Police hunt W Rand gang rape suspects

2013-02-23 20:33

Johannesburg  - Three more men, of at least 15 who gang raped a woman near Driefontein Number Five shaft in Carletonville, were still on the run, police said on Saturday.

Twelve of the alleged rapists were arrested on Thursday.

"The three other men are still being sought, police are following on every lead they can get," said spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.

The 23-year-old woman and her friend were on their way home to Mpahla Village, in Carletonville, on Wednesday when they were confronted by illegal miners.

The 23-year-old was hit on the head with a knobkerrie before being dragged to nearby bushes where she was raped by at least 12 men. Her friend escaped without physical injury.

Dlamini said the men then took the woman to a shack where another three men then raped her.

She sustained multiple injuries on the head, face and body, and was taken to hospital.

The 12 men, whom police said were illegal miners from Lesotho, are expected to appear in Carletonville Magistrate's Court on Monday.

  • SydneyG - 2013-02-23 21:27

    I guess I will one day go into the grave, without finding the reasons why some dingilis who call themselves men, still find raping a woman as some kind of sport. I mean, even the most ugly men out there have girlfriends, homeless men, one eyed men, legless men, fat men, short men, blind men; even the deaf and dumb men have girlfriends. Will somebody out there please hear my cry, and help me understand the need to rape a woman, children, elderly women and babies? Why Lord???

  • LesleyDGreyling - 2013-02-24 00:41

    well see this is what happens when there is no border control, and anyone can kinda just waltz into the country~! its bad enough we have so many SA en who rape - now we have people from other countries coming in an gang raping woman~! WT Heck?~! what's to stop them just going back to Lesotho~! Sheesh do we even KNOW who is IN our Country any more? Border control is a JOKE~! only the law abiding go through border gates. This is why crimes like poaching are SO successful~!

    Eliza Zuma Beth • a few seconds ago - I just cannot stop laughing.. A minister to dumb to drive the change in law to protect woman and children.. But not to dumb to protest in front of a court.. Hopefully one day, people will realize... Protest makes no difference... Proposals with solutions... Implementation of solutions is what makes a difference... But we can accept... Some choose to march the street is less effort that sitting in an office and do the work..... To me it is meaningless to protest... But for some ministers it is part of their job spec.. They even getting paid to do so, neh Minister Lulu Xingwana...

  • Godesha - 2013-02-24 10:20

    Catch the scum and hang them. The violence against women and children has got to stop!

  • hein.huyser - 2013-02-24 15:58

    Created in God's image huh? Yeah right! If this is not evidence of evolution I don't know what is. Barbarians belong in a stinking cave. I mean they clubbed her over the head, dragged her to a bush and took turns with her, wtf??

  • Hemlock - 2013-02-26 15:16

    Unbloodybelievable! Not a day goes by without rape being committed - these bastards must be castrated and de-penised and thrown in jail where they can get a taste of their own medicine. Bring back the death sentence cANCer!
