Teen tells of SA prostitution ring
Cape Town - A Johannesburg teenager has told how she was kidnapped and taken to Cape Town where she was forced to work as a prostitute.
The 16-year-old girl tipped off police on a human trafficking ring in South Africa, reported Eyewitness News.
She was abducted in Bramley in mid-October 2011 by four men and forced to drink a laced concoction which put her to sleep. When she woke up, she was in Khayelitsha where she was raped. She was then told that she would be working as a prostitute along with other South African teenagers.
She tried to escape twice and said she would rather have died trying to escape than have to live that kind of life.
She managed to escape after two months, and although she has been reunited with her parents, she is struggling to cope and to move on with her life.
She said she was unable to sleep and that it was the most terrible experience of her life.
The Hawks were currently investigating the case.
