Zimbabwean footballer Willard Katsande was involved in a gruesome hijacking event in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

Three men kidnapped Katsande in the Southgate Mall parking lot and hauled him to the ground, leaving him with injuries.

A tracking company later found Katsande’s vehicle in Eldorado Park, but it was badly damaged.

He lost both business and personal goods worth thousands of rands, including a cellphone and cash in the car at the time of the incident.

The player said he is traumatized because of his past road rage episode. He has since filed a report with the police.
