Cape Town – Jacaranda FM DJ Paul Rotherham has detailed his wife's injuries after she was shot twice by hijackers.

Rotherham posted the following on his Facebook page on Thursday: "The bullet entered the top of her hand and exited through her wrist causing some nasty damage along the way, we're hoping it's all repairable."

Rotherham's wife, Zina, managed to drive away after hijackers fired at her near the Gautrain's Marlboro station at 17:20 on Wednesday.

She had just dropped off a friend and was looking for a turnoff when the hijacker fired two shots through her windscreen.

Rotherham has since taken to Twitter to thank everyone who responded so fast to help his wife: "It's a long list but, for now, sincere thanks to @EMER_G_MED @PigSpotter @emer_g_med4 @Netcare911SA @K9_unit_GP for your fast response!"

Zina has also been tweeting from her hospital bed since waking up. She posted the following message on Thursday: "Feeling strong everyone.Thankyou for all the kind words and support! @PaulRotherhamZA and I appreciate you all very much! ?#warrior? ?#princess"
