Tshwane Metro Police Department's Isaac Mahamba joined Breakfast with Martin Bester on Monday morning to discuss what plans they have in place to keep citizens safe. 

Breakfast with Martin Bester spoke to a mother who survived a hijacking after fake police stopped her on the side of the road. The suspects pushed the mother and son off the road and Gerda pulled off as a 'blue uniform' walked towards the vehicle.

However, Martin Bester realised it happens more often than we think after speaking to people in his community.  

Police have urged the public to be aware of bogus ‘cops’ hijacking motorists on the N1 highway between Midrand and Centurion.  

The Midrand N1 North and South, and certain offramps, have been identified as hijacking hotspots after several cases were recently reported at the Midrand police station.
