Simphiwe Mtimande

A Johannesburg woman had social media users concerned after sharing via a Facebook status update that she'd been hijacked and stuffed in the boot of her own vehicle. Simphiwe Mtimande was allegedly taken somewhere near Johannesburg's Mall of the South. 

orrifically, the young woman even shared that her hijackers stopped to quarrel about who might have their way with her and that her only means of protection was a pair of scissors she carried in her trunk.

Soon, enough Mzansi social media users were up in arms trying to locate the young woman with the hashtag #FindSimphiwe. Local celebs like @jessicankosi and @lasizwe even got behind the movement in what appeared a desperate attempt to find Mtimande.

 "South Africa, Simphiwe has been hijacked. Can we raise awareness until she is found. #FindSimphiwe" wrote Lasiwe. 

The situation regarding Simphiwe's safety still remains unclear but the kidnap victim has shared a short clip on social media letting her followers know she's safe

Apparently, Simphiwe Mtimande was never missing was just a prank
