Radio host, Masechaba Ndlovu recently reflected on her 2019 and shared how grateful she feels to have survived it.
Although she had many highs, the presenter also went through a traumatic experience when her home was invaded by five men in July.
In a recent Instagram post, Masechaba explained that the break-in was something she will take time to heal from and that the whole experience changed her outlook on life.
“2019 has been a very challenging year, very challenging…” she began.
“I was robbed twice, I survived a home invasion, where 5 gunmen broke into my home, into this very room, tied me and my kids’ nanny up with cable ties, put us on our stomachs and ransacked our home for over an hour. It was absolute torture.
“I didn’t know how it was going to end, but by God’s grace and with the help of really amazing neighbours and my very brave son, my 11-year-old, we were able to call for help and fortunately no one was harmed,” she said.
The radio host went on to speak about how the robberies affected her and how she has managed to heal.
“As much as I was open about my experience, I don’t think I’ve ever opened up about the pain and how I have overcome to be the person that I am today in 2020.”
She then went on to promote a new app in partnership with My Personal Lifeline which she says will provide woman with help should they fall victim to a crime.

In a recent interview with DRUM following her robbery last year, Masechaba shared how she felt during that terrifying incident.
"I have never come so close to my death. All I could think about was my children and staying alive. I didn’t care what they did to me, I did not care about what they were going to do to me, I just wanted to be alive, so I stayed calm and I was respectful in my tone.”
She also opened up about how she feels towards the men who invaded her home.
“I am handling it better than I could have imagined. It was pure hell, but I am mentally and spiritually strong. I don’t feel anger but a sense of gratitude that these men did not take our lives”. She said.
