She was involved in a car crash the night before.


“We were on our way to offer our services to clients when our taxi crashed,” she said.

“The broken glass cut my arm so deeply I could see the bone. I was taken to hospital and got stitches.”

After spending a night at Sebokeng Hospital in the Vaal, she was back on the streets.

“I’m forced to come here and earn a living. I want to quit but I need the money.”

She came back after 45 minutes.
