Modimolle victim under police guard

2012-01-10 19:11

Johannesburg - The woman subjected to a brutal attack in Modimolle, during which she was gang-raped and tortured, has been discharged from hospital, SABC News reports.

She'd been admitted to a Pretoria hospital after the attack last week and, Beeld newspaper reported, had undergone surgery.

The police told the SABC that the woman was in a safe house, where she is recovering under police guard.

She'd said on Monday that she was scared that the prime suspect, Johan Kotzé, would hunt her down and kill her.

Kotzé is said to have forced three workers at gunpoint to rape the woman.

He is also on the run for allegedly killing his 19-year-old stepson, Conrad Bonnette.

Police meanwhile have called on the three alleged attackers to come forward and help with the investigation.

Anyone with information can call Colonel Mabisela Mohale at 082 565 8606l.

    A few thoughts I've had. This was not a 'spur of the moment attack' Kotze planned it so he would have planned a way of avoiding arrest. Whilst Kotze was uding the knife on his wife, why didn't the 3 men jump him? The 3 men could have since been killed by Kotze to avoid witnesses. Why have the police been saying an arrest was imminent?

      Kim - 2012-01-10 19:56

      For all we know Grant, Kotze may have killed the 3 men.

      craigtjames - 2012-01-10 21:01

      I agree that he might have killed the men already. This is one sick human being. I cannot begin to think how this poor woman must feel.

    What triggered him in doing this .....Must be something

      Vegi - 2012-01-10 19:57

      Whatever it was that the woman did does not matter. He does not own the woman. Dangerouus low life and brainless pig. I hope he is devoured by wild beasts while he is on the run.

      @Frik - Stam saam. Ons het nou net daaroor gepraat.

      craigtjames - 2012-01-10 21:03

      It is a question which can be discussed yes. But imagine for yourself as a decent human being - is there anything which would trigger you to do such a thing? No man, it is inhumane - completely and utterly inhumane.

      koo.doyle - 2012-01-11 06:56

      Does it matter? Could ANYTHING justify this sort of behaviour? How can you even look to justify this?

    Where are the suspects, can they not assist the police with this case.

  • Leendert - 2012-01-10 19:51

    At first he was captured, then the police were close to capturing him, meanwhile he is still on the loose. A week later.

  • Vegi - 2012-01-10 19:53

    This is the type that is responsible for the runaway crime that this country is experiencing: Dirk Prinsloo George Luka Tannenbaum Johan Kotze Etc Etc The worse part is that the inept law enforcement agencies allow the low life scum to slip out of the country.

      cosmos.ndebele - 2012-01-10 20:35

      Prinsloo is eating Bear meat in Belarus jail for bank robbery,

      Judith - 2012-01-10 21:13

      Poor bears

      Daft - 2012-01-11 07:31

      We had the same problem during the 60's and the following comes to mind : Jacob Zuma Thabo Mbeki Peter Mokaba Jackey Selebe Etc Eyc...

    Chances are that the three where looking for work at the side of the road and that the pig picked them up, so they will not be able to tell much more except that they are crucial as witnesses to put pig away for a long long time.

  • Piet - 2012-01-10 20:00

    Uhm Police protection???

      Silver - 2012-01-11 07:33

      Yeah Other Piet, that thought also crossed my mind.

  • moby.quest - 2012-01-10 20:20

    Yesterday the police bragged that they knew exactly where the man was and they would make an arrest soon. And Now? Where is he??

  • hannesw1 - 2012-01-10 20:22

    Can this man please first be arrested, tried and convicted or has Media 24 and all these commentators already decided on his guilt? Who said these people did not attack him, or the stepson attacked him? At this stage we only have one side of the story. Let him be arrested and the truth will come out.

      cosmos.ndebele - 2012-01-10 20:37

      I said it yesterday and my comment was erased, we need to know more about this woman & the other co-conspirators. Trial by public opinion wont help.

      craigtjames - 2012-01-10 21:05

      Hannes, I understand what you are saying. But if he has such a side to tell, why is he not telling it.

      Judith - 2012-01-10 21:15

      I think that the "one side of the story" appears to be very evident in the damage done to a woman, and a dead son.....

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-01-10 22:08

      No one would make up such a story. It is beyond comprehension - that is why people are reacting so strongly. I don't think you have read all the reports. She was only married to this bustard for four months. He has had a couple of wives already, and is known to be a fraudster/trickster in all the town he lived in. His nickname was MacGyver - because of the way he could worm himself out of every situation - as he has done yet again.

      Gcwabe-KaMavovo - 2012-01-11 09:49

      Then why is he on the the run? If you're innocent then you need to hand yourself in and prove your innocence. Shrien Dewani is running away too, instead of proving his innocence. They are both guilty.

  • Wesley - 2012-01-10 20:26

    The police is still busy to turn all the stones, they should rather start looking for the Johan Kotze

      Derrick - 2012-01-10 21:33

      Nice one Wesley, i just hope the stone-turning is complete by now. What about 'justice must take its course' and the other one 'have his day in court' This savage needs to be spat on and urinated on whilst being force-fed faeces at gunpoint fed faeces at gunpoint

  • cosmos.ndebele - 2012-01-10 20:32

    Protect all citizens of this country against crime not only this woman.

      Judith - 2012-01-10 21:17

      I think the police ARE working for all citizens, and other cases that have been as odd as this one also make the news, like Rebecca - where no body was ever found...the police worked hard for that conviction and she was black...another murder perpetrated by a power-freak man

  • Moss - 2012-01-10 20:47

    Some stories you don't comment you cowards, when it involves Lolly's buddies & Krecir you hide your intelectual skills.

  • Robi - 2012-01-10 21:20

    where is the satanist. please police find him to rot in jail

  • debbie.odendaal1 - 2012-01-11 17:28

    I think the women of South Africa should break him out and let us serve the JUSTICE!!!!!!!! Scum is to good a word JUST GIVE HIM TO US WOMEN PLEASE !!!!! save the taxpayers money!

  • vaneyssen - 2012-01-11 22:49

    Well done to the cops for catching this creep.
