Woman raped, son killed in Limpopo

2012-01-04 08:14

Polokwane - A woman was raped and her 19-year-old son was shot dead in Modimolle on Tuesday afternoon, Limpopo police said.

It was believed that the woman's estranged husband and three of his employees were behind the attack, said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

The four men tied the woman to a bed in her home, before her husband allegedly ordered them to rape her at gunpoint.

During the rape, the estranged couple's son arrived home and the intruders allegedly shot him in the head.

Afterwards, the men fled the scene in a white Toyota Fortuner.

No arrests had been made by Tuesday night.

    Very tragic story, little said.

      Thando - 2012-01-04 09:18

      This is like a real life horror movie. Man the death penalty is the only thing to save us.

      Deon - 2012-01-04 11:24

      The Fortuner Reg number is DCS 392 FS

  • Squeegee - 2012-01-04 08:30

    When, oh when, will we see the death penalty imposed on the guilty not the innocent?

      Bardy - 2012-01-04 08:47

      @ Ashley - The difference between trafficking drugs and raping/murdering people is huge my friend! Your statement is the thing that does not make sense! Bring back the death penalty FFS!

      Ashley - 2012-01-04 09:09

      @ Bardy - with reference to many other articles, which include drugs, rape, murder, people always say, bring back the death penalty. i'm not opposing it but what you just commented that what i said does not make sense, you are wrong! Drugs bring along with it, rape, murder, so there is no difference!!

      Squeegee - 2012-01-04 09:29

      Good point Steve. But, it leaves us with no hope whatsoever as far as justice is concerned. Crimainals impose the death penalty on innocents every day, but their own fate is constitutionally defended.

      Janice - 2012-01-04 10:53

      I totally agree!!! This is pure savage!!!

  • Ian - 2012-01-04 08:30

    seriously, how sick must you be to do that?

  • Tony - 2012-01-04 08:30

    Sick im telling you sick!

  • afroduckk - 2012-01-04 08:34

    Wait , this is not true ... What next are these people going to do ???? This is way beyond TRAGIC , this senseless brutality. Bring back the DEATH PENALTY to get rid of these 'Brainless Fool'.

  • Larry - 2012-01-04 08:37

    What an absolute Tragic disgrace. Another example of why we need the Death Penalty.

  • Garth - 2012-01-04 08:41

    It is my hope that the husband ends up in the same too-small goal-cell as ten well-hung body-builders with a penchant for male derrière.

  • Marius - 2012-01-04 08:42

    No respect for life. So sad.

  • Phil - 2012-01-04 08:43

    This is so sick..I want to vomit on the thought of it.

  • Ashley - 2012-01-04 08:43

    I would also like to see the death penalty brought back, just one problem with most of us South Africans, When China executed that Drug mule, almost all of SA was against it, saying that the government didn't do enough to stop it, yet when something happens in SA, we want the death penalty back. It doesn't make any sense. "Contradictive"

      afroduckk - 2012-01-04 08:54

      @Ashley. You are incorrect in saying that 'almost all of SA was against it' ... I can assure you , that there were very few SA people that would have wanted anything else to occur other than to remove these type of people from our society. So I agree with the majority , BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALITY.

      Leonard - 2012-01-04 09:44

      Ashley.who says that we were against it. She was a convicted criminal that should have known what China's standpoint is on drug trafficking. Have you ever seen what drugs do to people and their families. She is now regarded as a hero. He remains were brought home via police escort etc. How can this be? This rape and murder is unacceptable and the perpetrators should be put down. I believe in equal rights for all and especially equality before the law. I however believe these rights to have been forfeited if you break the law.

      linda.vanrooyen - 2012-01-11 20:48

      Anyone who has had a child addicted to drugs like me would cry shoot the drug mule at dawn. I have no simpathy for them they don't care about the people whose lives they destroy with the drugs they carry.

  • Ryno - 2012-01-04 08:48

    : Wees asb op uitkyk vir n wit fortuner met FS registrasie nommer. Wit man is Johan Kotze saam 3 swartmans. Johan is gewapen. Hy het sy vriendin in Nylstroom vasgebind die drie swartes haar laat verkrag en haar seun voor haar doodgeskiet. Vermoedelik in Warmbad rigting gevlug. DCS392FS. Bc vir almal asb!!

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 08:58

      Is Meneer Kotze die vrou se man??

      Tshivhombela Fhatuwani - 2012-01-04 09:01

      Do you know the guy?

      Johan - 2012-01-04 09:15

      John - 2012-01-04 09:17

      How is it that Ryno has the details, and yet it is not released to the press?? Surely this sort of information should be given to the press so the public can lend their eyes and ears to the SAPS. As the public we so often hear appeals from the SAPS to support them in their fight against crime, and yet whenever there is an incident they give the public no information in order to assist them with.

      Johncarlos Cynical Biza - 2012-01-04 09:36

      Translation: Look out for a white Toyota Fortuner with FS(Free State) registration. White male Johan Kotze with 3 black males. Johan is armed. He tied up his friend in Nylstroom, the 3 blacks raped her and later shot her son. Suspected to have fled to Warmbads(Bela Bela). DCS 392 FS. Please share

      William - 2012-01-04 11:29

      @Perfume: The article has a photo of the man and his ID book.

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 11:49

      @Willem, thanks I have limited access at work :-) he is a VILE man to do that to his own wife - the death of his son will remain with him for the rest of his wicked life.

  • cameronjohnprice - 2012-01-04 08:51

    I hope they catch these guys quickly. I hope the thugs try to shoot the police. I hope the police shoot them instead. I hope they die in the shootout.

      John - 2012-01-04 09:08

      Why put the lives of police officers at risk?? If you want to live in a civilised society, we need to behave in a civilised manner. Let them get arrested, bail refused because of the extreme circumstances and spend the rest of their lives paying the penalty. Yes, unfortunately we don't have the death penalty.

      cameronjohnprice - 2012-01-04 09:50

      @ John We dont live in a civilised society.

      Siso - 2012-01-05 14:32

      I agree with John, why risk the lives of the policement whereas these guys can be caught without any shootingg

  • Deon - 2012-01-04 08:51

    When will some people realise that theire marriage was over? Never.

  • Perfume - 2012-01-04 08:55

    Barbaric - he will live for the rest of his life knowing he played a part in his son's death. Vile man!!!!!

  • Tshivhombela Fhatuwani - 2012-01-04 08:57

    I would be surprised if a week could go by without this form of violent crime. We are simply becoming murderous than Mexico day after day. Yesterday it was comments on cricket game and now is grief again and this is bad. The perpetrators should be known to the victims but after arrest they will be given bail and look for another prey. Death penalty must come back but it is unlikely because our leaders are also criminals.

      Jason Morgan - 2012-01-04 11:33

      I know what you mean sometimes it so depressing/stressing to always read about horrendous crimes Like this. In Mexico the killings are happening becaz of drugs warlords. But in south Africa is a different story. Next time don't be suprised if you see Jackie selebi being a deputy president sharing the office with Jacob zuma and schabir shaik will become the minister of justice, that's south Africa for you the land of possibilities.

  • grant.weston1 - 2012-01-04 09:05

    Every day while reading these tragic stories I notice people give "thumbs down" to comments from people with genuine points. What is wrong with you sick people? If you are giving a "thumbs down" to someone offering condolences, please explain why. Or at least ask yourself why when you're trying to sleep at night.

  • Wanda - 2012-01-04 09:07

    My new years resolution is not to read the news watch the news listen to the news...too negative rather focus on the positive, every country has it's problems, every country has corrupt officials,every country has racism, it's the people who live in the country that can make the change and difference,too much bitterness and hatred in this world...have a wonderful 2012 everyone and focus on the good and be positive.Life is are alive be grateful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I thank God for my children, their partners, my grandkiddies and all my family and friends every day..starts the day off on a positive note.

      Susan - 2012-01-04 10:04

      Good for you Wanda, but unfortunately if you stick your head in the ground like an ostrich the bad will not magically dissapear, in this country things will only get worse. I agree that we must cherish our loved ones, we never know what the future holds for us.

    Tragic! This poor woman,s estranged husband has to be beyond redemtion. How can we as a so called civilised soceity allow such cold blooded people stil be imprisoned to live and breath?

  • Olivia - 2012-01-04 10:07

    Everybody rants about the death penalty but does not see the matter for what it is. Another case of domestic violence brushed under the carpet probably escalated and ended in murder. That's why the stop violence against women and children campaign is so important. Domestic violence ends in situations like this frequently but it is always hushed because the men in the scenario is cunning in hiding what they do. Death penalty won't help with our corrupt government. They can't even catch the criminals how to impose a death penalty when the government is a mess. Maybe mob justice is justified if barbaric, who knows.

    animals should be kept isolated from humans as they got no brains and obviously behave accordingly.

      Bundubabe - 2012-01-04 10:51

      They're not animals... they are far, far worse! It's an insult to animals to put them into their category!

  • marinus.cloete - 2012-01-04 10:47

    Kotze was the second husband - they were seperated, and in the process of a devorce

  • peter.norma - 2012-01-04 11:05

    The death penalty is the only fitting punishent for this savagery.

  • anzeldutoit - 2012-01-04 11:08

    Don't think the English version gives all the details. The man shot the son and the rapist cut her breasts. The article doesn't even give the full description of the car! White Toyota Fortuner registration DCS 392 FS. Anyone with info can contact col. Mabisela Mohale at 082 565 8606.

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 11:56

      Are you serious, did he shoot his own son, I am still trying to work around that the rapist the lady's breast - lot to digest.

  • anzeldutoit - 2012-01-04 11:10

    The English article sucks! They don't give all the details. The man son the son while the other 3 raped the women. They stabbed and cut her breasts! The article don't even give the full description of the vehicle! White Toyota Fortuner registration DCS 392 FS. Anyone with info can contact col. Mabisela Mohale at 082 565 8606.

    What's wrong with these people ? Shoot your own son, Force defenceless & unarmed Black employees to rape your wife,... abusive racist criminal. I hope you rot in prison for the trauma you caused this victims...Just like Mark Scott-Crossley & Shrien Dewani they may not stay long in prison,..

      Hamrammr - 2012-01-04 11:50

      Chabi, is the pot calling the kettle black with regards to the racism remark? Refrain from making uninformed racist remarks before you have the full story! I believe there is more to this story as I can't see myself having an erection with a gun against my head... The truth will be revealed eventually, but three men scared of one guy, no way! Ps. By stating "What's wrong with these people?" I hope you are referring to criminals in general...

  • Erich - 2012-01-04 11:38

    This monster should be permanently removed from society - ASAP.

  • Consolata - 2012-01-04 11:54

    I think that everyone that is tired of this sick madness taking over SA should sign a petition for the reinstatement of the death penalty and lets hand it over to parliament. How much more of this can we take as a society and just have to stand back and watch as these criminals walk away. If the petition thing doesnt work then lets start a website whereby people can report their rapists and perhaps we can dish out our own punishment to all the people on that list provided that we the public investigate the matter on our own before dishing out punishment cos the goverment is not doing sh*t for us.

  • larisha.toffar - 2012-01-04 14:17

    Death penalty is too easy... put the law into her hands - make him suffer the way she did. Not only being raped but their son being shot in the head (was that really necessary?) Yes we all believe in God etc. Comment against it when you've been through what that lady went/is going through!! May HE give you the strength to go on dear.

  • carolyn.dewrance - 2012-01-04 16:07

    If the death sentence is ever brought back, first in line will be Malema, then Zuma and Tutu for the crimes and murders they have instituted against the citizens of South Africa. one way to get rid of a corrupt goverment.

  • Thinkagain - 2012-01-04 19:27

    Can someone please find Johan Kotze, before he commits suicide and takes the easy way out! He must suffer and rot away, he must pay for what he did. This is totally dispicable!

  • benjlaw - 2012-01-05 10:42

    I know the people in this article and I must say that the reporter in this instance really didn't give a clear picture of what the hell happened and who's who in this case. So just that you all know, the sick twisted idiot who pulled the trigger is NOT the boy’s father, he’s the woman latest ex. The boy’s father is a personal friend of mine and he has enough to deal with at this time still trying to understand why this happened and explaining it to his daughter. The boy’s father and mother divorced a few years back and both he and his sister lived with her. Thank God that the sister wasn't home when all this happened. The sicko is Johan Kotze (Boertjie), he drives a white Toyota Fortuner with reg. DCS392FS.

  • Siso - 2012-01-05 14:42

    You know I have read all the comments and all I could hear is to bring death penalty back which I is also something that I would love to see happening. But the question is: Who exactly is suppose to bring it back, aren't we are the ones who needs to do something about it. I think as south africans we need to take a stand, if we can vote for our presidents why not vote on bringing death penalty back because otherwise we will never hear the end of these horrific stories (killings).

      alansmartSnr - 2012-01-05 18:33

      Why the death penalty will not be brought back? Firstly because it's illegality is entrenched in our Constitution. Secondly our Constitution can only be ammended by an 67% majority, which the ruling party,fortunately does not have. I say fortunately 'cos if they had that kind of a majority there is no telling how much they would abuse it and change all sorts of things that protect us rule of law, appeal courts, ect. Thirdly.. If it was brought back God only knows how this aspect could also be abused and lastly .. I can think of several politicians who would immediately qualify to be stringed up.. and they would not want that.. that is the unfortunate situation we will have to live with.. which would quite justify vigilanties taking the law in their own hands in extreme cases like this one.
