When the brand manager for Grand Café Africa was made an offer he couldn’t refuse, he went to alleged underworld boss Mark Lifman for protection.

Radley Dijkers, the state’s first witness in the extortion trial of Nafiz Modack and three associates, told the Cape Town Regional Court that he visited Lifman’s after telling police about a R90,000 extortion payment to a rival.
