Photos of a South African National Defence Force (SANDF) member who seems to be an unfortunate victim of a daylight car hijack are trending on Twitter, with others reporting that it is indeed a hijack and putting the blame on foreigners, Zimbabweans in particular.
A whole SANDF member in full uniform reduced to a bundle of joy by armed illegal foreigners, if this is not an attack on the sovereignty of our nation then I don’t know what it is. Where are the red beret zombies that marched to Senekal the other day? #WeWantOurCountryBack pic.twitter.com/v33BCJq9tm

Apparently, just by looking at the armed man, some can tell that he is a Zimbabwean former law enforcement member. However, the South Africa Daily begs to differ, disputing that this is not a hijacking at all, but an arrest.
