Rape accused 'tried to urinate on cops'

2011-02-10 14:36
Johannesburg - Serial rape and murder accused Jack Mogale tried to urinate on the police officers arresting him at his shack near Zuurbekom in March 2009, the South Gauteng High Court heard on Thursday.

Westonaria policewoman Captain Kgomotso Manthata told the court that after Mogale's hands were handcuffed in front of him, he took out his penis and tried to urinate on police officers.

He also swore at members of the public who had gathered at the scene.

This prompted the officers to secure Mogale's hands behind his back.

Brutal rape


She told the court she went to Mogale's home on March 27 2009 with a team of police officers to arrest him after he was linked to the brutal attack and rape of a Venterspost teenager earlier that month.

The girl was offered a lift by Mogale, who told her he was a Zion Christian Church (ZCC) preacher and a prophet.

Instead of taking the girl to her destination, Mogale drove her to a field outside Westonaria, where he allegedly assaulted her until she was unconscious then raped her.

The girl regained consciousness more than 24-hours later.

Manthata said that during Mogale's arrest the girl's cellphone was recovered in his shack, along with a white G-string and sangoma beads.

She said the way in which the teenager was attacked was similar to the attacks on several other women in the Westonaria area.

More than 60 charges


This indicated that the same perpetrator was involved.

Manthata said that after receiving information from the victims who survived, she started looking for a ZCC preacher who wore sangoma beads and drove a white Volkswagen Golf with a specific registration number.

Most of Mogale's victims' bodies were found decomposing in the veld.

Mogale is facing more than 60 charges, including 19 counts of rape, 16 of murder and 18 of kidnapping.

The trial continues.
