Content creator and YouTuber Mihlali Ndamase has shared a traumatic experience she had with a man who almost shot her. The beautician had a strange yet agonizing encounter with a man who kept staring at her till she felt uncomfortable. When she asked him why was he staring at her, he went off!

Such occurrences are common with women and for Mihlali Ndamase she was left shaken by it. It is not a secret that Mihlali is a very beautiful woman and sometimes it can get hard not to stare at the amazing beauty, however, she feels very uncomfortable when such happens as this incident is not the first.

On social media, she would often talk about how awkward it is when people stare so it is no surprise that she finally gained the courage to ask a strange man why was he staring.


“A guy just threatened to shoot me at a garage because I asked what he’s looking at. How do you walk up to me in a store aisle, stand & stare then get upset when asked what’s up. I was so scared, because he had his hand in his pants so he actually could’ve done it.

“Imagine threatening to kill someone at a garage in broad daylight. I’m still low-key shaken, the whole time I was standing there thinking he’d actually get away with it…Cherry on top, nobody said anything,” she said.

She continued by saying, “This man was screaming at me swearing guys, swearing like I did something to him because I asked what he’s looking at. Even the petrol attendants outside asked him what’s wrong when he walked out. Hayi I can’t believe it”

Even after lamenting her traumatic ordeal, the nasty comments kept flooding in and she quickly told trolls where to get off, “Also what we not gonna do is discuss indlela endibuze ngayo ( the way I asked him) men are so entitled. Nothing makes threatening someone okay. Don’t annoy me please, already ndinaar.”

Gender-Based Violence in the country is rife and climbing at an alarming rate. The violence against women and children has been an on-going crisis, especially in South Africa.


According to the minister of police, Bheki Cele, during the first week of lockdown, they have recorded 87,000 cases of gender-based violence. These figures were alarming even for a country that is leading in terms of femicide rates.

Mzansi celebs all over the country have lent their voices towards the cause. Black Coffee even organized a march in Soweto calling on men to put a stop to the violence.
