According to information that was reported to the Fever, two parents of the victims opened cases against the man after their teenage girls, both 16 years old, were allegedly raped by the man on November 5.

The young girls met the man at Bhongweni Township where he said he wanted to practice some rituals to remove demonic spirits and to help them pass their final exams.

The young girls went with him to his house for these rituals but were raped by the suspect who then threatened them, telling them not to inform their parents.

The following day, the young girls informed virgin testers about the incident after they were questioned as to why they refused to attend the programme.

Following that, the suspect fled his home, going on the run until he was caught by police in the Kwakhwihliza area on July 27, 2018.

Nceba Dedelo, the chairperson of Vulindlela Productions, a non-profit organisation which promotes safety of children in Kokstad, said the man deserves a heavy sentence for what he had done.

Dedelo said the NPO has helped many vulnerable children who live in the streets to get assistance from the Department of Social Development.

The secretary of the South African Communist Party (SACP) Thembisile Hani district, Ntlahla Zungu, called for justice to be served in this case.

Last Friday members of the SACP picketed outside the court when the man was due to appear.
