WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2016 : It has recently been revealed on reports that Rapulana Seiphemo was actually hijacked before the crash. An insider has revealed all details to Daily Sun on what occurred:
According to an insider, Rapulana was driving alone in a white Audi A4 when he stopped at a Diepsloot intersection known as a hijacking hotspot. Two thugs from Mamelodi, Tshwane jumped into his car.
The man in the front had a gun, the man in the back appears to have been unarmed.
“They made Rapulana drive towards Pretoria,” said the source.
“The thug at the back wasn’t listening to the instructions of the man in the front. It appears he panicked because he jumped out of the vehicle while it was moving.”
Another insider said while Rapulana was airlifted to Milpark Hospital, the investigating officer on the case received a tip-off and found the man who had jumped out of the car at another Gauteng hospital.
“He claimed he was injured in a car accident in Laudium, Tshwane,” said our second source. The officer left the thug but made enquiries and established that no such accident had taken place.
“The officer went back to get a statement so that if he lied he could be charged with perjury,” said the source.
Another person said nurses at the hospital tipped off the officer that he was trying to escape.
“He kept asking for a cellphone and he made calls to people to help him get out. The officer got an order to get him transferred to another hospital where he is now under police guard,” said the informant.
Police spokesman Captain Tsekiso Mofokeng said he can’t comment on anything as they are waiting for the investigation to be finalised.
