You need to report the theft to the police station with the cars details so that they can try look for it at the Mozambique border.
Tracker? Insurance?
Otherwise, you're not going to find it or get your money back.

Go to the cop shop, phone insurance.

If you have no insurance then do the following - Go To Jail Go directly to Jail. Do not pass GO, do not collect R200.

Sorry for your loss.

Step 1: Go to police station, report it stolen.
Step 2: Report to insurance.
Step 3: Get a drink, it's Friday.

If you don't have insurance, skip step 2 and repeat step 3 till you can't.

This happened to me a few years ago to my citi golf - was stolen outside a train station.

Walk around the area to see if there are any CC TV cameras (walk around all possible Exits) - form there you can get a time or if you lucky a clear picture of who took it.

Sorry for your loss dude. It's been 3 hours, that car could be anywhere by now. Without tracker/insurance I assume it is an older model, if that is the case rip dude.

Nevermind a tracking unit, thirdparty and theft insurance is essential for ANY car/bike/scooter. Way too risky to roam around without it.

If you happen to hit a Porsche with your uninsured car, basically rip your foreseeable financial future.

basically a lost cause
See it as a valuable life lesson learned. An expensive one though...

Hope you come right dude, this absolutely sucks.
