Durban - Two alleged hijackers have appeared in the Ubombo Magistrate's Court, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

Fana Innocent Mdluli, 37, and Bheki Herbeerd Zulu, 36, appeared on Wednesday on a charge of hijacking a Toyota Hi-ace taxi and of possession of an unlicensed firearm, said Captain Thulani Zwane.

Mdluli and Zulu allegedly hijacked a 26-year-old taxi driver who picked them up in the Dunduluzi area, near Nongoma, on Tuesday.
