Johannesburg - Anene Booysen's injuries were the worst ever seen by the doctor who treated her after her attack, the SABC reported on Tuesday.

Booysen, who was raped and disembowelled, died in the Tygerberg Hospital on the afternoon of Saturday, 2 February.

The Swellendam Circuit Court heard that Elizabeth de Kok treated 17-year-old Booysen at the Tygerberg Hospital, Cape Town, before she was transferred to a hospital in Swellendam, in the Western Cape.

According to the SABC, De Kok described Booysen's intestinal injuries as the worst she had ever seen.

Dr Liezl Taylor reportedly attended to Booysen in Swellendam. She said the extent of her injuries meant she would succumb to them.

The two doctors were testifying at Johannes Kana's rape and murder trial.

Kana has admitted leaving a Bredasdorp pub with Booysen, hitting and raping her, but has denied killing her.

She was raped and disembowelled and died in the Tygerberg Hospital on the afternoon of Saturday, 2 February.

The trial continues.
