Soapie Actor Macdonald Ndou, who plays the popular character of KK, narrowly escaped death when armed men hijacked and drove off with him in the Joburg CBD two weeks ago.
Sunday World is reporting that, Ndou was hijacked in seedy Jeppestown on the night of August 7.
After the victim parked his Audi, he was approached by three men as he was about to close the gate. Two of them were armed with firearms. They put him in the passenger s seat and robbed him of a cellphone and bank cards before they drove off.
Ndou s car was recovered on the same day around Edenpark after they abandoned him and his car,” said police spokesman Richard Munyai.
Ndou, who is known for wearing shiny suits on the SABC2 multilingual soapie, confirmed he faced real-life drama when he was hijacked at the gate of his residence.
He was hesitant to share further information, saying it would jeopardise police investigations.
I can t give you all [the] information because I am still working with the police. Giving out the whole story could jeopardise police investigations,” he said.
