North West man gang-raped

2013-02-16 14:05

Johannesburg - A North West man was allegedly gang-raped by six men in Mooinooi, Rustenburg, police said on Saturday.

The 33-year-old man reported the incident to police on Friday after he was taken to a hospital, police spokesperson Thulani Ngubane said.

The man was hitchhiking from work in Rustenburg to his home in Kroondal on Thursday when a white Toyota Hillux bakkie with six men stopped to offer him a lift.

"Allegations... state that the driver of the vehicle passed Kroondal and did not stop for the victim," said Ngubane.

"It is further alleged that the suspects demanded the victim's wallet with intentions to rob him and it was empty."

They drove to a nearby bush, drugged him and covered his head with a plastic bag before raping him.

They then left him in the bush.

No arrests were made.

    WTF!!!!! R u f....kin kidding me!!!! - 2013-02-16 14:13

      South Africa is one bizarre country!

      NickvanGraan - 2013-02-16 14:19

      How do you even get aroused to do this??

      squeegee.pilot - 2013-02-16 14:33

      Nicky, its all Apartheid's fault... Sigh, actually its really scary. No one is safe. Barbarians. - 2013-02-16 15:20

      Maybe these Six guys are ex-cons who have spent a long time in jail hence why they were easily aroused to rape a man.The police should probably consider this angle when trying to track down the suspects.

      bibi.vanzyl - 2013-02-16 17:51

      @andreas: you've got to be kidding. Rape is just one aspect of violence.

      andreas.meyer.12327 - 2013-02-16 18:09

      I am not kidding. And rape is also an expression of (perverted) sexuality.

      janalbert.vandenberg - 2013-02-16 18:25

      (1) homosexuality isn't perverted (2) your deceived notion that homosexual people are more prone to commit acts of rape is disturbing (3) keep in mind: if you really hate gays that much you should start to realise why... Homophobia: hating to be treated the way YOU treat women.

      Tuyez - 2013-02-16 19:38

      Why did they rape the poor man. If it was six of them and aroused they should have help themselves. Bunch of gays.

  • Mary Jane Mphahlele - 2013-02-16 14:12

    rapists should be castrated Jail time doesn't sent out a clear message

      kortbroek.duplessis - 2013-02-16 14:56

      They should be executed in public. Make an example of them.

      Carla, who says that?!

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-16 17:25

      Really, Carla? You condone rape if a man is on the receiving end? Sick puppy. I wish NO-ONE, no man, no woman, would EVER be raped.

      Gideon.Viljoen - 2013-02-16 17:37

      Blinding good comment

      silvia.vaneck2 - 2013-02-16 18:02

      Carla, The problem with your reasoning is that those men that are raped aren't those that rape women and therefore don't deserve to feel what it's like. However if you advocate that a rapist has a red hot poker stuck up his uhm..bottom hole, I am all for it!!

  • Kay Carakas - 2013-02-16 14:18

    Where are the cops?? Police are a joke in SA. Surely a white bakkie with 6 guys at a certain time and location can be tracked. Check filling station CCTV footage, speak to people etc. Come on guys, do your job and protect us.

      Thilivhali Fitzgerald - 2013-02-16 14:26

      i can bet that bakkie was highjacked somewhere believe me its just a waste of time,i wouldnt ride in a car with 6 people i dont know that guy is so stupid

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-16 19:01

      Yeah, Thilivhali, he was just asking for it, wasn't he? His bad.

  • new.dawn.526 - 2013-02-16 14:27

    This is an act of war. The world is now divided between rapists and non-rapists. I have begun donations to a war chest aimed at fighting this treasonous behaviour. I am a man, but I severely despise evil men like this (and in rare cases, women who do this to honest men). I am disgusted by the human race. For every politician with power that stands idly by on the wrong side of history, while this torture continues, there will one day be retribution against you and the rapists - for you are both equally accountable to the good public and a higher power. There had better be a severe crack down before a civil war erupts. - may this world one day find peace....

  • veritas.odium.paret - 2013-02-16 14:27

    We have a very serious rape problem...

      charlietlo - 2013-02-16 16:06

      how hard can it be to ask someone out

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-16 17:28

      Charlie, are you sentient?

  • Mbuso Siera - 2013-02-16 14:29

    In other African countries young girls and women are raped everyday and there are few or no reports at all but in such a country like South Africa were the rape victims have the courage to reports such incidents without fear because of all the programs that encourages the victims to speak out......Its time for us South African citizens to stop marching just to attract the media's attention...but to submit a petition to this government of our to bring back the death penalty..on violet Rapist,Murderers and Drug dealers....

      walter.tgsa - 2013-02-16 16:26

      Just watched BBC News and they did mentioned that rape in South Africa is as bad as in India, our country makeing world news again, and all (again...) for the WRONG reasons...

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-16 17:30

      Many have the courage to speak out, Mbuso; my fear is that many more feel a shame that is truly not theirs to bear and they suffer alone, with no support, help or comfort.

  • mmashamaite1 - 2013-02-16 14:31

    We live in a sick,demented society!

      henk63 - 2013-02-16 14:41

      I distance myself to the fullest from this society. I am not part of it and will never be. These monsters are in a society of their own, and they will probably blame apartheid for that.

      tersia.louw.12 - 2013-02-16 17:33

      Maybe, Jose, people should take personal responsibility for the crimes they commit instead of looking to place blame elsewhere, be it on apartheid or the devil or a labrador. How would that be? That work for you?

  • hloyiSnowy - 2013-02-16 14:33

    I think Death penalty should exist 4 these rapist, enough is enough.

    Men gang raping a man outside prison walls???? No psychiatrist will be able to figure this out, of that I am sure. It is not human behaviour on any level.

  • johnwyattcapetown - 2013-02-16 18:30

    Reading through these comments really saddens me.......homophobic clap trap and someone thought it really funny to bring in the Oscar in prison angle. Someone says they should be executed. You don't live in the real world at all. Yes men get raped everyday. Not all men that get raped are raped by gay men. C'mon South Africa get real, blinkers off, brains engaged. Johnathon
