A woman has taken to social media to share how she was robbed in front of people and nobody came to her assistance.
Twitter user Pretty48115230 shared a harrowing experience of how thugs jumped her while she was on her way home in Vereeniging. She says that they took her bags, which contained clothing, shoes and her laptop. They also took her purse, which contained her taxi fare and ID.
"I cried for help but people were passing me like there's nothing happening. No one helped me."
Mzansi social media users had words of comfort for the traumatised lady. Twitter user ms_tourist said:
"Eish so so sorry my angel, SA is really becoming something I can’t even explain."
While Mbali_Relebohil said:
"Vereeniging is very dangerous, please guys be careful..."
"You in my prayers tonight."
"So sorry to hear that Pretty. I cannot believe that people just pass by and do nothing. How did you get home from there. When are men going to get involved and help women. I just don't get it. Are you able to replace some of things?"
She responded by saying that someone paid for her taxi fare home.
