Woman testifies in rape trial

2011-02-09 10:56

A woman told the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg today how an alleged serial rapist and killer tried to lure her into his trap by claiming to be a prophet who predicted she would marry a rich man.

The woman, who cannot be named due to the nature of the alleged crime, told the court she was 19 when she came across Jack Mogale in Venterspost on March 13, 2009.

The woman, who pointed out Mogale as her alleged attacker, told the court he claimed to her he was a preacher at the Zion Christian Church and a prophet.

He allegedly told her of “seeing” her marrying a rich man and suggested she use Joko tea to rid herself of bad luck.
Mogale is facing more than 60 charges, including rape, murder, assault and kidnapping.

He allegedly committed the crimes in Westonaria and Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, between 2008 and 2009.
