Johannesburg – The government on Monday condemned the rape of a woman and the murders of two men in Rhodes Park in Kensington, Johannesburg. 

"This dreadful incident and similar criminal activities should be condemned by all peace loving South Africans," spokesperson Phumla Williams said in a statement.

She said everything possible was being done to catch the gang of 12 men responsible.

Westbury Secondary School teacher Zukisa Kela, his wife, and another couple were attacked while walking in the park on Saturday evening.

The men raped one of the women, tied up the two men and threw them into the lake, where they drowned. The second woman ran away and called for help.
