Buhle’s world turned upside down after she was kidnapped in her home village. The naïve young woman was on her way to a job interview and excited about the possibility of turning her grandmother and brother’s lives around. However, things didn’t go according to plan and she’s now found herself in Johannesburg with no idea of what the future holds for her.
Buhle got the shock of her life after being taken to a room that was filled with girls who had also been kidnapped. Things went from bad to worse after all the girls were taken away (to be sold) and she was left on her own.
“I want to know where I am,” she screamed while begging not to be left alone.
Bongani is playing mind games
Kalashnikov, who runs a sophisticated criminal network, is the man responsible for Buhle’s kidnapping. He arranged for her to be taken to a bedroom and later went to the room and introduced himself as Bongani. The big boss acted as if he was just an employee stuck in that house too. When Buhle begged him to help her, he said: “I wish I could do that. However, if I were to let you out of here, they’ll kill you. They’ll kill me too. Then they’ll kill my mother.”
When she suggested that they run away together, he told her: “These people are very dangerous. When I got a job here, I thought I would improve my family’s life. I thought I could support my family. But when I figured out what exactly happens here, and what they do to women like you, they began threatening me.”
That speech really fooled Buhle, and she completely believed his story.
Buhle is not for sale
He came back for the second time and brought her food. He told Buhle about how his “bosses” were keeping his mother hostage. When Bongani left the room, he knew that his story was working. When he got to the office, he told one of his men that he’s still grooming Buhle.
“I need her to be prepared,” he said. He was told that the buyers want to spend a lot of money on her. But he insisted that Buhle was now his.
“We’re no longer selling Buhle. You need to stop sharing her photo around. I won’t repeat myself, Buhle is mine.”
Do you think Kalashnikov will end up falling in love with her?
