In light of the ever-present threat of kidnapping, Elon Musk’s father has revealed that his son has installed new high-tech security systems at his South African residence.
In December, contractors arrived at the property of Errol Musk, a 76-year-old retired engineer, in Langebaan, 90 miles north of Cape Town.
He described the new security measures as “first-rate,” adding that he did not enjoy living in a fortress, but was accustomed to it, having previously resided in crime-ridden Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Musk murdered three armed intruders while his then-six-year-old daughter Ali clung to his leg in 1998.
He told The Sun that televisions had been stolen from his home four times in the past year alone.
He remarked, “Frankly, the risk of something bad happening or literally being shot is quite high.”
I will not be participating in any open-air vehicle parades, to put it plainly.
If someone wanted to kill me, it wouldn’t be difficult, so hopefully they won’t.

Errol Musk, a father of seven, resides in Langebaan, north of Cape Town.
In May 2022, Errol Musk is photographed at his residence. He was an engineer and was born in Pretoria.
Errol, who has fathered at least seven children to three different women, including two children with his 34-year-old stepdaughter Jana Bezuidenhuit, stated that he assumed his son’s fear stemmed from his recent acquisition of Twitter.

Musk stated last month that his attempts to make the platform more transparent put him at risk because he is revealing what he perceives to be U.S. government cooperation with the tech company to block information.
He froze the accounts of journalists who retweeted the account’s tweets
The 51-year-old claimed that the surveillance of the jet led to a ‘crazy stalker’ following a car carrying his little son, X A-12, in Los Angeles, and that the user posted ‘essentially assassination locations.’
On May 8, as the acquisition of Twitter was still being negotiated, he tweeted, “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been great knowing you.”
Errol’s son believed he was susceptible and concerned that kidnappers may make the “quickest $20 million dollars in history” by targeting his family.

Errol is depicted cradling his infant son Elon. Elon’s mother Maye and Errol divorced in 1979, resulting in a rocky relationship between the two. Elon left South Africa at the age of 17 and travelled to Canada in order to attend college in North America.
“After recent threats against him, he determined that I also require protection,” Errol told The Sun.
If they kidnap one of us, it will be the fastest $20 million anyone has ever made.
I believe Elon is a bit naive regarding the enemies he is creating, particularly with the Twitter Files.
Even though Elon is surrounded by around 100 security officers, I’m terrified that something might happen to him.
Errol stated that his home in the Western Cape is now equipped with a high-tech video system, electric fencing, and ‘armed to the teeth’ guards who monitor it around the clock.
He told the newspaper, “Elon’s people contacted me to inform me that they wanted to completely secure my home.”
This security company informed me in December that they have been instructed to safeguard the residence.
Therefore, I now have nine monitored, around-the-house cameras that I can monitor on my phone or television.
“I now have first-rate security. It’s unbelievable.’
In March of 2014, Errol Musk visited his son in Boulder, Colorado.
Elon Musk is observed at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party with his mother, Maye.
It was backed up by a generator, so it would continue to function even during South Africa’s frequent power outages.
The system, according to Errol, cost over $15,000, and his security personnel were ‘armed to the teeth.’
He continued, “They constantly check on me.” If they observe a foreign vehicle in my driveway, they will inquire about my well-being.
“I despise living this way, but I’ve lived this way in Johannesburg and Pretoria, so I understand where they’re coming from.”
Elon’s connection with his father is significantly more distant than his relationship with his mother, Maye, with whom he is regularly observed.
Maye Musk and Errol Musk divorced in 1979, when Elon was eight years old.
Elon lived with his mother until he left South Africa at age 17 to attend school in Canada.
Now 70 years old, Maye resides in New York City, her eighth city in three countries.
