Some of her twitter followers shared what their family members and they experienced at the same place.
“Thugs tried to kill my brother at Joburg CBD when he ran away with his bag. Fortunately he recovered and is fine now”, said a follower.
Another one said they robbed her R500 grocery money. She found out at the till when about to pay that money was gone.
“When at Joburg CBD, walk with confident and do not ask for directions from anyone except security guards. If people ask random people, they might be robbers and would take advantage of them. People should always be alert for security purposes”, said another follower.
