Rapist hijackers arrested

2012-10-07 07:18

Johannesburg - Three men were arrested in connection with a spate of hijackings in Soweto on Saturday, police said.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said police suspect the men could be linked to hijackings in Naledi, Dobsonville and Kagiso. Makhubela said the men were also linked to a hijacking and rape that happened last week.

"They hijacked a woman in a VW Polo...then they dragged her to a secluded area where they all raped her," he said. The men were expected to appear in the Protea Magistrates Court on Monday.

      I demand that they be released immediately!!! Into the care of the community they terrorised!

    Well done South African police. May you please also arrest the Zimbabweans that have embark on a wave of crime in the country killing white farmers and white community at large. We black south africans we are now painted in the same paint. Recent high profile murders and farm murders were proven to be committed by them. Yes there is a bunch of stupid south africans doing evil things. They will also face the full might of the la as well.

      gary.guy.507 - 2012-10-07 07:53

      could not agree more johannes. i am convinced that if you took the total (serious) crime stats, looked at the ratio of those committed by south african to non-south africans ... then looked at the ratio of SA to non SA people in this country, we would see it is very skewed. every person north of us who wants to be a criminal decides that SA is the best place... more wealth her, criminal get treated like royalty, easy to bribe your way out or escape if you get caught.

      jonivdw - 2012-10-07 08:38

      Not just Zimbabweans.... Mozambican criminals also extremely violent and they love to rape and brutally savage their victims! I would love to see the stats with regards to the criminals languishing in our prisons by country... Would give us an interesting perspective as well as the impact our "open borders" have on our crime rate! Been the victim of crime a couple of times and not once was it a fellow South African. Mugged by a Zimbabwean, smash and grab attempt by a Zimbabwean, attempted murder and house robbery by Mozambican.....

      @johannes. It's funny you mention that. A black co-worker told me the exact same thing that he feels looked upon because of foreigners comitting these crimes. But it is also our fault for hiring these criminals because they may work well and be friendly, but at the end, they kill us and rape our families. I suggest we have a national referendum to have them (illegals) expelled from our country. Mugabe must look after his own.

      brandon.mccutcheon.56 - 2012-10-07 11:16

      I created a group after which we will submit a petition. https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/180000382137495/

      Oh wow! Now it's no longer in the genetic makeup of all Blacks, it's in the genetic makeup of Zimbabwean

      jonivdw - 2012-10-07 17:42

      Hey Stella we're referring to the criminal element only and not all Zimbabweans or Mozambicans! My experience with crime in my South Africa has always been perpetrated by non-South Africans. Yes it is to do with genetic make up as they have isolated genes that indicate psychopathic, sociopathic, killer and criminal tendencies! These genes have been identified in all race groups! Please don't racialise this issue!

  • Lebogang Kotsokoane - 2012-10-07 07:40

    i wish they rot in jails these bastards. they must also be molested so hard by other prisoners to feel what the poor woman felt. that's d only way. i don't vote for death penalty because u suffer for a minute then that's it. they must be molested day & night by other prisoners finish & klaar.

  • ben.spreeth - 2012-10-07 07:41

    Good they were caught but the job will only be done once they have been removed from society permanently. Elimination is the solution.

      gary.guy.507 - 2012-10-07 07:57

      Unfortunately it does not work that way here in SA. We still need to give them bail, let them out to commit more rape, catch them again in another provinces, not know about their previous arrests so bail again... go through this cycle a few times... throw in an escape or two... 10 years later and 30 more rapes and a few murders and we will pat ourselves on the back for locking these guys away for good!!

      rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:44

      @gary.guy NO We don't "have to". There is no Divine law that says government is in "control". In fact that are Satanists in the light of Genesis 1:29 alone and even Christians are too brainwashed to see it. All humans are equal and only God is a bit more equal.

  • beverly.young3 - 2012-10-07 07:42

    This is so scary. Before the rotten tomatoes are lobbed at me, when I was a child....err the death penalty was automatic for rape. Just saying .... @ johannes, rape is not an exclusive weapon of blacks....

  • zmvulane - 2012-10-07 07:47

    Once more Job well done to SAPS! Now who has the Taliban's number?!

      rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:51

      Wait till the police get you for not paying a toll fee. Take your car of the road because you don't pay the "protection" fee for owning a vehicle or a business.. Government and gangsters are the same thing. The one only enjoys an international fraternity of other gangs.

  • khethu.ndlovu.3 - 2012-10-07 07:53

    Throw the book @ them, my polo is not safe.

  • Harold Chisimba - 2012-10-07 07:54

    Ooyes! Next time Iwill shoot all rapists,murders and armed robbers together with their lawyers who defend their atrocities in court.GTH

      matodzi.steveraliwedzha - 2012-10-07 08:01

      Then the icd will will investigate u n charge with murder even though u did de right thing. This icd supports de criminals

      rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:52

      Almost the proper attitude but it needs a bit more maturity in expression. And a refined understanding of the dynamics related.

  • braamc - 2012-10-07 08:03

    What happened to shoot to kill?

      rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:53

      Careful, don't get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Rapist hijakers arrested

      devon.riley.52 - 2012-10-07 09:26

      Should have been rapist hijackers shot in police custody

      rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:56

      @devon People get wrongly convicted in court after much debate. I guess it isnt much of an issue if we just shorten the time frame. The police standard procedure still seems to be "Arrest any suspect and beat a confession out of them- case closed".

  • mthaah.masuku - 2012-10-07 08:13

    Job wel done. Ey there should b a law that say- u rape they cut your d**k. Mayb no one wl rape

      rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:57

      No Just issue women with guns and knives as standard attire.

  • Steven Trollip - 2012-10-07 08:33

    @Michael.You should be investigated for previous rape cases.you sick little M.... F@cker twit!!

  • johan.jacobs.33821 - 2012-10-07 08:41

  • caine.abel.75 - 2012-10-07 11:15

    Put them on trail and let the media in all the way so we the public can see how they get away with this crime ...this screwed up justice system fails us time after time they need to be dealt with swiftly, not a drawn out court procedure

  • debbie.bolton.127 - 2012-10-07 11:36

    Burn the bastards, spose it was bloody zimbabweans again, I just had them staying on my property helped them with food even though I'm out of work then they kick u in the face, government should kick this trash outa SA, then SA would be better

  • Mandy Casey - 2012-10-07 11:49

    Don't send email to "Michael" he is obviously gathering your email addresses and you will receive spam for the rest of your life.

    Bloody savages.

  • mrtinyiko.matsambu - 2012-10-07 13:15

    Ghettos were created not to produce Saints, but hardcore thugs, savages, maffias, shebeen queens and druglords. And the bulk of the people mentioned above are township role models. So, while we condemn the deeds committed by this young boys from the hood, we should also look at the society which, nurtured them from birth. With no career prospects, and no ambition to live beyond the youth age, they live everyday wondering if Heaven also got a Ghetto.

  • rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:38

    Just allow the public to have guns and most of these bastards would be shot and stopped at the first attempt. Does any idiot still think that the Government's role in individual safety and security should override every damn physical threat? Anyone who still sees governmemnt as anything other than a hostile tyranny deserves a country in this state.

  • rusted.axe - 2012-10-07 16:41

    What we need is a systematic and effective alternative to citizen armament. Instead of taking skills overseas. Set up unregistered businesses. Make our country work despite the governments and the banks and their international puppet masters. Make the police irrelevant. Anyone threatening anyone with violence is a criminal. Whether they wear uniforms or tattoos.

  • ken.koen - 2012-10-08 07:29

    They should'nt arrest them, they should shoot them while escaping. That way the courts wouldn't be able to set them free again, and they will never commit savage crimes again.
