Mzansi actress, Neo Ramitshana, was assaulted by a bouncer at a Menlyn restaurant in Pretoria on Women’s Day.
The Skeem Saam actress took to social media to detail the unfortunate event which led to her becoming a victim of woman abuse.
According to a statement Neo shared on social media, she was assaulted by Altitude bouncers. Neo stated that a bouncer at the Altitude restaurant in Menlyn grabbed her by the neck and assaulted her when she tried to collect her takeaway which she had forgotten at the restaurant.
Neo also stated that she was stripped down during the altercation and when asked to speak to the manager was sent from pillar to post which eventually was a complete waste of time. The restaurant manager has since refuted the claims made by Neo.
Take a look at Neo's statements she shared on Twitter below:
According to Youth Village, the restaurant club released a statement on their Facebook page saying their efforts to contact Neo have been futile. They also confirmed that they had suspended the bouncer in question and clarified that he was not from Nigeria.
However, Neo denied that she was ever contacted by Altitude after the said incident.
“Also how is it that Altitude claims to have suspended the bouncer when in a different article they claim I’m the one who attacked him,” asked Neo.
Meanwhile, social media users were irate over the incident and have posted a few words of encouragement to the TV star.
Meanwhile, just over a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that police have condemned an attack on officers in Burgersfort, Limpopo. The community had allegedly demanded that murder suspects should be handed over to them for 'punishment'.
A video depicting an angry mob attacking police officers has gone viral, prompting outcry from the authorities.
National police spokesperson Vishnu Naidoo commented that an 'angry and violent' mob had attacked police officers outside of a magistrate's court. The mob had reportedly gathered to demanded murder suspects be handed over to them for 'punishment'.
Naidoo explains that when Public Order Policing had arrived at the scene they were attacked by the community. This resulted in one female officer being dragged on the ground and assaulted, following which the police were pelted with stones.
