Johannesburg - A suspected rapist was stoned to death in Lethabile, North West, on Monday, police said.

The 27-year-old man had apparently tried to rape the 19-year-old girl on Monday morning, Captain Adele Myburgh said in a statement.

Local residents went looking for him and a group of about 150 attacked him.

"The victim was stoned and assaulted until he died. [His] body was discovered by police and the scene was cordoned off with the help of the public order police unit."

No arrests had been made. The man was a suspect in a murder case, two rape cases, one attempted rape, one robbery, and three housebreaking cases.

      I can hear the liberals cringing as he may have been innocent. Bottom line is, don't get yourself into the situation to be accused and if it transpires that the girl was lying, stone her as well. This will sort out crime in no time and save us a heap of money!

      This is how its done in the rural areas. no plea bargins, no shady lawyers, no dockets going missing, no parol, no wasting of tax payers money.

      @tuco well this can be urbanised faster than the new police chief can sort out the mess this mob justice needs to become the norm.

    "IT IS BETTER THAT 1000 GUILTY GO FREE RATHER THAN ONE INNOCENT GOES TO JAIL" but then the 1000 do another few thousand rapes and murders. bummer if you are the 1 innocent though bigger bummer if you are 1 of the few thousand that have been raped and murdered

    Although it's wrong to kill him, his death is a welcome relieve.

    Send the "Sunday rapist" to the village

  • BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-07-31 15:21

    Dangerous when this starts happening because it can backfire and go terribly wrong, and innocent people can be killed. Yet somehow I also feel that with intolerable high accounts of Rape in SA, that this is swift justice and they get what the truly deserve, instead of being pampered in a prison.
