Akhumzi Jezile recalls his hijack ordeal

Actor and television presenter Akhumzi Jezile is still traumatised after he escaped death following a botched hijacking of his BMW in November last year.

Jezile spoke for the first time about his ordeal this week and told Sunday World that he was still trying to recover from the traumatic incident.

The 27-year-old former YoTV child star said he was driving in Auckland Park, Joburg, when two men approached him at a stop sign and pointed a gun at him. Jezile said he thought they wanted to hijack him.

"I'm really trying to get over this and put it behind me because it was a very traumatic experience. They pulled me out of my car, punching and kicking me and calling me a s**t celebrity."
