Neville Pillay’s daughter speaks out
Pillay’s daughter eighteen-year-old Jordan, took to social media to give her side of the allegations levelled against her mother and herself. Commenting on one of her father’s subsequent posts she said, “So… my mom told you to leave because you wanted drugs.. so thats abuse? Haha okay then”
Jordan also hinted that she has never been able to speak out but now vows to reveal what went on the past few turbulent years as a family.
“We have been trying for so many years to help him but he doesn’t want to accept it and it’s really sad to see things end up like this. I was never really able to speak up about it because I was a minor and tried to protect my identity but I’m 18 now and I think it’s finally time to speak up about it.”
She also explained the incident that led to him being kicked out of their home that night, “Everything was fine until he started fighting with my mom over weed. He provoked her, he said you can either let me stay here quietly and smoke my weed and I’ll pay the rent or I can take my money, find my own place and do it there. Willing to drop all of us just so he can smoke it’s really unfair and it’s been happening for so long now. All we did was tell him to leave because he was fighting with us but he threatened to tell everybody that we abuse him.. look at his old posts there’s a Live video on his Facebook if you scroll down, my mom and my dad speak about the abuse he put us through.”
On Friday 2 October Neville Pillay took to social media issuing a statement saying, “OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Thank you for the overwhelming support to my story. I’ve finally been given access to some clothes , medications and other equipment I need. My aim is not to punish my abuser or make them pay. My lawyer will handle all communication and carve a way forward. I just want to rest and gather myself . I will be in touch with everyone offering help . Contact me on WhatsApp cia my cell number if you can assist in any way . From this new beginnings arise and my purpose in life has been set clear . I stand for all abused men. Don’t be ashamed . You’re only someone’s child. Stay strong and thank you for your love”
Responding to the abuse that her mother and herself has endured over the past few days, Jordan commented,
With all due respect I love my dad. But I am even more mature enough to state facts, old enough to see right from wrong so if you don’t fully understand the situation I honestly don’t think you have the right to call my mom an abuser, I can send you some links to articles about my dads abuse over the years.
Karol states that the past few days have been a mental strain after the abuse she has experienced on social media after Neville Pillay distorted the reality of the situation. Karol and her daughter intend seeking protection from the authorities against Neville Pillay.
