18 August will forever be a day that actress Florence Masebe remembers. The actress was shot by unnamed gunmen 40 times on 18 August 1999.
The star miraculously survived the attack, and she always marks the day with a touching post on her social media pages.
Taking to her Instagram page this year, Maseko referred to herself as a lioness for surviving the attack that almost claimed her life. The actress added that she had not provoked anyone but was still attacked. She wrote:
Teenage girl stoned to death allegedly by boyfriend in Limpopo, family says she hoped to be a doctor
"She bothered nobody... They shot her and disappeared into thin air. They were so sure... They didn't realise that this was a rare lioness. All those bullets pumped into her body and this young woman survived. She lived! I live!

"23 years on, I find this date still creeps in on me with a peculiar urge to recognise the victory... I did not die on August 18, 1999. I am Florence Masebe and I am still here."
According to ZAlebs, the Muvhango actress also recalled how her four-year-old baby saw her lying in a pool of blood shortly after the attack. She said:
"She saw me in a pool of my own blood in our driveway on August 18th 1999. No four-year-old should see that."
