Khulubuse's car hijacked outside KFC

2012-10-23 08:40

Durban - A luxury car belonging to President Jacob Zuma’s nephew - Aurora mine boss Khulubuse Zuma - was hijacked outside a KFC outlet in Umbilo.

The car was driven by Zuma’s bodyguard, who had gone into the outlet to buy food when he was held up by two gunmen, reported the Daily News.

Zuma was not in the BMW 740i at the time but at his Durban North home.

A source said: “They pointed the gun at the bodyguard’s head and demanded he show them how to drive the car. It seemed like the technology of the BMW 740i was a bit confusing for them.”

The bodyguard then tried to show them how to start the car but the men panicked when they heard who the car belonged to.  

They stole the contents of the bodyguard’s wallet and drove off in the car, which was later found undamaged in Inanda.

      This photo has just taken me far back into the past. many years ago Total distributed a little plastic toy when you filled up your car for about R20:00: the "Galoop". Now those were the days.

      Some Suspension this BMW ! - 2012-10-23 09:27

      The question is: did they get away with Kulubuse's 21 piece barrel or the guards streetwise 2 ?

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-10-23 09:28

      They were only after the KFC. They ate some themselves and with the rest fed all the starving workers of Aurora.

      jess.wags.5 - 2012-10-23 09:29

      Suspension of this car would be a little lopsided.

      TshilidziPhuravhathu - 2012-10-23 09:34

      They should have just took the car and left the wallet alone, how else did the expect to get the KFC for his boss now?

      greg.quinn.353 - 2012-10-23 09:35

      Bwahaha... Zuma wasn't in the car cos his head was stuck down a bucket of KFC at the back of the kitchen..

      beverly.young3 - 2012-10-23 09:37

      LOL!!! they had to be shown how to use the car as it had e x t r a wiiiiiiiiddeee seats!!!!!!!!! hee hee hee

      scouter.fourone - 2012-10-23 09:40

      This is the best - the combination of the individual's profile, the luxury car, the bodyguard and KFC. You couldn't wish for a better thumb sketch of the 'New SA' Elite. The only thing missing in the article is mention of a 'Blue Light' ......

      john.kirkwood.9619 - 2012-10-23 09:41

      Looking at the photo i can see what he was doing at KFC,even the high jackersthought he could use the walk

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-10-23 09:55

      Khulubuse's favourite position is Missionary Impossible.

      klippies.coke.7 - 2012-10-23 10:00

      It wasn't hijackers, it was the world health organisation!

      heathway.master - 2012-10-23 10:01

      Wonderful news. Maybe he is getting a small taste of what so many South Africans have to endure in this lawless country during their hard working, taxpaying lives. They do not make their fortunes on the backs of their much suffering, criminally treated, black brothers. It would seem that family genes are after all, are passed on from one generation to the next.

      shirley.steenkamp - 2012-10-23 10:18

      Here is a reason to see why fast food is not good for your waistline! The walk home would do him good. Hope they sell the car and disperse the takings amongst the miners STILL waiting to be paid!

      Buzzbar - 2012-10-23 10:29

      Bet that couch he is sitting on in the picture is creaking under the weight. What do my fellow readers estimate he weighs in at 180kg? higher?

      cameron.modisane - 2012-10-23 11:30

      Khulubuse came out KFC with his 21 piece bucket and said "hawu madoda imoto yam iphi?" What is the likelihood that Khulubuse's car was just parked infront of the KFC, but he was actually at a gym? In sympathising with Khulubuse Zuma stolen BMW 740i, KFC will now change its name to Khulubuse's Fried Chicken!

      waiszee.sing - 2012-10-23 12:58

      DAMN! this dude is HUGE

      alex.marshall.944023 - 2012-10-23 17:54

      Hijacking or a weighless intervention?

  • werner.nel.984786 - 2012-10-23 08:49

    Does this fat thing need more KFC? Probably "sold" his beemer to buy more KFC

      saintbruce.bruce - 2012-10-23 09:52

      Komrades Food Company - He's a "regular" !

      lerato.kay.3 - 2012-10-23 10:20

      This guy must hook up with Mazibuko, they have got 2 things in common, obesity and both needs to stay away from KFC.

      rontheogre - 2012-10-23 10:27

      No, Werner, it was agents of the Heart Foundation doing an intervention ;) I can't wait for a Nando's response to this.

      clifford.sithole.5 - 2012-10-23 10:29

      The poor man must be a wreck after that ordeal . Please find these criminals soonest

      mastermindpete - 2012-10-23 11:02

      Yeah but Lindiwe has not got so fat at the expense of thousands of unpaid, unfed and unemployed mineworkers. How does a person still have a 740 BMW, stay so fat and yet claim to have no money to pay the WEKKA's. Oh yes BBBEE at it's best, emphasis on the BBRROOOOAAAADD !!!

      tasmee.hylkema - 2012-10-23 18:49

      @clifford! heeeeeeeee heeeeeeeeeee love your sense if humour!

  • Swapie - 2012-10-23 08:50

    Mmm. At KFC. Buying food for the boss. As for the high- jackers: Epic fail. The tokolishe is coming for you!

      kenpeg.dawson - 2012-10-23 09:35

      He is wanted for questioning for impersonating a Metro Cop. That size and at KFC. "GUILTY AS CHARGED"

      TshilidziPhuravhathu - 2012-10-23 09:35

      I bet the boss was more angry at the fact that his gard didnt bring the KFC than the fact that he had to walk back home...

  • thadelphukem.completely - 2012-10-23 08:50

    Amazing, at KFC hey!!!! Bet you he held on to his KFC 21 piece bucket for all his life... Take the car, just leave my chicken!!!! Bhwahahahahahahaha

      sedeshan - 2012-10-23 08:57

      Hahaha! Please! Not the chicken! I'll even give you a drum stick!

      Barefoot - 2012-10-23 09:17

      if you read the story before commenting you'd find it's funnier.

  • JAbu.R15 - 2012-10-23 08:51

    So this is the guy who failed to pay his workers and he drives such an expensive car? talk of a fat cat, literally; I think Garfield will hate that expression after seeing this oke. anyhoo moving along swiftly, it is said that they panicked after hearing who the car belonged to? does that mean being a zuma is privileged that you are guaranteed not to get hijacked?

  • jan.human - 2012-10-23 08:53

    The robbers chicken out!

  • thabelo.maraka - 2012-10-23 08:54

    I bet it was the 21 piece bucket for breakfast,,

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-10-23 09:29

      With 10 servings of chips, 17 milkshakes, 2 rennies and a role of toilet paper.

  • andile.mali.73 - 2012-10-23 08:55

    This is not news worthy. Who cares about the zuma's and their posessions?

      The-future Vundhla - 2012-10-23 09:05

      we truly do not care

      greg.quinn.353 - 2012-10-23 09:38

      We don't care.. but it's flipping funny

      steve.ritchie.739 - 2012-10-23 09:52

      @Andile & Vundhla. Maybe you should care. It is these fat-cat thieves that are stealing yours and all the tax-payers hard earned money, lining their own pockets instead of keeping promises made to the poor. Or maybe you condone it????

      kenpeg.dawson - 2012-10-23 09:53

      A lot of people care. Who else are we going to laugh at. Malema ols news.

  • hayley.fredericks.9 - 2012-10-23 09:00

    This is is proof that these V.I.P'S are living on KFC...they don't get this fat from eating salads...and to get Hijacked doing this.....can'nt stop laughing.

  • tertius.aswegen - 2012-10-23 09:04

    Sounds fishy this story

      Blackpoison - 2012-10-23 09:11

      It was KFC...not Something

      anthea.lagrange - 2012-10-23 11:38

      Definitely fowl play involved.

  • monty.pulumo - 2012-10-23 09:06

    shuuu! if i was that huge, i bet my car would be hijacked next to Virgin Active, lol, and for the life of it, i wouldn't let any fool bring KFC, not even its box, 100m closer to me, whahahahah.

  • fran.aphane - 2012-10-23 09:09

    Of course they were there to buy their master some fried chicken. Look at the size of this guy? That's our tax moolah bloody fatty boom boom. Tltltltltltl!

  • terrylee.heuer - 2012-10-23 09:11

    I'm sorry but this story is funny!!! They panicked when they realised who the car belongs to but still went off with it??!!! I don't care two hoots for Zumas nephew he abandoned his miners and made them starve for months the Gift of the Givers had to take them food!!!!! Feel bad for the bodyguard having a gun held against his head don't wish that upon anyone!!!

    The bodyguard called him and the respond :they must take the car and leave my 21 pieces alone or else you are fired but try to negotiate with them.

  • will.glibbery - 2012-10-23 09:26

    No wonder he was not in the car when it was hijacked. How do you get that lardass out of anything without a crane? Even if you were a motivated Aurora employee spurred on by hunger and a lack of pay cheques, it would be a bridge too far.

  • JohnDough - 2012-10-23 09:31

      True Nhlanhla.

      darryl.maze.5 - 2012-10-23 11:21

      Why should we care if his life was in danger??? He desserted the miners that worked for him and they are starving. Hope this FAT PIG has a stroke soon.

      Andrea - 2012-10-23 11:57

      We'll wait to hear when he chokes on a chicken wing(s), maybe then we will have more sympathy (or not) for this rubbish.

      tasmee.hylkema - 2012-10-23 18:59

      shame Nhlanhla, but i feel more sympathy for the mineworkers families who are starving because their bread earners committed suicide because they were not paid, so some useless thief could afford this vehicle and the driver to go with it. Anyway, people of all races are hijacked and murdered on a daily basis, why should this person be spared? I hope he chokes on his chicken! And to top it all off, IT IS HILLARIOUS!
