She said the thug who was wearing a mask had a Zimbabwean accent.
Zolani sent us a photo of one of the alleged criminals, saying it was him who wasn’t wearing a mask.
She said that when they were in the room, they fired a shot.
“I think they wanted to show us it was original gun. This was the first time something like this had happened to me,” said Zolani, who has lived in Setjwetla for 21 years.
