Girl (17) 'repeatedly raped'

A 17-year-old girl was gang-raped and further assaulted by six men at the Magogong Village in Taung, North West police said on Sunday.

Sergeant Kelebogile Moiloa said a 21-year-old man who knew the girl was arrested on Saturday following the attack, which happened in a bushy area in the Dipitshing section around 2.30pm on Friday.

She said the six men also tried to cut the teenager's throat but she sustained only a minor injury.

The minor was walking alone when she was approached by the 21-year-old, who asked for her phone. When she told him she did not have one, the man replied that she must pay him whatever money she had.

"The minor did not suspect anything and kept on walking," said Moiloa.

"While she was walking, five men approached her from the back."

According to information received, each man had a knife. They forcefully undressed her before raping her.

"The guy who was familiar to her went back to her and [again] repeatedly raped her."

It was alleged that one of the men cut her throat with a knife. He also tied her hands behind her back and to a tree.

"The minor was then left helplessly in pain with her hands tied at the back until a passerby came to her rescue by taking her to Taung District Hospital for medical treatment."

Moiloa said the matter was reported to the police and the minor identified the man she knew.

He was expected to appear in the Taung Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Further investigations would continue, said Moiloa.

Wife catch husband raping step daughter

An Ivory Park man was on the run on Monday after his wife caught him raping his 10-year-old step-daughter, police said.

Warrant Officer Neldah Hlase said the girl's mother left the two together on Sunday while she went shopping.

On her return at 2pm, "the woman thought it was a dream" when she walked in and saw what her naked husband was doing in their bedroom.

He appeared not to have initially noticed that his wife was present.

Hlase said the girl told her mother that it was not the first time.

He used to rape her then give her money to keep quiet.

The man was on the run, said Hlase.

Boy (6) Raped at School

Crime Date: 25 January 2011
Reported Date: 3 February 2011

Boy (6) Raped at School


An angry Orange Farm mother is demanding answers after her six-year-old son who was raped at school.

The woman said that she phoned the principal of Makiwane Combined School last week, after her child told her that he had been raped by an older boy.

The boy was then further allegedly traumatised, when the deputy principal allegedly took the boy from classroom to classroom to identify the perpetrator.

The school has also been lambasted for failing to notify police about the matter before Wednesday.

"They said they will handle the matter but so far nothing has been done for my son," she said.

Women and Men Against Child Abuse spokesperson Miranda Jordan spoke to the deputy principal about what had happened.

"She and the principal have committed an offence by not reporting it and their action was very harmful in taking this boy from classroom to classroom to identify an older boy," said Jordan.

Meanwhile, the Gauteng Department of Education said it is sending a team to the school on Thursday to investigate the rape allegations.

Counselling will also be offered to the boy and his family.

Mpumalanga police were on Monday still looking for a man whose tongue was partly bitten off when he allegedly tried to rape a woman near Hazyview.

The man ran off and the woman alerted the police. They sent the piece of tongue to a hospital for forensic tests, but Hlathi would not stipulate which hospital.

"We hope that someone will see this man and help us catch him."

British tourist raped in SA

A British tourist was raped while walking in an inner city nature reserve in Bloemfontein this week, Free State police said on Thursday.

Captain Rulene Kuhn said the 51-year-old woman went for a walk in the small nature reserve on Monday morning when she was overpowered, allegedly by two men.

She was raped and robbed of her cellphone and some cash.

Free State police spokesperson Colonel Motantsi Makhele told the Volksblad newspaper that a police operation was held in the area hours after the incident.

Twenty people were arrested, of which five were known criminals to local police, as well as two illegal immigrants.

The Happy Valley reserve is a small nature reserve with a short walking route next to Free State House, the official residence of Free State Ppremier Ace Magashule.

The area is used by homeless people to overnight or spend the day.

The Volksblad reported that the woman was treated in a local hospital after the incident and discharged the same day.

Makhele said local police appointed a special investigating team to look into the matter.

Boy and 2 Men Rape Doctor

Crime Date: 30 October 2010
Reported Date: 2 November 2010

Boy and 2 Men Rape Doctor

A 16-year-old boy and two men appeared in court at the Mangaung One Stop Youth Centre in Bloemfontein following the rape of a doctor at the Pelonomi regional hospital in Bloemfontein over the weekend.

The two men, aged 24 and 29, and the boy face charges of attempted murder and assault. Their case was postponed to 9 November in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court.

The 35-year-old doctor was on duty at the hospital when she was overpowered by three men in a ward at the hospital on Saturday. They allegedly forced her into a room. One of them allegedly hit her over the head with a brick. She lost consciousness and all three allegedly raped her. Police said one of the three left a wallet at the scene.

The South African Medical Association (Sama) expressed its shock at the attack.

"Sama is deeply shocked by these reports. We once again make it very clear that our members are not safe at public institutions," chairman Dr Norman Mabasa said in a statement.

It was a "grim situation" that healthcare workers did not feel safe in institutions of care and were assaulted while carrying out their duties. He called on authorities, once again, to upgrade security in all public institutions for all healthcare workers.

The Health Professions Council of South Africa said it was outraged by the crime. Acting registrar and CEO Marella O'Reilly said it was the second attack this year. Two ambulance staff were attacked a few months ago on Johannesburg's West Rand while attending to an emergency.

"Healthcare practitioners give up their time and risk their safety to help others. It is sad and appalling that heroic individuals become the target of criminals who destroy the fabric of our society."

O'Reilly said there was a concern the attack would affect the profession's ability to attract new staff.

"We already have a shortage of healthcare professionals and the exodus of practitioners to other countries as a result of this type of incident."

The Democratic Alliance in the Free State said it was apparent the health department did not care about the safety of its personnel, after a provincial official admitted security at Pelonomi was poor.

The DA's provincial health spokesperson Basil Alexander said the party found it dreadful that the life of a young person, who had so much to offer to the community, had been devastated by an act of violence.

I'm raping you, no need for a condom

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 10 October 2008
Reported Date: 20 October 2010

I'm raping you, no need for a condom

He raped her - tearing off her clothes so violently that he broke the zipper on her jeans. And before he raped her, he forced her to touch him in a way that would make him “hot”. Her whole body shook as he violated her.

This was the testimony of a 35-year-old woman gave to the Pretoria Regional Court before it convicted Thandixolo Sayite, 31, on two charges of rape, and one each of robbery and kidnapping on Tuesday.

The victim was working on an RDP construction site on October 10, 2008 near Nellmapius.

She was talking on her cellphone, when a man ran up behind her.

The next thing she knew he was in front of her, demanding her phone.

The man then forced her into his car. He drove to Equestria, dragged her into the bushes and forced her onto her knees.

After he had raped her, he tried to use her phone to call a friend of his. When she gave him the wrong pin, he assaulted her - then raped her a second time. Sayite then left her and the frightened woman ran to Hans Strijdom Drive.

“An old man on a bicycle stopped and offered me his phone,” the woman said. Her boss drove out to find her next to the road. She reported the rape to the police and provided an identikit of her attacker.

On October 27 that year, she was in Nellmapius again, when she saw Sayite.

“I started to cry and called out,” she said. The community grabbed Sayite and assaulted him so badly that he spent 10 days in hospital.

Sayite was connected to the rape via DNA. However, he claimed that the victim was a prostitute who had agreed to have sex with him for money.

He said he ran away before paying her the R50 he owed her, but later returned as he felt guilty.

“But the prostitute had organised a mob who attacked me,” he claimed.

Magistrate Fikile Ntlati rejected Sayite’s version of events.

Defence lawyer Martin Botha argued that the accused, a painter in Silver Lakes, had already been punished as he was assaulted by the community and spent two years in jail awaiting trial.

State prosecutor Vusi Nonyane disagreed, adding that Sayite had refused to put on a condom when he raped the woman.

“He told her: ‘I’m raping you, no need for a condom’. Not only was she raped, but she didn’t know if she was contracting HIV,” Nonyane said.

Sayite will be sentenced on Thursday.
