On Sunday, Sylvester Masimo had to watch his bakkie go up in flames. According to The Sowetan, Masimo had taken the lady with him to the Boksburg police station to find help.
The 44-year-old was inside the station filing a report that detailed the abuse he suffered at her hands while they were together, when she allegedly set his vehicle on fire.
"She was abusive and very dramatic. She has beaten me up, hit me with bottles and threw hot water over me ... so I could no longer stand the abuse and drama," Masimo said, after revealing they had broken up a year ago.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the incident but has since learned the two were not married and she allegedly torched his bakkie because he refused to take her back.
Police arrested Audrey Kagande, 47, for allegedly setting Masimo's bakkie alight at the Boksburg North police station.
Masimo revealed he told Kagande that she should not come to his house because he is married now and did not want her back. However, she continued with her threats and he decided to seek the help of the law.
While he was busy inside the police station telling the cops what was happening, Masimo heard people shouting from outside that a vehicle was burning.
"I ran there with everyone else, only to find that it was my car that was on fire. A man who saw the woman walking away after torching the vehicle alerted the police and they gave chase. She was arrested two streets away," he said.
