The only information Asavela had shared was that she was attacked and beaten with a gun while at her home in Lamontville with family.
According to the iLanga newspaper, it has been revealed that Asavela was attacked for her wedding ring. If you haven't been watching Isibaya for a while, Asavela who plays the role of Ntwenhle got married to her on-screen husband - Dabula (Chris Radebe) a few weeks ago.
The newspaper further stated that the thieves were in search of not only the wedding ring but also took money as well as Asavela's car.
Speaking to iLanga, Asavela revealed that the men broke into their home with a hammer that they used to break the door. The men barged into the house with AK 47 rifles and demanded to see Ntwenhle (seriously, they referred to her by her character's name? Lame.)
Asavela explained that she and her family were puzzled as she was standing right in front of them, but it was clear that they couldn't recognize her as she was wearing a different hairstyle.
Her car was found in eMlazi, and she obviously was not wearing the ring she wears on Isibaya as the ring falls under the prop equipment used for the show.
Asavela and her family are said to still be a bit shaken by the ordeal. We're just glad that she and the family are ok.
