Savvy driving skills and a fearless desire to catch the crooks have made a household name out of Leo Prinsloo, whose calmness under pressure has earned him a vast array of plaudits in the last seven days. The former top cop managed to derail a Cash-In-Transit (CIT) heist, and a video of the incident has been beamed across the world.

THE FOOTAGE EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT GETS A SEQUEL…

The clip is from an incident that took place on the N4 highway in Pretoria last month. The armoured vehicle is attacked on the road – but the driver and his colleague, Lloyd Mtombeni, maintain cool heads, bringing the fight to the suspects.

They manage to evade one of the assailants’ vehicles – despite being under fire for most of the ordeal. The video that went viral made Leo Prinsloo a national hero. But we aren’t done lauding him just yet…

New footage shared online shows the sheer bravery exhibited by Leo Prinsloo behind the wheel, and his comrade Mtombeni in the passenger seat.

The security team can be seen taking on the thugs – ramming into their vehicle as it nips ahead of them.

WHO IS LEO PRINSLOO?

Prinsloo is reportedly a former member of the South African Police Service (SAPS) Task Force who left the service around 2004. He now runs his own weapons training academy in Centurion, Tshwane. He also works as an armed security escort – a very dangerous side-hustle – to earn extra income.

However, being thrust into the public eye for an act of heroism doesn’t come without its downsides. Leo Prinsloo and his family are now under armed guard, after he received death threats from criminals thought to be involved in the botched CIT heist. Truly, no good deed ever goes unpunished in Mzansi…
