SABC reporter Pimani Baloyi survives hijacking attempt while covering violent Vumani protests in Limpopo as two shots fired at her car.
Pimani Baloyi's car was shot at, with a bullet damaging the bonnet of the vehicle and also blowing out one of the tyres.
The attempted car hijacking took place when the two shots were fired on the car as she drove over a bridge between Rotterdam and Olifantshoek villages in Limpopo on Thursday.
"When I got to the bridge, I saw men wearing balaclavas," she told SABC News.
"When they saw that I was running, they ran after me and fired two shots," said Pimani Baloyi.
