Chief audit executive at the SABC Thamsanqa (Thami) Zikode survived an assassination attempt after he was followed home from the public broadcaster on Friday night.

"The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has learnt with shock, the news of the attempted assassination of its chief audit executive.
