In a shocking turn of events, former Banyana Banyana star Portia Modise, renowned for her prowess on the football field, found herself at the mercy of criminals as she fell victim to a daring hijacking incident. The harrowing encounter took place at her residence in White City, Soweto, leaving the ex-footballer shaken but grateful to be alive.

The incident, which took place on Saturday evening, 6 July, saw Modise leaving her home in White City, Soweto, when she was confronted by five young men. Armed with firearms, they demanded her car, a blue VW Golf with Gauteng number plates.

"I'm not okay, guys. I need your help to get my car back," Modise shared in a video posted on her social media, her voice trembling with fear. "Please, guys, I didn't sleep at all. My car was taken by young guys who pointed firearms at me."

The incident has sparked widespread concern and condemnation, with many expressing their support and solidarity with Modise. The former player's bravery in sharing her experience serves as a powerful reminder of the vulnerability of even the most celebrated figures in our society.

"The police are on the lookout for the suspects and the car after the former Banyana Banyana soccer player was hijacked in White City, Soweto, on the evening of Saturday, 06 July 2024. It is reported that the victim was driving out of the yard when she noticed five males in front of the gate," explained Lieutenant-Colonel Mavela Masondo, spokesperson for the Gauteng Police. "She asked the suspects to move so that she could drive past. It was then that she was pointed with firearms and hijacked."

Masondo further revealed that two of the suspects drove away with Modise's VW Golf 5, while the other three escaped in a silver VW Polo. The victim was also robbed of her cellphone, but thankfully, no shots were fired.

The police's search for the suspects and the car is ongoing, with investigators combing the area for any leads. The incident has highlighted the need for increased security measures in Soweto, a community that has been plagued by crime for far too long.
