- A man in a van called a woman walking on the street over and it spooked her
- The lady decided to walk away and the guy continued to pursue her
- She took a video of the suspicious-looking van and it has since gone viral online
Human trafficking has been trending in South Africa and women are fearing for their safety. A recent video further fuelled concerns.
A woman filmed a suspicious-looking van following her. The lady details in the clip that the man tried to approach her and when she walked away he slowly drove next to her.
The incident clearly left her spooked and the unidentified woman decided to make a video of the alleged perpetrator. The video has since been shared online by social media user @THIZOZO_MOKOENA, who claims to be the distressed woman's co-worker.
The post was captioned:
"Guys this thing is real! My colleague almost got kidnapped in Vereeniging CBD yesterday! Please retweet for awareness!"
Take a look at the clip below:
The video gathered over 101 500 views and South Africans expressed their concerns over the footage in the comment section.
Thabelo_Iven, who goes by the Twitter handle @Thabeloiven02, commented:
"This is sad, criminals are getting tips and plans on how to kidnap girls... so now that bus is a topic, they're now going to use G-Wagon or BMW or Audi."
Social media user, @wild_0mega, wrote:
"Last year I saw cops reviewing these car and it has thick steel. Once you are inside even if you scream nobody hears you from outside."
Another tweep, @MySoulMiAlma, said:
"The day one of these animals get caught by the mob, they will regret the day they were born."
In other news, Briefly.co.za earlier reported South African Twitter users have taken to the social networking site to express their disdain for the EFF. Tweeps have started the hashtag #VoetsekEFF and it has been trending for a while now as people have been listing reasons to not support the political party.
Many Saffa tweeps are talking about the EFF's lack of awareness on subjects such as GBV and human trafficking. Other tweeps believe that the EFF is concerning themselves more with issues relating to foreign nationals in SA.
EFF's Mbuyisenidlozi took to his Twitter to speak about the borders in SA. He said:
"Why take our attention to the border and away from our oppressors? The border didn't oppress us, whites did, today with ANC's permission."
