Woman and a 13-year-old raped

Another two rapes occurred and this time a 13-year-old girl and a woman were raped.

On Saturday, September 2 at 19:00 a woman was raped in MNS squatter camp after she left a tavern.

She was with a person when she left and said she was going to go to sleep, and then she continued to drink with another person.

He was the one who was buying alcohol for the woman; she then left and went outside to the bathroom. A fight started, involving the woman and the suspect managed to pull her into his mother’s house where he raped her.

In a separate case on Tuesday, August 29 at about 20:15 a case docket of rape was opened at Phola SAPS whereby a 13-year-old child was allegedly raped by three men.

The 13-year-old’s mother said that she started noticing that there was something wrong with her child on Saturday, August 27 when her son came to her and informed her that his sister was crying and when she asked her what was wrong she said that she had a headache and fever.


Learners from Makause Combined School, teachers and family members of the rape victim gathered outside Ogies Police Station on Monday, September 4 demonstrating their anger.

The next day the mother discovered that there was a video trending on social media showing her daughter being raped by three men and she immediately went to school to enquire about the video.

When the daughter was questioned by the mother and principal she admitted that she was raped by three men on August 9 at Tycoon. She was on her way home from church when the men approached her and took her handbag and dragged her to one of the men’s rooms where he assaulted her and raped her at knife point.

Due to the video that was made the police were able to arrest the suspects. The men are aged between 19 and 30 years old. The men were detained at Phola SAPS and appeared in Witbank Magistrates Court on Thursday, August 31 for their first appearance and were denied bail.

On Monday, September 4 the three rapists appeared in Witbank Magistrates Court once again and they were denied bail.

The case has been postponed until September 11.
