Parliament on Tuesday revealed that a National Council of Provinces MP was hijacked and brutally assaulted.
In a statement, South Africa’s national legislature condemned the attack on Simphiwe George Mthimunye who was recovering at home in Mpumalanga following his harrowing ordeal.
“Mthimunye was accosted by four men on foot while he parked outside his brother’s home.
“He was forced into the back seat of his own vehicle and taken to a veld where the would-be robbers tortured him for hours,” the statement said.
“The men then made off with his valuable possessions, which include a vehicle, cellphones and bank cards.”
The parliament has wished him quick recovery.
