“We were on this cattle truck and these men came on another truck with a lot of guns. [They pulled up] with the big guns and they were like, ‘Yeah, you’ve got to get off your truck. ”

Wilson then explained she and the other women were taken “to a house in the middle of nowhere” and stayed there until the next morning.

She continued: “Luckily we weren’t harmed and then, the next day, they came and said, ‘Your truck is ready now. You can go.’ We didn’t ask any questions. We just got back on that truck and got out of there and crossed the South African border a few hours later.”

Wilson called herself the “team leader” among the other women, and said the believed the men used the cattle truck “to smuggle illegal things”. She added: “I feel like I was very good in the crisis.”
