SOUTH Africa’s police have arrested 11 Tanzanians who allegedly gang-raped a 22 year-old Zimbabwean woman in South Africa while she was coming from work recently.
Zimbabwe Consul-General in South Africa Mr Batiraishe Mukonoweshuro yesterday said the suspects have since appeared in court following the alleged rape in Johannesburg.
“They have been arrested and taken to court. They appeared in court on May 16 and will appear again on June 20 at the Johannesburg Regional Court,” said Mr Mukonoweshuro. He said it was a relief that the suspects had been arrested.
Mr Mukonoweshuro said the rape victim was left in a traumatic state. “She is still traumatised and we decided to wait a bit for now. At least we are happy that her attackers have been arrested. We will try to give her time and at some point we will re-engage her,” he said.
Names of the suspects were not immediately available.
