Diep City actress Nash Pilingane recently took to her Facebook account to share an ordeal she experienced in Cape Town.
According to Daily Sun, the actress revealed that she was held at gunpoint. This was after she requested a ride from The Milk restaurant in Khayelitsha.
Nash wrote “Dear friends of mine. I write this with tears streaming down my face after nearly dying this past Saturday on the R300 in Cape Town.
We requested from the Milk restaurant based in Khayelitsha with my cousins and a friend, Guys we were meant to get picked up by a friend from the park when we asked him to drop us off”
The actress who plays Eve in the now-canceled Mzansi Magic telenovela Diep City claimed that the man took their belongings.
“Then he blatantly refused to drop us off and secondly he refused for me to take a weez in Khayelitsha just for him to stop at R300 and within a space of second, we were held at gunpoint. They took everything of ours and not his car.”
She then requested prayers, explaining that her year has not been going well. “I need prayers my friends because just this year, my phones were taken the same way. There is always a weapon involved and I don’t know what it’s going to take for all this to stop”
In 2019, TV actress Masechaba Khumalo also took to her Facebook account to share that she was held at gunpoint by robbers.
“In the early hours of yesterday morning, 5 armed men with balaclavas broke into my home. They pulled me out of my bed at gunpoint. My 11-year-old son was sleeping next to me.
They then led me down the passage, checking every room to see who else was in the house. My 6 old son was asleep with his nanny in one of the bedrooms. My children’s nanny and I were led back to the main bedroom. We were forced to lay on our stomach, then tied up with cable ties with our hands behind our back and held hostage for over an hour while our home was ransacked.
At one point, they didn’t know what to do with us. They argued amongst themselves but by Gods grace, they took a decision to leave us unharmed.”
The actress said no one was seriously hurt during the incident.
“They fled in my vehicle and with the assistance of my 11-year-old, we were able to get help from my neighbor, Nina Maritz, and her son Michael, who cut our cable ties and called for help.
My family and I experienced what many South Africans go through on a daily basis. Many don’t make it out alive. Sending a prayer to anyone out there who has had a similar experience. My heart goes out to you.
A big shout out to SAPS who acted swiftly and with care. My car was recovered in Alex, after a police chase, approximately 30 minutes after the call out, with most of the contents still inside. The assailants fled on foot and are still at large.”
