South African nurse brutalized for receiving a stolen car as a gift from her husband

According a report by an innocent South African nurse identified as Thembisile Ngozo has been severely beaten after a Toyota Yaris she received from her husband as a gift turned out to a stolen car.

Reports say that the woman always wished to have a car of her own and her wish came true after her husband gifted her with a second-hand Toyota Yaris as a gist but unfortunately the car was stolen and the owner had no mercy for her as he heavily descended on the nurse thinking she stole the car.

According to Ngozo who works as a private nurse, she and her husband saw an advert of the vehicle on a Facebook page of a car dealership known as Freeman Auto and decided to go and view it.

Upon seeing the car, the dealer asked them to pay a sum of 35,000 rands but they bargained with him and had it for 30,000 rands.

Unknown to Ngozo, the real owner of the car has been tracking the car so she drove to her workplace in Springs on the 15th of August, unaware of what fate had in store for her.

She opined “I heard a beeping sound from the driveway while I was still in my workplace. I knew the hooter was coming from my car so I went to investigate what was happening. I then saw a man and a lady seating in the car. When I asked them what they were doing in my car, they started beating me up. They pushed me to the ground and beat me up before driving off.”

The victim and her husband then contacted the dealership and spoke to Justin who told them not to report the case to the police but should rather come to him the following day.

“When I told him that the people who stole my car said it was theirs, he said I should not call the police and come to him the next day. I was puzzled,” she added.

Ngozo and her husband then went to the dealership the following day where they found the same Toyota Yaris parked in the yard. The man who beat her up was also there and Justin said she should pick another car.

“It was a misunderstanding that has now got my business in the middle. I got the car from a man who came to trade it off as his girlfriend’s car and I did not know that he sold me the car without consent because he gave me the papers of the car.” Justin said.

The real owner of the car identified as Mokgobodi said that she took her car to a mechanic in Alexandra.

“I gave the mechanic the car in August and when I went on a Monday five days later, he told me stories. So, I called my car tracker and they gave me the address where I went and I forcefully took it,” she said.

However, the police have commenced investigations on the theft and the assault on the woman.
