“I am not sick in my head to burn my own house”



Skeem Saam actress Innocent Sadiki, who is being accused of faking the fire that gutted her home over the weekend, said she is not moved by the negative comments on social media. Sadiki shared the news of losing her home on social media on Monday morning.

After sharing a video of her and her husband, Pastor Phindulo Sadiki, comforting each other outside their burnt house, the couple asked for donations as they had lost everything in the fire. The Sadikis said that they lost everything in the house, worth R2 million. Soon after they asked for donations, social media investigators started digging, found a picture of the house that appeared to be abandoned, and started accusing the pastor and his wife of burning their own house.

Speaking to ZiMoja, Sadiki says she is not moved by negative people and their opinions. She asked, “What kind of mother would put her kids in such a traumatic experience just to trend or to gain fame? I would never do that to my kids. What kind of monster would I be?” She said her stress at the moment is for her family to be fine. “I told my family members and friends who have been sending me all the negative screengrabs from social media to stop,” she added

According to the actress, the family is currently booked at a temporary accommodation to prepare the kids for school re-opening next week. She said she has been arranging therapy for her kids, who are still suffering from nightmares of watching their home burn to the ground. “I am stressed about my kids’ books, school uniforms, and getting them into therapy. People’s opinions won’t help me at this time,” she added. However, Sadiki, who plays Sthoko on Skeem Saam, said she has been grateful to people who have donated and sent messages of concern to her family. “To my followers, churches, businesspeople, and celebrities who have been helpful, we are grateful for your support,” she concluded.
