Ivy Nkutha, the Generations legacy actress, had her car stolen in front of the SABC’s Henley Studios in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. She is still reeling from the shock.
While shooting the series on Monday, Nkutha, playing the role of Gog’Flo on the SABC 1 soapie, had her car stolen.
The seasoned actress was in disbelief when she was ready to go home and found someone else’s car in the spot where she had parked hers. Realisation final hit her that the robbers had made off with her grey Nissan Hard Body.
"I arrived at the SABC around 11.40am and finished at 4pm. When I got outside, I looked where I had parked my car and it was nowhere to be found," she said. "I was shocked and I stood there for a minute in disbelief. I was so confused that I even looked underneath other cars."
After Nkutha opened a case of theft at the Brixton Police Station, police have promised to look at the SABC surveillance cameras.
The incident really shocked the 75 year old actress but she said that she knows that many people have been victims like her.
"I was worried about how I would get home but I have actually put everything to God."
Born and raised in Alexandra, Nkutha studied nursing at the St Thomas Training Institution.
Nkutha travelled across the country after joining a dental care school as a dental educator. She went to butchers educating them on how to clean their meat in order for their customers to have good health for their teeth.
Nkutha has previously acted in shows such as Soul City, Muvhango, Isidingo, City Ses'La and later Zabalaza.
SABC acting spokeswoman Mmoni Seapolelo said: "All SABC permanent staff members and independent contractors including the actors are provided with an opportunity to park their cars within SABC secured parking spaces which are inside our premises.
"We have also allocated security personnel to guard Henley Street for the cars that park there. In this instance, the car that is referred to was not parked at Henley but at Ditton Street."
Confirmation by police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubela, that a case of theft has been opened at the Brixton police station. The case has yet to be registered.
