As it played out as an unfortunate attack, the serving minister was driving by himself without any VIP protection. However, Thabang Makwetla’s spokesperson‚ Ntime Skhosana‚ said the deputy minister arrived at the entrance of Life Riverfield Hospital next to Lion Park on Sunday about 7.30pm.
Makwetla left the car and advanced to enter the gate not knowing that there were men who had been following him.
“The men pointed firearm on him and then also forced the security guards at the gate to get back into the car with them. The guards were put in the boot of the car while the minister was in the back seat‚” Skhosana said.
Unfortunately the minister was driving by himself without any VIP protection.
As the men drove with him for a short distance, they took his bank cards and cellphone.
The men then forced the guard and the minister into another vehicle. They then took the card and went to withdraw cash with it before dumping them in an open veld in Madidi. In the North West.
The whole melodrama ended about 3am on Monday morning.
