Man in court for raping 33 girls

2012-03-06 12:00

Johannesburg - A 40-year-old man accused of raping 33 girls appeared in the Alberton Magistrate's Court on Tuesday morning.

The case was stood down for later on Tuesday to give the man's wife time to arrange his legal representation.

The man cannot be identified until he has pleaded.

The lawyer expected to represent him told the court the accused had approached him but he did not want to represent him.

The man is accused of raping 33 girls between the ages of 10 and 14. He also faces 33 counts of attempted murder. He was arrested in Eden Park at the end of January after one of the girls followed him to his home and alerted the police.

The girls, from Gauteng's East Rand areas of Katlehong, Thokoza, and Vosloorus, were apparently lured into the veld and raped between 2007 and 2011.

During an earlier court appearance he said he was convicted for rape in 1997 and released from prison in 2005.

He attempted to speak to the court about the merits of the present charges against him but was told he would have to speak to an attorney.

Because of the seriousness of the matter the case will be moved to a high court at a later stage.

      Y is the wife even bothering to organise this dog a lawyer? He must be given 33 lives in prison. Not long ago, it was reported a father raped 1 daughter and was given life imprisonment.

      Agree. As a tax payer, refuse to pay a single cent and sent this guy straight to jail forever

    Would be interesting to see if he gets life (MXit rapist) or 30 years (Jacobus Eksteen)...tighten the noose and kick the chair. Line all three of them up and do it one by one.

    Ruining young children's lives... They will never be the same again.

    Remember the good old days when serial rapist/killers made headlines all around the world ?? Today it seems like a common practise, especially in South Africa !! Please remove them from society. This "earlier convicted" man is not supposed to walk the streets, and 33 rapes cou;ld have been avoided.

      remember the good old days when there were only 2 billion people?

    Well done to the girl that followed him home. She saved a lot of other girls the same fate. But if I was his wife I wouldn't bother arranging legal representation.

      Susan - 2012-03-06 14:29

      I bet she's going to stand by him...

  • Kusleg - 2012-03-06 12:20

    The police must also cross check the age of the wife, she might also be within that age group. This scumbag likes banging young ones now he must rot in jail. 33 life sentences would be nice for him.

  • Thokozane - 2012-03-06 12:28

    I hope he never walks our streets ever again.

  • J-Man - 2012-03-06 12:30

    Big respect to the girl who followed him home which led to his arrest. That must have taken more courage than all of us will ever understand. She has probably saved 33 more girls from being raped like that.

    One bullet - one rapist

  • Ashley - 2012-03-06 12:52

    Oh Justice system, what have you learnt from this? the man was in prison and released for the same charges. don't release these pigs. they will commit the same crime again!

  • RealNikka - 2012-03-06 13:01

    I suggest as South Africans we open a fund and bail him from prison...Cut his penis and Balls ...and call 911, and make sure he doesnt die.. Then we also pay about 33 prisoners in prison to gang rape him then they can kill him after wards or whatever..who is in??

  • Rohin - 2012-03-06 13:03

    this f&*C!@ should be a candidate for lethal injection or public hanging.

  • Kagiso - 2012-03-06 13:08

    chop off his d***, and sentence him to death.

  • Samukelisiwe Tana Shelembe - 2012-03-06 13:12

    now this what most define as a wife, supportin ur hubby no matter what. this guy shud get a life sentence 4 every girl he raped since they don't want 2 return the death penalty!

  • arthurbrigg - 2012-03-06 13:20

    Drop him in a vat of acid and leave him there until there's NOTHING left of him. His bones don't even deserve to grace this planet.

  • Snoopy.zn - 2012-03-06 13:24

    Can't REHABILITATE CRIMINALS!!!! Not for stealing, and definitely not murderers and rapists!

  • Tony - 2012-03-06 13:27

    This would be good news if it wasn't for the fact that some cake hole in Corrections will free him by mistake, or the investigating officer will bungle the evidence or ...heaven forbid... The rapist gets sick and is parolled to a golf course. I agree with the comments here .. Castrate the guy.

  • Cristina - 2012-03-06 13:33

    I feel sick..!! Filthy bastard!!!!

  • TheJaydedKing - 2012-03-06 13:39

  • MduXman - 2012-03-06 14:18

  • Susan - 2012-03-06 14:27

  • Patti - 2012-03-06 15:05
