Skeem Saam actress Neo Ramitshana is fuming after an incident at a restaurant that left her shaken. The 33-year-old, who plays Botshelo, took to social media to detail how she was allegedly attacked by a bouncer at ‘Altitude Rooftop Restaurant and Bar’ in Pretoria on Women’s Day. Neo says she went to the restaurant because she was craving “wors and pap”. But the outing ended up being a nightmare.
I’m so disgusted, outraged and hurt! What a way to conclude one’s Women’s Day!” she wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. Neo says the drama started when she realised she left her takeaway bag and decided to head back inside the restaurant, but the bouncer allegedly refused to give her access
“As I turn around, I am then grabbed by a mountain of a man… Shouting “TAG”, I’m like; “I’m just going to fetch my food I’m leaving”. Then I proceed… He then grabs me by neck, strangling me to pull me so I don’t proceed. I’m then aggravated and shouting “WTF”, and he proceeds to slap me around!” she wrote.
Neo says she was then “manhandled by a number of other Altitude bouncers and stripped naked as a result of this altercation”. Guys, I’m visibly pregnant, I’m a woman, and not that it matters but WE WERE FLIPPEN CELEBRATING WOMEN’S FLIPPEN DAY!” she added.
The actress says she called for the manager, but he was not “helpful at all”. Another manager was called but he too allegedly dismissed her complaint.
“[He] comes to tell us to please stand aside as Mrs South Africa is coming. Dude I’ve just been assaulted by your staff and you tell me to step aside to so you can cater to more important people. So a pregnant woman has just been assault by your staff Altitude, and it’s business as usual. Neo says the cops arrived “millions of hours later” and took her statement.
