However, on Wednesday, Ngxolo opened up about the hardships she had been experiencing as a female farmer in the village. She shared that people from the area have been “looting”, not only hundreds of her livestock but also her pets.

“Over the past three years, I have lost hundreds of livestock…

“Our Kraals are running empty because livestock theft and village crime is going unnoticed…

“Goodness gracious, they [are] even stealing my dogs and cats!!!!!!!

“What is this looting mentality that has entered the lives of our people?” she continued.

The new mom added that at another time, the thieves had even come to her with sticks, demanding to take what was of her livestock.

“NO gender should bully and steal from another,” Ngxoli added.

After seeing the actress’ post, her fans and followers were concerned for her safety.

Other female farmers who commented shared their own experiences about the looting of livestock and bullying of female farmers.
