A couple from England honeymooning in South Africa were recently carjacked while trying to get a glimpse of a local Cape Town township, Gugulethu. The newly wed husband had to bury his wife just days after getting married.
Apparently carjackings are the norm in places like Johannesburg and Durban, I often consider myself lucky to be in Cape Town. I have heard of carjacking/ kidnappings done to both my colleague and friend’s relatives in Durban and Joburg, but never Cape Town. Perhaps it is more common than I realize.
I cannot even imagine how this poor man is feeling and in the midst of such celebration and excitement for the future.

I consider myself extremely lucky and hope that I never have to endure such pain. Hopefully when I finally make it to Mzoli’s, a traditional braai restaurant in Gugulethu, I can have something positive to say about the area.
