61-year-old Nonzwakazi Mthembu told dailysun.co.za that on the night of the incident, she somehow couldn't sleep.

A voice in her head told her to get her frying pan from the kitchen and put it under her blanket. True to her fears, she heard someone sneaking into her home.

Instead of screaming, she waited silently and hit the would-be robber on his head with the pan. This probably took him by surprise because he immediately took off.

Gogo Mthembu gave chase but the burglar got away. She thanked God and her ancestors for giving her the bravery to fight the man off.

Neighbours confirmed that Gogo Mthembu woke them up and that the frying pan was still in her hand when they came out. She won't open a case because nothing was taken.
