A local lady had Twitter crying after sharing the heart-wrenching story of a terrible encounter she went through. She explained that on Sunday, 13 June, she went to a grocery store and was responding to a few messages while still seated in the comfort of her vehicle.
Before she knew it, a man opened her backseat door. Thinking it was a mistake, she turned around and once she locked eyes with the individual, she knew something was wrong. She attempted to escape from her door but another person had used his weight to keep her in the car.
She was then hit on the head with a gun and told to drive. She was forced to pick up two other men while driving. She pleaded with them for her life and offered everything she had, but this fell on deaf ears.
Another vehicle arrived to pick up all her bank cards and she was informed to continuously increase her card limits. If the limits were blocked, the men swiped her cards instead. Thinking her life was over, she fought. With all the commotion, she managed to open the car door and run into oncoming traffic.

She turned around and noticed that her assailants were running into a nearby bush so she ran back to her car:
"To cut the story I ran & sped off back home. My loved ones helped me. There is a piece of me that died that day. I don’t trust myself, I am triggered and on edge. God decided that it wasn’t my day. But I feel that I lost a part of me and every other day it hits me. It hurts."

"This is heartbreaking. Experience housebreaking and tied with kids. They took everything and use my bakkie to load. It's a year ago but trauma doesn't go away. Every day I think of more security measures for my home. It's really scary."
"These people work with car guards. They actually watch you by the parking entrance and always target females who are driving alone. I'm so sorry, you didn't fail yourself."
"Askies sisi, I can't even begin to imagine what you must be going though. I've been shot at and abused by criminals and police so many times but I keep moving even though it's not easy. You are not alone."
@kanzeni responded with:
"Sorry dear. I can relate to your story. 28th December 2020 is the day I so wish to forget. I hope you find much strength to deal with this ordeal. May Heavens help and protect us all."

"I know exactly how you feel. I went through the same experience in May this year."
"Reading this made my heart sink. I am so sorry you ever had to experience something like this. You never deserved this and it was not your fault at all. You hadn't failed yourself. You did what you could in the moment and with those decisions. You saved Yourself."
