[LISTEN] Fight for education: Why I resisted armed robbers

A hard drive containing a draft of her master's thesis gave Noxolo Ntuli the courage to fight off three armed men who tried to rob her on Monday.

JOHANNESBURG – University of Johannesburg master's student Noxolo Ntuli says she fought off robbers in Auckland Park to save her thesis.

A hard drive containing a draft of her master's thesis gave Ntuli the courage to fight off three armed men who tried to rob her on Monday.

“As soon as they pulled up next to me I thought about all of the admin I would have to go through; everything from house keys to going to the banks to block and change cards, licensing department and all of my work on my hard drive so I could not let go.”

The three men caught on CCTV footage have been arrested.
