After searching for five months, she found one of the men. She reported him to the police but he is now walking free!
The woman, who didn’t want to be named, told Daily Sun that the cops arrested the man but released him two days later, telling her that she needed to find witnesses to the crime.
She said she was raped while attending a friend’s party in a tent in Soweto on 7 July.
“A group of young men dragged me outside. None of my friends helped me because it was already 4am and they were scared of the men.
“They took me to a dark area where one of them beat and kicked me. They then left me in a shack with two men, who took turns to rape me,” she said.
When the men released her, she went to open a case at Kliptown Police Station. The suspects were never caught, but she said last Wednesday she finally saw one of them again.
“I received a tip-off that one of the rapists was at the shack where I was raped. I went to investigate and saw him, but he ran away.
“Somebody saw him at Maponya Mall on Friday. I went to the cops and he was arrested, but on Monday they phoned me to say the man was released because I had no witnesses. I wanted justice but now I am living in fear,” she said.
Captain Nomvula Mbense said the man was released because the woman never saw a doctor. “The suspect was, however, ordered by the court to get a blood test,” Mbense said.
She accused the victim of having been drunk when she opened the rape case.
