Crime is still rife in South Africa regardless of the lockdown. In another crime caught on video, a Fastway Couriers vehicle was hijacked in Gauteng. In the security video uploaded to Twitter by @Abramjee (Yusuf Abramjee), the vehicle can be seen pulling up in front of a gate.

Not long after, a white Nissan Almera pulls up behind the courier van before three assailants jump out and run straight to the courier van. One assailant runs straight to the passenger door and the other two to the driver's side. The vehicle they arrived in leaves.

The gate begins to open and a clearer view of the crime is visible. The van jerks forward whilst the assailants remove the driver of the courier van and jump in. Since its upload earlier today, the video has received over 7 000 views.

In the video, a man can be seen holding what seems to be a gun in front of a lady. The lady looks to be taking off her rings to hand hem to him when a child runs up to her. The child proceeds to hold onto her leg before the gun-wielding man kicks the woman.
