Paulinah Ramosha (55) from South Africa is alive again, 11 years after being declared dead by her husband of 21 years who had also been abusing her.



"My husband 'killed' me in 2002 so he could claim life insurance," said Paulinah of Soshanguve, north of Tshwane.
 
"When I applied for a new ID, officials told me I was dead.
 
"I searched my husband's documents and discovered my death certificate."
 
"I am no longer angry with my husband for the things he did to me over the years. I learnt how to forgive him.
 
"Anger is not good for my recovery. I am focusing on getting better emotionally and physically.
 
"I am working on getting my sight and hearing back.
 
"Yes, I was trapped in that relationship, and I lost the best years of my life in an abusive marriage.
 
"But I am thankful that I came out alive.
 
"I am over the moon now. I can plan and rebuild my life without being told that I died many years ago.
 
"My son can now apply for an ID and will no longer have to rely on my family.
 
"Until now I could not apply for a disability grant, but now all that is in the past."
 
The centre's founder, Sandra Malebe-Thema, said: "We were moved by Paulinah's story when MMC Mabusela informed us about her troubles."
 
One priority in helping her to rebuild her life was fixing her ID.
 
"We achieved this and she has a certificate that says she is alive."
 
Malebe-Thema said the centre's staff have seen big changes in Paulinah emotionally and physically.
 
"Our resident doctors are attending daily to her medical needs," she said.
