Mercy Pakela Details Her Near-Rape Experience

As South Africa embarks on its 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign, veteran pop singer Mercy Pakela broke her silence on her near gang-rape experience.

This week, the “Ayashisa Amateki” hitmaker, took to social media to unveil the details of how she nearly got raped but, thankfully, through a tip-off from a good Samaritan, she was able to escape before the incident could occur.

In a Facebook post, the music legend explained how a fellow female musician orchestrated a plan to have her gang-raped at an event, nearly three decades prior.

The muso also took an opportunity to thank former a journalist and writer, Sandile Memela, for saving her life.

She wrote: “Sandile Memela, the day you save my life, when one of my fellow musicians, was sending boys to attack.

“It was at a party if I’m not mistaken, it was at Colored Pasmo at a farm.

She continued: “You called me on the side and told me to leave the place immediately, someone was planning a gang rape on me. You even took me to my car and acted as if you were interviewing me. I thank you while you are still alive.”

In response to Pakela’s post, Memela’s responded in a heartfelt poetic message on his time, he wrote: “If I can stop one man from breaking yet another woman’s heart, tearing her lower lips, semen, and blood on her thighs, searing her soul for life.
