A 23-year-old man hailed a communal taxi in eastern Pretoria (Gauteng Province, South Africa) on Friday, May 19. When he entered the taxi, which was traveling along Solomon Mahlangu Drive towards Pretoria CBD, there were three young female passengers inside the taxi.

The taxi changed direction and someone demanded he sit in the front seat. He was kidnapped and drugged, injected with an unknown substance and passed out.

Police spokesperson Captain Colette Weilbach says, “He stated that he woke up in an unfamiliar room on a single bed. The female suspects then allegedly forced the man to drink an energy drink‚ before taking turns raping him numerous times a day.”

On Sunday afternoon, semi-naked, he was dropped off in an open field in Benoni, a city on the East Rand in the South African province of Gauteng. He flagged down a passing car. He received medical treatment.

Rape and sexual violence are at critical levels in South Africa. It is estimated that more than half-a-million rapes are committed annually in the country, against both men and women.

Wellbach adds, “The South African Police Service (SAPS) take all sexual offenses seriously regardless of gender.

“The Tshwane Central Cluster FCS assures all victims of these types of crimes that they will carry out robust investigations to bring offenders to justice.”

  1. South Africa has become a sick and violent place since the African National Congress took over. Murder and rape are the order of the day. In fact, murder and rape of white people is actually considered a patriotic activity by the ANC.

    1. @SrAgri “In fact, murder and rape of white people is actually considered a patriotic activity by the ANC”.

      Is that a crime or a form of justice?

      If whites are going through that, which of course is highly doubtful. Why don’t they just leave? Nobody is forcing them to stay.

    2. Guess we are conveniently forgetting the history of raping , pillaging and murdering over the entire continent by those peace loving Europeans before “they” took over their own country.

      1. Most of the black population of South Africa immigrated into the country during the 43 years of Apartheid government after the Boer farmers, Afrikaners, and European investors had made the country the most prosperous in all of Africa. The ANC did not take over “their own country”. The white Afrikaners did have a secondary claim to the country, but the ANC has a tertiary claim to the country.

        The native tribes are not the ones murdering, torturing, and raping white people.

    1. The ANC has already had decades. Over those decades, they have steadily ramped up the murder, torture, and rape of both black and white people, with special emphasis on the murder, torture, and rape of Boers, which is considered a patriotic activity.

      In the last 26 years, more black people have been killed by the government than during the 43 years of apartheid.

      In the last 26 years, thousands of white people have been murder with the complicit support of the government.

      Maybe if the ANC kills everyone in the country, the damage of apartheid will be undone?
