Tumi Sole says: “Remain calm and don’t make sudden gestures. Avoid eye contact and comply with hijackers instructions. Move away from the car & get children out.”

Tumi Sole adds: “Check appointment card on front for the following: SAPS at the top , full colour pic of the officer on the left and a star-shaped SAPS emblem in holographic print on the right. The officer’s initials & surname will be in blocked letters at the bottom. 

Lastly, the attorney says: “Check appointment card at the bank for the ff. Force number with eight digits -13 digit ID number, Officer’s rank, date & place of issue and SAPS commissioner signature bottom right.”
