We live in a country where hijackings are an every day thing, Skeem Saam actor Eric Macheru almost became a statistic on Sunday evening after he was almost hijacked in Greenstone, Johannesburg.

According to TshisaLive Eric stoped at an intersection when an unknown man approached his vehicle.

At that moment the Skeem Saam actor decided to skip the red robot and flee for his life, the man who had approched his vehicle jumped into a car and gave chase.

According to Eric in the interview, a second vehicle joined in the chase and braked in front of him, luckily he was able to swerve, speed off and skip a few robots.

A police vehicle spotted Eric and followed him and the two vehicles that were trying to hijack him sped off.   Eric posted a a photo of the two police men who helped him escape the hijacking. He captioned the photo "I just nearly got hijacked or probably would have... and if it wasn't for the universe and these brothers... Only God knows."
