eHostela actress Thandeka Zulu was saved by the airport’s security guards from receiving a beating of her life. The actress who plays the role of Nelly on eHostela had her name dragged down the mud after she became a show of town at OR Tambo International Airport.
Apparently, the actress was accused of defrauding a group of people through a forex scheme. Thandeka was travelling from Durban to Johanessburg and when she got to the airport she was approached by an angry mob.
The mob demanded their money from her after they lost thousands of rands in a forex scam. The mob went on shouting and calling the actress a fraudster. “She was at the airport minding her own business when she encountered a group of angry people who got so close to her that they started touching her arms and shoulders, leaving her frightened,” said a source.
It was later discovered the fraudsters used her face to advertise their scam and she had nothing to do with it. Speaking to Sunday World about the ordeal Thandeka said she was uncomfortable discussing the terrible incident.
“I don’t want to talk about this ordeal, by doing that I will be giving these criminals prominence and relevance at the expense of my name. I don’t want to ruin my brand. I am not a trader; I was never,” she said.
