The incident happened early on Monday on the N3 between Vosloorus and Heidelberg.  

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Department of Transportation stated that spikes left on the road punctured Chikunga’s car’s tires.

According to SAPS service pistols and personal belongings, Chikunga and her bodyguards were robbed, according to police spokesperson Athlenda Mathe.

“Members involved are receiving necessary support and counselling. The minister has, in the meantime, been provided with alternative resources.

“The police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
