Msimanga was attacked by two armed men outside a restaurant in Midrand. 

“I am still shaken but grateful to be alive. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, to have to be put in a position where you think your life will end in any second. I don’t want anybody to ever go through this,” says Msimanga.

He says his Mercedes was later discovered in Ga-Rankuwa. 

“When the car was discovered it had already been fitted with fake number plates and was left in Ga-Rankuwa. They wanted to see if anyone would come for it. They had already removed the tracker but I was told the car came with a secondary tracker which is how it was found."

No arrests have been made. 

Msimanga says he does not believe the incident was politically-motivated.
