“I always believe that when you have a loaf of bread,one could always be able to share just a little with someone else. If you have 1000 surely even a R5 would be worth something to someone. I was due to be in London UK by Wednesday for the Mandela concert however couldnt make it because tuesday night just as i drove by Spar in my area i reached out to give “job seekers” some money instead they reached out grabbed my arm and stabbed me, tried to open my door, with the intent to cause more boldy harm. Its very sad that ones humility and humanitarian beliefs are welcomed in this manner. Bu phelelephi ubuntu. ie;mandela tour now postponed for october”

Zahara managed to drive off with the door wide open and said it was the scariest incident she had ever experienced.

“I’ve never been so frightened in my life. I was so scared. It was horrible. I kept wondering why this would happen. I am the type of person who if they have two slices of bread, why can’t I share? I don’t know if I can do that (give back so freely) anymore.”
