Man linked to 100 rapes arrested in Limpopo

2012-02-19 22:19

Johannesburg - Limpopo's worst serial rapist may have been arrested, police said on Sunday.

The 32-year-old father of two was arrested on Friday in Phakgameng, near Modimolle, after DNA profiling linked him to four rape cases, said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

He appeared briefly in court on Friday, but was not asked to plead, he said.

Mulaudzi said the man could be linked to as many as 100 cases and had been under investigation since October, when he was arrested for raping a 17-year-old girl.

The case was withdrawn because of insufficient evidence, but DNA results connected the man to four other cases, said Mulaudzi.

He said the rapist would follow women from work or from shebeens, grab them from behind, rape them at knifepoint in the veld and steal their cellphones and other valuables.

He had been active in Modimolle since 2009.

The man would appear again in the Modimolle Magistrate's Court next Monday.

    Damn... did it take them that long to catch him? You dont rape 100 girls over a weekend.

      Sharon - 2012-02-20 08:04

      That is 100 rapes over 3 years, 33 a year, almost 3 a month! Hats off for his arrest, question is, why did it take so long?

      Either Limpopo police force is totally inept or this is one smooth criminal. I hope he gets no bail.

  • cameronjohnprice - 2012-02-19 22:38

    100 rapes - that should at least get the death penalty... but we dont have one. Oh well, give him a couple of years in jail and set him free to do it all over again - I am sure this guy is past the rehabilitation stage.

      Thando - 2012-02-20 06:57

      WEll jail is not enough - think of all the hurt he has caused. Only death penalty will do in this case

      Sean - 2012-02-20 07:30

      You know what I find is funny, that some people have given you the thumbs down for your comments? MMhh, so in their view, its OK to rape 100 woman, but heaven forbid you give the culprit a death sentence, oh no we can't have that can we.You see, it's only funny for these idiots until their daughter, heck, even their sin, gets raped, then they will sing a different tune. Personally, any capital crime deserves the death sentence, so we can also throw in arson, grand theft auto, paedophiles, murder, animal cruelty etc etc etc. While this may not always deter people from doing these crimes, it will at the very least set a precident for others who may be thinking about it. Oh forgot to add, this chop will still have voting rights while in jail, nice one

      This guy is a Sunday school teacher when you compare it to how many times South Afric has been raped by our incompetant government's corruption!

  • Reinier - 2012-02-19 22:42

    Die man met die bioniese heup !!!

  • billidp - 2012-02-19 22:48

    Must be something inthe water in Modimolle...

  • Consolata Connie Lodya - 2012-02-19 22:54

    I'm starting to lose what little hope I had in the morals people might possess and in the goverment for not having tougher laws to discourage there creatures. Hopefully his sentence will be that he gets raped by a 100 men a day for 100 days. Sick f*** has ruined a 100 precious lives. Please take his children away from him, maybe they too have been hurt by him before.

  • Mohammed Afzal Jhetam - 2012-02-19 22:58

    If there is clear evidence that his a rapist.... Cut his balls off

  • Sylvia - 2012-02-19 23:03

    Is there any good news coming out of Limpopo?

      Arvin - 2012-02-19 23:30

      The only one is that the DA won the local election. Some reloef but not a great deal.

      Schmee - 2012-02-20 07:27

      Limpopo is fast getting a bad name.

    Finaly.... South African Casanova behind the bars. 100 rapes?...which country can beat this reccord? Only in South Africa. "...grab them from behind, rape them at knifepoint in the veld and steal their cellphones and other valuables...." With one hand only !!!! Kill that sick bast*** I wish that 41 year old police rookie was on that scene, not killing the 16 year boy.

      George - 2012-02-20 09:46

      John the next thing we will hear is that this were no rape. It was all consensual sex. Welcome to our beloved country.

  • Carel de Lange - 2012-02-20 00:49

  • Dale Hyland - 2012-02-20 07:01

      George - 2012-02-20 09:49

      Polly are we in a scramble here because i am surely not the only one not understanding the comment. What were you thinking whilst you were making such a silly comment.

      Yolokazi Lethabo Langeni - 2012-02-20 10:35

      Dafuq?? O_o

  • Dave - 2012-02-20 07:37

    The fact that he is linked to 100 rapes is indicitive of the efficiency of our police force. Probably 100 that they know about. How many of these guys are there doing this.

  • ray.cornelissen - 2012-02-20 08:14

    Once again - Proof: Our justice system is not doing anybody ANY justice. He'll be back in the streets raping and robbing innocent young women pretty soon.

  • ludlowdj - 2012-02-20 08:43

    The true face of the "noble" african, isn't the world just so happy they gave them rights.

      John - 2012-02-20 09:01

      I know many african people that are not like this scum. Me as mulungu...I'll dissagree with this statement.

  • Shaun Robinson - 2012-02-20 08:44

    Tie his hands above his head, grate his penis just until it's red and raw and leave it hanging in a mixture of salt water and Staaldruppels.

      John - 2012-02-20 08:57

      Shaun...you got my vote for the "Staaldruppels" This is epic. I haven't laugh that much lately.....can't stop here

  • snylo - 2012-02-20 09:11

    The scary part... according to a recent rape statistics study on rape.co.za Only 1 in 36 rapes are reported! This guy may be linked to 100 reported rape cases? which means how many woman did he actually already rape? Multiple that 100 by plenty more! It's just a pity that the punishment never fits the crime lately. We have allowed ourselves too much freedom and too many rights, hence even the really sick criminals cannot be effectively dealt with, in the name of human rights!

  • Maltacular - 2012-02-20 09:39

    But of course his "human rights" will ensure that he has the most comfortable life as possible. I say bring back the death penalty for cases like these and surely such bastards wouldn't even think of attempting it.

  • reza.daniels1 - 2012-02-20 10:28

    This is disgusting beyond words. How the higgins does someone get away with 100 rapes before getting caught? Epic fail on the local police. I suggest 99 victims institute a class action suit against the Minister of police and sue the crap out the gov and claim personal liability. I am gobsmacked by this enormous show of incompetence and gross negligence. Throw all the investigating officers in the same cell as this cretin.

  • Mhlophe - 2012-02-20 10:46

    The guy should have his Pennis chopped off or be executed , What could be worse than being linked to 100 cases of Rape.

  • carina.welman - 2012-02-20 11:08

    And then there are idiots who still give thumbs down to all the comments.. Probably rapists or paedophiles themselves. Or anti death penalty supporters..

  • Rebaone - 2012-02-20 11:22

    100 rapes! He is not fit to be called a man and his manhood ought to be taken away from him as a price for all the pains he has caused to society and as for the SAPS i'm very dissapointed in them for they did not do their work in time.

  • LaLexxie - 2012-02-20 14:19

    this guy should be castrated,who does things like that.

  • Nkabinde Poppy - 2012-02-21 16:33

    D man deserves 2 go 4 a lyf tym in prison....hell...hw does he feel aftr dng all dis? he's a heartless,brutal sumbdy if chopping his penis wud be then let it be#shocked#

  • Chris - 2012-02-24 13:20
