Durban - A woman who was allegedly kidnapped and raped by former Blue Bulls rugby player Phindile Joseph Ntshongwana told the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Durban on Tuesday how she met him.

The 27-year-old woman, who cannot be named, said she had been walking near Park Street in Durban when Ntshongwana offered her a lift.

Ntshongwana is charged with the murder of Thembelenkosini Cebekhulu in Montclair on 20 March 2011, Paulos Hlongwa two days later, Ngidi the following day, and an unidentified man sometime that week.

All were hacked to death with an axe.

Ntshongwana is further accused of kidnapping and raping a woman on November 28, 2010, and faces a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The woman told the court she got into Ntshongwana's car to try and explain to him he was mistaking her for someone else.

Ntshongwana drove the car to a house and would not stop when the woman asked him repeatedly if she could get out of the car.The woman said she did not know where she was.

During the drive, Ntshongwana asked the woman why she was pretending to not know him. He also took her hand and placed it on his crotch and asked her if she had ever had sex with a Xhosa boy.

"I told him no; he told me that today I would experience how it was like to sleep with a Xhosa boy," she said.

The woman said when they got to the house Ntshongwana parked the car in the garage and led her to his bedroom.

He held her hand tightly and kept on checking if anyone had seen them. When they got to the bedroom he took his clothes off and remained in his underwear.

He got into bed and told her to take her clothes off. He then asked the woman where she had been on Friday, to which she replied at church.

Ntshongwana got infuriated and said she was lying.

"He told me I had been with my other boyfriends," she said.

Ntshongwana threatened the woman by telling her he had killed someone.

She said Ntshongwana ordered her to come to bed and to kiss him.

"I did that. I didn't want to kiss him [but] he forced me and pulled me closer to him."

The woman broke down on the stand as she tried to explain to the court what had happened.

She would continue testifying on Thursday as she was writing exams.

Another State witness would testify on Wednesday.

The woman testified in camera, and members of the public were asked to leave the court room.
