A case of armed robbery was opened at the Verulam police station. A close friend to the midday show host, who did not want to be named, said: “Selby was almost hijacked on Saturday and they took everything. He was with friends and the would-be hijackers took all their belongings.
They tried to take the car but couldn’t, so they just took the car keys. No one was hurt,” said the friend.
Mkhize took to social media later: “The past 24hrs. What a nightmare.”
