Cape Town – A would-be hijacker could have lost his foot after his intended victim turned the tide on him.

The thug got a nasty surprise on Wednesday when he tried to rob an e-hailing driver in Philippi East.

But the on-the-ball driver from Goodwood was alert and fought off the armed attacker by running him over with his car. The jacker was left bloodied and with a broken foot, the bones visibly showing.

“I dealt with him,” says driver Mulisa Nemathaga. “I am from Joburg, I do not play around.”

Mulisa, 33, says he was lured to Philippi-East by the skelm who had requested a ride via an app.

It's refreshing not to read "alleged". Reporter goes even further, using"thug" instead. Bravo reporting.

Mulisa said he fought with the dief who had his car keys and got them back but was then threatened with a gun.

Let's hope he has to have his foot amputated, the "Dief"
Well Done Mulisa Nemathaga (the driver according to the report)
