“If I Wasn’t Out Boozing I’d Have Been Dead!” Woman Claims After Her Ex-Lover Petrol Bombs Her Shack
A South African woman escaped death by a whisker after her ex-boyfriend petrol-bombed her shack whilst she was out drinking beer.
Asandiswa Jalajala’s (33) found herself homeless after her shack in Khayamandi, Stellenbosch, was petrol- bombed at midnight on Friday.
Speaking during an interview with The Daily Sun, Asandiswa was thankful over the night out with her friends which served her.
Asandiswa revealed that prior to this incident, her jealous lover had threatened to burn and kill her on Facebook. Posting on Facebook he wrote;
“Zamtshisa nendlu uzova nyan.”
This translates to: “I will burn her in her shack and you’ll hear about it.”
Asandiswa revealed that on the night her shack was petrol bombed someone saw him there. Reports from neighbours said that he came by her shack and knocked and after getting no response, he believed she was with someone.
She only got to find out about the fire after neighbours called her to rush home.
Asandiswa who lost everything from the incident was only left with clothes she had on.
Judging by the way her shack was burnt down, she believes he used paraffin or petrol. She added that he probably wanted to make sure that she died in that inferno.
After the incident, the boyfriend denied that it was him. In an effort to distance himself from the crime, he wrote on Facebook that he’s not the one who burnt the shack.
“Friends zam ningathuki xa bona gama lam libizwa kakubi. Kodwa mna andenzanganto. Zange ndatshisa hoki tuu,” he wrote.
This means: “My friends, don’t be shocked when you see my name being dragged in the mud. I didn’t do anything. I didn’t burn the shack.”
Social media users, however, reminded him he’d promised to burn the shack earlier.
Meanwhile, Asandiswa has since opened an arson case against her ex-boyfriend. She has also applied for a protection order against him.
