Nontulikazi Nxumalo regrets giving a mum and her son a helping hand. The 54-year-old, who plays a leading role in e.tv soapie Rhythm City, said it all started when a Facebook friend died in February.
She said in the months before her friend Dante Vries died, he told her about his girlfriend and said he’d like them to meet.
“I never met Dante, but our friendship was great. We spoke about everything and he was like a brother to me,” she said.
Nontulikazi said Dante paid rent for this woman and her 25-year-old son, but they were evicted when he died.
“I didn’t hesitate to let them move into my restaurant, which was temporarily closed in March.”
The woman wouldn’t say much about her family and claimed they were all dead.
She said when she told the woman to start looking for a job and
accommodation, she told her she was sick and couldn’t work.
“In June I told her to please get a place because the restaurant was supposed to be a temporary solution,” she said.
Nontulikazi said when they wouldn’t leave she called the cops, but they said there was nothing they could do because she’d allowed the woman and her son to move in.
“No one is able to help them and their story of not having family isn’t adding up.
They also don’t have IDs,” she said.
Nontulikazi said she was starting to wonder whether Dante was a real person or if this woman catfished her.
The woman, Olivia Langeveldt (49), said she was abandoned by her mum when she was three months old and her foster parents died when she was two.
She said Dante took her in and paid her rent before he moved to the UK. Asked when she’d leave, she said she didn’t know.
Police spokesman Captain Mavela Masondo said it was illegal to evict people because of lockdown regulations. He advised Nontulikazi to find them space at a shelter as she could approach police again.
