Cops used condoms to frame me: Mogale

2011-03-03 18:58

Johannesburg - Police officers could not have framed serial rape and murder accused Jack Mogale by taking a used condom from his house and placing it at various crime scenes, the South Gauteng High Court heard on Thursday.

Mogale had testified that on the night of his arrest, on March 27 2009, police must have taken a condom that he used with his wife, to later place at different crime scenes.

The State said Mogale was charged with more than 17 rapes and it would not make sense then that police would want to implicate him in only four cases where a positive DNA match was found.

State prosecutor Advocate Elaine Moonsamy referred to the sexual assault and murder of Nothembela Ntabisa on January 23 2009.

Mogale allegedly went to the Waterpan Caltex Garage and tried to lure home a prostitute called Noziko. When she refused, he allegedly lured Ntabisa, a fellow prostitute.

Moonsamy argued that not only was Ntabisa found less than a kilometre from Mogale's home, but there was also a used condom recovered at the scene with his DNA in it.

"This condom was received by the forensics lab on the 28 January 2009, before your arrest... this totally negates your police theory," Moonsamy told the court.

Mogale testified: "I have never slept with a person in the veld and never left a condom in the veld."

He faces more than 60 charges, including 19 counts of rape, 16 of murder and 18 of kidnapping, allegedly committed in Westonaria and Lenasia between 2008 and 2009.

The trial continues.

    You know whats the most rediculous thing here? With the state of our police system at the moment, his argument COULD actually be valid! Who knows - he might have looked at Cele funny once... On another note...spare a thought for these poor forensics people who have to "receive" the guy's used condom! Rough job right there! :P

    "police must have taken a condom that he used with his wife, to later place at different crime scenes." Good thinking there, Mr Mogale! They will never be able to prove anything now. You're home free! "This condom was received by the forensics lab on the 28 January 2009, before your arrest... this totally negates your police theory," Uh... erm, umm... Eish.

    He said the police could not "allow such comical acts to dampen society's confidence in police", because the country's police forces needed to lead by example.

    Nice one Jack! Just remember it’s not just your DNA on the condom, it’s the person you raped as well!

    hell don't you get rid of if after the majiga? or does this idiot collect all his used fl's or maybe he pulled it off after use and threw it on the floor in his dark room, it landed on the head of a tokoloche running around the room who could not get on the bed cause it was on bricks, the tokoloche decided to hand it to the police, now that would have forced them to throw out the case
