Johannesburg – The trial of three men accused of raping two women and killing their husbands at Rhodes Park in Johannesburg is expected to continue in the High Court in Palm Ridge on Monday.

Admore Ndlovu, 23, Thabo Nkala, 25, and Mduduzi Mathibela Lawrence, 32, have been charged with robbery with aggravating circumstances, rape, and murder.

They were allegedly part of a 12-man gang that attacked two couples who had gone to the park, in Kensington, on the evening of Saturday, October 17, 2015 after church.

The four were reportedly forced to lie on the ground. A knife was used to cut off the panties of both women before they were raped.

Their husbands, Zukisa Khela and Sizwe Tyeke, were forced to strip before they were bundled into the lake, where they drowned.

The gang allegedly stole their clothes, jewellery, and cellphones. Police divers found the bodies.

The accused have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

During their last appearance, the court heard that one of the accused was admitted to hospital.

Robert Xaba, for Ndlovu, told the court his client was sent to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital because he was having difficulty breathing and was suffering from chest pains.

Xaba said medical staff at Johannesburg Central prison had given Xaba medication and conducted tests, suspecting he may suffer from asthma.
