A picture of a woman that was posted on Facebook by a local driver on Sunday (19/02) is supposedly of the well-known ghost that is rumoured to have made appearances between ­Warrenton and Kimberley.

She is allegedly responsible for beating people who do not give her a lift to Jan Kempdorp.

It is not clear whether she attacks the driver who stops or whether she just makes a miraculous appearance inside people’s cars.

Others say that after giving her a lift, she would just wait for the driver to arrive at a certain spot on the road before pointing with her finger out of the sealed windscreen and saying: “This is where I died.”

The rest is everyone’s opinion as to what happens to the drivers at that moment.

The post left many doubts as to whether it is safe to drive on the road at night.

Some only dismiss the claims of the ghost’s existence by saying that it is an old post.

The post by Henry Mkuchane became alive with comments on whether the ghost exists or not.

“I heard about this story when I was a laaitie, but it has not found rest yet,” read one comment.

“I have seen her too.”

“Lmao . . . not you too,” read another one in response.

The debate was about how the ghost waited for a picture to be taken of it and about why the angle of the picture makes it seem as though the picture had been taken from the right side of the road.

“Then you took a picture, brave heh . . . Lmao, there was never such . . . and we keep left.”

One post read: “Yes, the picture has been there for years, but the story of the lady there at the crossing is the truth. That is why government built a road there to help a lot of people against this woman.”

Mkuchane just laughed it off when contacted about the return of the N12 ghost.
