Attacks On Nigerians In South Africa: Kidnapped Woman Actually Lied by ehispapa(m): 10:04am On Mar 27, 2018
TWO months ago, residents of Kagiso and Munsieville went on the rampage after a 30-year-old woman was allegedly kidnapped.

But on Friday the woman was arrested and charged with perjury after it emerged she was never kidnapped and had just gone to visit her boyfriend!

During the destructive protests in Munsieville and Kagiso, Mogale City, police stations and cars were vandalised by furious residents who claimed Nigerians were feeding young women drugs to turn them into prostitutes.

Krugersdorp police spokeswoman Sergeant Tshepiso Mashale said: “The 30-year-old previously alleged she had been kidnapped from the Krugersdorp CBD by unknown males.

“She alleged she was later dropped off in the Kagiso area and went to Kagiso Police Station for safety.”

Residents reacted angrily to news of the arrest. Vusi Mabunda (25) said he nearly lost his job after angry residents had blocked his car.

“The lives of police and motorists were on the line because there was nowhere to pass,” he said.

“Properties were burned, police stations and cars stoned and burned, shops looted, roads blocked, dozens of people injured and many arrested. How can someone just lie and cause so much chaos?

Mashale said the suspect would appear in Kagiso Magistrates Court on 11April.

She said Krugersdorp police wanted to remind residents that making a false statement under oath was a criminal offence.
