CAPE TOWN: Pretending to be dead is the reason a Samora Machel woman who said she was kidnapped and throttled in bushes 3km from her home is still alive.
The 24-year-old was allegedly kidnapped by two men on Saturday night after she had gone out with them and her friends and asked them to drop her at home.

But the men had other plans for her. Angry and traumatised, the woman, whose name is being withheld as she fears further victimisation, yesterday took the Cape Times to the scene where she fought for her life.

“I was walking home, coming back from visiting my sister. I wanted her to know I was in town for a few days. Then I saw my friends whom I haven’t seen in a while, with two men in a car.”
