Booysen accused bail hearing

The two men who were arrested for the rape and murder of Anene Booysen are expected to appear in court. See all the pictures from Bredasdorp.

Bredasdorp - Despite her numerous injuries, Anene Booysen tried to walk, the investigating officer in her rape and murder case told the Bredasdorp Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. 

The police officer said the security guard who found Booysen revealed that the 17-year-old tried to walk.

He also said paramedics in the ambulance tried to stabilise her and doctors struggled to “put her insides back in”.

Booysen was found on Saturday 2 February gang-raped and disembowelled at a construction site not far from her home.

Blood and semen was found on some pieces of evidence, the policeman told the court.


Jonathan Davids, 22, and Johannes Kana, 21, stand accused of raping and murdering Booysen.

Prosecutor Maria Marshall put it to Davids that a witness saw him making a nuisance of himself on Friday 1 February.

The witness said Booysen told Davids to leave her alone.

Before she died in hospital, Marshall said the teenager told hospital staff that "Zwaai" and six other men were responsible for her injuries.

Davids's nickname is "Zwaai".

Davids denied the account and said he and Booysen merely greeted each other.

He also said he knew of another "Zwaai", who lived in Zwelitsha.

"I heard he's a gangster, a 28 [gang member]," Davids said.

He could not say if Booysen had known this man.

The court heard that Davids gave his clothing to the police for forensic testing after he was arrested.
