Pretoria- Sunday 15th September, 2019—— Four Zambian trucks belonging to different companies in Zambia have been hijacked in Johannesburg, South Africa by unknown people.

South African Police in Gauteng Province have recovered the four Zambian trucks that were hijacked in that country in the early hours of Sunday.

Three of the trucks were found abandoned in the industrial area of Steeledale, about 15 kilometers from the hijacking scene in Wadeville, Germiston.

The other truck was also found abandoned around Dragon City area within Johannesburg.

According to the information made available to the Zambian Mission in Pretoria, the four trucks were recovered by South African Police in conjunction with a private vehicle tracking firm that the companies had engaged to provide tracking system for their trucks.

First Secretary for Press and Public Relations Naomi Nyawali says the locations of the abandoned trucks were discovered by following signals that were transmitted by trackers that were installed on the trucks.

Mrs Nyawali said the the trucks have since been parked at the South African Police FNB impounding yard in Soweto awaiting further investigations.

She said authorities indicated that no arrests have been made so far in connection with the matter but that all the vehicle engines they were carrying destined for reconditioning at some garages were missing.

Mrs Nyawali said the Mission was further informed that the trucks were found in good condition.

She said in a statement that all the four Zambian drivers that were victims of the hijacking are still in South Africa awaiting for further instructions.

    • Sounds like an organized crime, it will trace back to Zambia. Nothing to do with xenophobic shhit.
      How did tthe Zulu- barbarians know about engines in trucks, hooo maybe from their clearing agent?
      I can’t rule out Kaizer and Valden, I would slap them to say something, I don’t trust those guys. They should be first to be cleared of innocence.

    • Can’t agree more. That is why the actualization of the Nicala corridor in Mozambique is crucial. Wonder why the 2.3b project linking Tazara to the rail line in Chipata via Petauke has stalled. Of the 2 export routes available for Zambia now Durban SA is the furthest at 2,134km followed by Dar 1531km. To export via Port Beira in Mozambique is a mere 1070km. It’s therefore a smart thing for Zambia to look to the east as an alternative by first constructing a road to link Serenje and Petauke for copper exports otherwise one day we will be stuck like during the days of UDI.

  2. These are the problems We need to address before we can talk about the nonsense of an Africa free trade area. How can you have a free trade area if your trucks can’t move freely?

  3. @ Nostradamus. Do you want to tell me that not a single company in Zambia cannot do something basic like engine reconditioning? Really? “Zulu Barbarians” as you call them must be smarter than civilized Zambians

    • @Mulenga naimwe you live there is hell, you know that it’s Nigerians and Ghanians who recondition those stolen engines from Zambia. Recondition engine in Zambia maybe arrested, better take to South Africa.
      Your host barbarian attack those fellow crooks in those condemned buildings, they burn down those stolen uninsured vehicles.
      Your South Africa is crime scene.

  4. Zambia needs to wise up and actualize of the Nicala corridor in Mozambique. Wonder why the 2.3b project linking Tazara to the rail line in Chipata via Petauke has stalled. Of the 2 export routes available for Zambia now Durban SA is the furthest at 2,134km followed by Dar 1531km. To export via Port Beira in Mozambique is a mere 1070km. It’s therefore a smart thing for Zambia to look to the east as an alternative by first constructing a road to link Serenje and Petauke for copper exports otherwise one day we will be stuck like during the days of Ian Smith’s UDI.

  5. Samba 5.1 you are wrong! Sex is like music, you don’t need to understand what the other person is saying to enjoy it. You listen to Rhumba or that South African beat and yet get no meaning at all but that doesn’t stop you from enjoying the music.
