She Was Hijacked and Kidnapped After Posting Her New Car On Facebook


In this brave new world everything is shared on social media. Every experience and every accomplishment is put in plain sight for everyone to see. People check in at hotels, airports and this could be a danger to your life and the lives of your loved ones. The people on your Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram  account  aren’t really your friends, hence you shouldn’t naively share your personal life on social networks.

A woman who bought a new car (Audi A3 35 TFSI) and posted pictures of this new car earlier on social media, and now she’s been hijacked and abducted as well.

The woman has been identified as Jabulile from kwa Thema in Springs. Her registration number is KF 16 BN GP.

People are now saying it was stolen because she shared pictures of it on social media while others believe it has nothing to do with social media because it could’ve been family and friends as well.

Personally I think people who live in unsafe locations and townships should stop posting their possessions on social media as this causes a lot of attention from many  people.

Luckily, Jabulile’s cousin, “C-hle Malebo Kambule” says Jabulile has been found, but the criminals and the stolen car are still at large.

It is a total shame that someone can work with their blood, sweat and tears to buy something and someone else can just come and take it. The worst part is that this car is still brand new and the owner just lost it like that.

The South African Police Services (SAPS) should have police vans patrol locations and townships like they do suburbs, as they are also crime stricken.

If there’s one thing to learn here, is to live a private life because the people on your social media are always watching your every move.
