EFF MP Vuyani Pambo was the victim of a hijacking on Monday evening, the party said on Tuesday.

Pambo, who is the head of the party's presidency, was accosted by three men in Diepkloof, Gauteng.

In a statement on Tuesday, the party said it condemned "the hijacking of the EFF head of presidency, Commissar Vuyani Pambo, on the evening of 27 June 2022".

The red berets said the individuals, who were three well-built, masked men operated with precision when they hijacked Vuyani Pambo.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) says the hijacking of its Head of Presidency, Vuyani Pambo was premeditated to steal "certain valuable documents" in his possession.

It is understood Pambo was hijacked on Monday evening outside his mother's house, after three-armed men approached his vehicle and demanded money.

The red berets said the individuals, who were three well-built, masked men, operated with precision and took Pambo's vehicle outside the household of his mother, which is in a quiet and unassuming neighbourhood.

"The armed men drove around with the vehicle, and fled with his personal belongings, which include his passport, identity document, organisational material and other valuables," the EFF said.

"After completing their heist, they left the car behind. It is clear through the manner in which the operation was conducted, that it was premeditated, with the intention of intimidation and securing of certain valuable documents and information."

The party did not specify the details of the documents that were stolen.

The EFF said it is thankful that Pambo, his child, and his mother were left unharmed.

"This incident reveals yet again that no one is immune to criminal activity in South Africa, and that the continued incompetence of this government has given criminals boldness to strike with full knowledge that there will be no consequence."

The EFF added that the levels of criminality, especially of organised crime have reached intolerable levels, particularly abductions, hijackings and assassinations.
