The suspects robbed all the victims of their cellphones and forcefully took one of them, driving off with his vehicle.

Thankfully, Buthelezi has since returned home unharmed on Friday morning. The police have opened a case of hijacking and kidnapping for investigation, but no arrests have been made at this time.

This is not the first time that the 26-year-old goalkeeper has been affected by crime. In 2022, Buthelezi was stabbed during a car hijacking in Soweto.

The incident occurred at a filling station while he and his brother were returning from visiting their ailing mother. Unfortunately, his brother was also stabbed during the attack.

Pirates spokesperson Thandi Merafe has asked for Buthelezi to be given space to recover from this traumatic ordeal. The club and his fans will undoubtedly offer their support and well wishes during this difficult time.
