It has been five months since actor Dumi Masilela was shot
and killed in an attempted hijacking in Tembisa. Now his widow, Simphiwe Ngema,
has opened up to True Love magazine about the days surrounding his tragic
death. The actress said she thought Dumi knew he was going to die soon. “Dumi
died on Wednesday and I think he knew he was going to die.”
“We were sitting in our room and he said to me, ‘Babe we’ve
been through so much but we’ve kept our relationship’,” she told the
publication. Sim also stated Dumi started acting strange and became moody and
that’s when she felt that something was wrong with her husband. “He stopped
talking to me which was weird, but when we’d go to bed, he’d hold me tightly.
When I asked what was wrong he didn’t give me an answer.”
When the former Rhythm City star tried to flee, a car chase ensued
and one of the hijacker opened fire and shot Dumi. He was rushed to Tembisa
hospital where he eventually lost his life.
