Just two days after Police minister Nathi Mthethwa told the World that murder and car hijackings were down in South Africa, a Mazda ridge followed me and my wife home. Fortunately for me I saw them and tried to drive defensively with the hope to show them that I am aware they were following me. When I turned into my streets they did not have enough time to maeup their minds then they kept on Driving. I was relieved thinking that was it, I also thiught maybe I was just paranoid like most South Africans, but the guys came from another street. Maybe they thought I saw them initialy now they wanted to surprise me. unfortunately for them I was already on my drive way they turned and drove away very quickly.
What concerns me the most is that this is the second time this happens to me. The first time I did not see the car following me but my wife did. As I stopped at my driveway they drove passed me and that was when I realised they were all guys packed in a white Nissan skyline. After they had passed they acted strangely as they seemed to be lost and ended up making a U turn I reversed quickly into my driveway as they passed slowly in front of me not even looking at me to avoid being identified.
One never think of dying at their gate until last weekend I had a feeling that someone is doing some surveillance on me. Most South African are paranoid and paranoia got to me this time I could not sleep the whole night thinking they might come. What scared me the most is that my wife comes home late on Friday’s. I have a strong belief that our neighbourhood is one of the quietest neighbourhoods not rich but just the working class,
