A South African Twitter user with the handle @Nomathenda took to her page yesterday to lament that her neighbor raped her.
The young woman, identified as Happiness, claims she was raped on Saturday evening, and she reported the incident to South African police Sunday morning.
According to her, the alleged rapist ran away as the police took so much time to come to her house to obtain statement.
Below are some of her tweets:
“My neighbor raped me last night… I really wanna die right now. Asked him to walk me home coz I wanted to be safe I trusted him.. Wen we got next to my gate things changed next thing I’m on the floor next thing his strangling me im on the floor “fustk thula uyarasa” he said….i trusted him.”
“I honestly nvr thought such wud happen to me especially with some1 soo close toe ladies pls buy pepper spray n Carry it with you all the time these dogs strike at anytime.” she tweeted.”
Her first tweet has been retweeted more than 8,000 times since yesterday. Below is the link to her first tweet.
