Youth rapes 3 students in one night

2012-02-24 13:05

Johannesburg - A youth has been arrested after raping and robbing three University of Limpopo students in Mankweng, Limpopo police said.

The man apparently broke into the women's off-campus rooms, which were far apart, and raped them between 22:00 on Wednesday and 03:00 on Thursday, said Constable Moses Molepo in a statement.

Laptops and cellphones were also stolen.

The arrest followed a tip off.

The youth was expected to appear in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Molepo advised students to walk in groups after study times, to properly close the windows of their rooms and not let in strangers.

The university was not immediately available for comment.

    Reading the stories on news 24 makes the 3rd world country where I reside feel like heaven!

      Jadon - 2012-02-24 13:52

      Fredster - 2012-02-24 14:15

      Michael - 2012-02-24 14:23

      Jadon houses are cheap here, we dont need high fences and chubbs

      Michael - 2012-02-24 14:43

      @ Bret, implying we cant turn it into a 1st world on our own? if you shed that mentality then all are welcome just dont turn it into gangsters paradise

      Brett - 2012-02-24 15:07

      Dont worry we will leave all the gangsters behind. So that they can carry on "running" the country.

      CapeChappy - 2012-02-24 16:28

      Can I volunteer to rehabilitate this guy? I just need an hour and a soundproof cell.

      Ben - 2012-02-24 17:49

      I think that Michael lives in Kenya, maybe in the same region as the Masai.

      Ian - 2012-02-25 00:25

      I reckon Michael lives in Iraq, it's much safer than SA!

      jody.beggs - 2012-02-24 14:14

      Yes it had to be drugs. Blame it on the weed! Maybe he was just f%$ked up!

      Shanelle - 2012-02-24 14:52

      LMAO - @VaMbozha- yes I think he needs a lawyer like you. You didn't even read the article properly imagine how you going to represent him. He will end up in jail where he belongs!

  • Sharon - 2012-02-24 13:13

    Why is it necessary to rape? What spurred this little perv to commit this act? And 3 times in one night? Bloody madness.

      anne.crewe - 2012-05-03 17:21

      Its about power Sharon not sex.

  • Comrade - 2012-02-24 13:13

      what's the youth league got to do with this story?

  • Liviwe - 2012-02-24 13:15

    Where does this guy get the energy to rape 3 students at the same night.The guy is sick.needs to be locked.

      Merven - 2012-02-24 13:27

      Maybe he thought he was having crystals, meantime it was his dad's viagra?

  • Andre - 2012-02-24 13:21

    only an animal can rape 3 woman in 5 hours!!!!!!!!!!! he needs to be shot on the spot, the flippen animal, he must have rabies,

      Michelle - 2012-02-24 13:41

      Animals don't even do this Please stop comparing the filth in the article above to animals It is a huge insult to animals

  • Shirley - 2012-02-24 13:27

    Yet government still insists that we dont need the death penalty!!!! Start making laws that fit the crimes! At least life without possibility of parole and hard labour! Our prisoners have life too easy,thats why they dont fear being caught!

      Rory Marx - 2012-02-24 13:33

      yes shirley cos its lekker in prison we pay for their food and tvs etc in jail!they dont care!then government wants to spend R869 trillion on prisons?for what?

      Seth - 2012-02-24 16:15

      prisonners should do hard labour to pay for there own stay at the prison and there food . If there don't work on the road or what ever needs to be done there don't get anything . So when there come out there know what hard work is .

      Pieter - 2012-02-24 16:47

      He shouldn't go to prison. He will just get more sex there. Kill the mother f**ker. Hang him. He does not deserve life. In the same breath we should hang Malema as well

  • Dhavandran - 2012-02-24 13:28

    only in the land of the grabs take on a new meaning.shoot the bastard-whether black,white ,indian,coloured.there is no place for sicko's like this in our society.

  • lhenama - 2012-02-24 13:29

    3 people in one night, what did he eat on that night.

      Michelle - 2012-02-24 13:43

      I find your comment insensitive. So you are saying, based on your supper, will determine how many people you are going to rape?????

      Itu Santino Cortez - 2012-02-24 13:55

      Eish it was that pap gogo was cooking , it had that extra kick in it or maybe he was trying to try out his new pennis enlargement lotion.

      Michelle - 2012-02-25 05:18

      @Peter "Wind my neck in"????? Why become personal??? And what the hell does my "hubby" have to do with this?? I truly hope that the vicious act of rape does not affect you personally I know what I'm talking about Do you???

  • Diran - 2012-02-24 13:32

    Humans like this so called youth should be sh## d##d

      Desmond - 2012-02-24 15:06

      Insulting the human race by calling the monster human.

  • Dave - 2012-02-24 13:35

    Hang them all

  • Darren - 2012-02-24 13:37

    Limpopo …at it again

  • Hannes - 2012-02-24 13:46

    sick!!!!!!! i know every country has problems and crime and rape and and and.... but really the headlines today and this week seem like South Africa is moving backwards instead of forward...

  • Alida - 2012-02-24 13:46

    sick, sick, sick! He goes to prison, where he gets a fantastic life, ability to study, vote, eat for free and learns absolutely NO LESSON! I am not really pro-death penalty, but I do believe our prisons are too relaxed. You commited a crime against humanity, therefore ALL the priveleges you had as a free individual should be taken away. And that means being treated like a democratic citizen. Whatever happened to hard labour in the prisons? The problem these days are that the punishment definitely does not fit the crime.

  • Rory Marx - 2012-02-24 13:58

    besides mandela didnt want this too happen to the country!he didnt want the anc to be like they are today either!corrupt and fighting within the party!is that good for other countries to see political parties fighting within themselves!

      Sharon - 2012-02-24 14:21

      Then isn't it about time he spoke up, Rory?

      Emily-Jane Elson - 2012-02-24 14:48

      Why then does he not say anything??

      Marion - 2012-02-24 15:11

      @Sharon and Emily-Jane Elson .... Rory Marx said that 'Mandela didn't want this to happen'... I am sure he realises, as most people do, that Madiba is in an extremely frail state of health and should not be distressed in any way. Why should he speak up now? He did more than his share for the ANC and SA. It's not like we were all deaf and dumb when he was expressing his views. Although we sure as hell act as though we were. He came out of prison with a message of peace and reconciliation. It could just as easily have been a message of civil war.

      Kameomaua - 2012-02-24 15:12

      EXACTLY my point, too!! Has the government muzzled him? He had his wife read an obituary on his behalf at the funeral of some recently deceased veteran, but he cannot ask her to read a few one-liners to put this errant ANC government back into line. As long as one has breath, one should be involved with life and society.

      Adam - 2012-02-24 19:34

      Mandelas silence is as good as his approval.

  • Se-a Spencer Ikeremm - 2012-02-24 14:04


  • Madder Man - 2012-02-24 14:08

    I agree Makatika, why are they removing comments and blocking comments on stories that show white violence? the stories that reflect black violence also incite racial slurs and comments. It just seems strange. as chris rock put it: it's all right cause it's all white.

      Rory Marx - 2012-02-24 14:11

      because there isnt that much white ppl that are commiting crimes madder!besides most of the journalists are black!havnt u seen at conferences etc on tv!

      Madder Man - 2012-02-24 14:19

      I don't deny anything you say Rory. but the fact still remains: An article about an afrikaaner camp training young afrikaaners to kill black people, has had the comments removed from it. Whereas other articles are still open for commentary. Now unless the article was incorrect, then it should be open for discussion. And I don't know who is incharge or responsible for News24 commentary board monitoring.

      Marion - 2012-02-24 14:32

      @Rory Marx... I bet you that percentage-wise there are probably just as many people from each race group committing crime. e.g. 5% white, 5% coloured, 5% black, 5% asian. It's logical that it seems like it is always blacks because there are more blacks than any other population group. But if you start looking at the criminals in relation to the population group you will probably find that they are pretty evenly dispersed. Now, if we want to change the slant on this and say 'it's always men committing these crimes' then we will probably be a lot closer to the truth.

      Marion - 2012-02-24 14:42

      Go to this link and you may understand why the comments on that particular article were removed.

      Shanelle - 2012-02-24 15:07

      @Marion - Thank you for your common sense thats not common in these comments;)

  • Gavin - 2012-02-24 14:11

    I'm just glad this rat was caught, at the current speed of our legal system, he will be jailed in about 17 years time, and eligible for parole 2 months later. He'll then be appointed by the ANC as minister of finance.

  • Rory Marx - 2012-02-24 14:20

    feel so bad for those 3 woman that were raped!they are obviously emotionally distraught!its really sick what these animals do!imagine it was ur daughter!i would be angry!imagine he had aids!thats why there is hatred in this country!because of ppl like him!chop his penis off!

  • Marion - 2012-02-24 14:22

    Good grief. Was this chap on Viagra? Now were these rapes with burglary as an afterthought or burglary with rape as an afterthought? This young man should spend a long time in jail. Just hate the way he will be given concurrent sentences in SA. They must run consecutively, then we may actually see crime starting to decrease.

  • Nyiks11 - 2012-02-24 14:43

    whatever happenned to the 5-knuckle-shuffle ?

      @MGAYI, are you still playing ama 'dice' wanker!

      Nyiks11 - 2012-02-24 15:40

      no man Reagan , I was asking why can't this dude just please himself instead of running around with a hard on for 5 hours ?

  • Tulani - 2012-02-24 14:45

    this to me sounds not so true, from 22:00 to 3am 3 woman not guns mentioned, dude how dd u do it ? a youth in that fact

      Marion - 2012-02-24 15:14

      Tulani - your experiences tell you this is not possible? mmmmm do you know how virile young men are? Sexually at their peak at that age. That doesn't give them the right to go around helping themselves to sex because they don't know how to help themselves. Hope he gets a fat sentence. I also sincerely hope that there was no HIV/AIDS transmission here.

    Stop worrying people, the government assures us that crime is on the decline.

    Know what will be cool . IF the police bought a big boat and filled it with food and sent the prisoners inside it and drove the boat to the middle of the ocean then let them out but before that there make sure there is no more fuel in the boat and release them to make their own rules if there want there can rape each other but the trick is Whoever makes it back to south Africa will never what to do crime again with the trauma he gets is the same as the victims he conflicted on. (ps i know it's a bit mean tho )

  • Monique - 2012-02-24 16:44

    Crime in general is spiralling out of control. As a woman the rape statistics are extremely frightening. It feels that like we have to be caged in yet not even that guarantees our safety as in the case of these students. Something needs to be done but what heaven only knows. The government is complacent. We celebrate Women’s day in in August. Yes I know it is to commerate the national march in 1956 against the pass law. However, being relevant to our current time (2012) all the women in this country desperately need for their safety and that of their children and family. It may be a political holiday to celebrate great women, however, lets be relevant to our time and protect all women. It’s a holiday about women’s contribution. Dear Government please contribute to our safety there are great women in our current society to.

  • Wally - 2012-02-24 18:24

    The degredation of morals; teach them to have safe sex and dish out condoms at school. Combine that with a mentality that is aimed at being merely a primate and nothing more and imbiciles who are shouting from podiums to TAKE what they want...the result??? Need I ask? Go to any war history and see the utter barbaric rape of women and children. Add to that the spice of certain acts curing HIV/AIDS and the result becomes horrendous! Problem is, he is mentioned as a youth, and then CORRECTLY SO referred to as a "man" who broke into the rooms. He should not be dealt with as a youth and put in cotton wool. Treat him the way he acted. If he was a child we would not have read this about him in the first place. Enough of the psychological and socio-economical CRAP we are sold. Millions of ppl in the same circumstances and worse did not and are not committing these crimes. Stop finding excuses and deal with the real problem which is lawlessness and literally war on the streets - and the innocent have to live like being incarcerated once more! Just plain sick! Time for this country to get back on its knees and turn its face as a nation to the Living God. No, don't waste your time in attacking me...I know He exists, lives and will deal with the unrighteousness and iniquities of this world. You are not forced to serve God or accept Christ, but as a nation we cannot even plead ignorance. Your choice, as it is mine. Misplaced priorities and wasted moral values = rotten society!

    I wonder how the University management & the Mankweng SAPS feels about this. Maybe they are happy. We've all along been asking the management to provide off camp student with transport for night delivery after studying & for street lights at the community streets where student are staying since they don't want to provide enough accomodation and they are not ready to allow private stake holders to build residences on campus. This is not the first time such insident happens. In a mass prayer in 2009 if not 2010, the Mankweng SAPS together with the management promised student that they are going to work together for a constant 24hours patrol off campus. But still today nothing of such has happened. They are only best at shooting students with rubber bullets & expeling them when they boycott.

    I bet it was a n*gger who raped those white ladies. When will South Africans realize that all n*ggers are wiping out the whites? I mean, look at the white farmer's being MUTILATED and women\children being GANGRAPED! Thank God I'm American. I am working on getting all whities out of that filthy country and leaving it to the Apes. Come home to America, my white and your awesome accents are needed here!
