Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
Two men have been arrested following the discovery of a cellphone video clip showing them taking turns to rape an unconscious 18-year-old girl.
The victim's drink had allegedly been spiked.
Police yesterday pounced on the men at their respective homes in the crime-ridden KaNyamazane township east of Nelspruit.
The girl told police that she never felt or saw anyone raping her but saw a clip on the cellphone of a man who was willing to cooperate the with police.
She said she first knew about the rape ordeal when a friend told her that her male friend was in possession of the clip showing her being raped.
The victim had been walking along the street on Sunday afternoon when a group of men, who were enjoying a braai in a yard next to the Ziweni clinic, invited her to join them.
"They gave her meat as well as ciders. After a while she felt dizzy and asked for a place to sleep. She was offered a place and immediately fell asleep. That's when they took turns raping her," said KaNyamazane police spokesman, Captain Phillip Fakude yesterday.
One of the girls who was also with the men asked the victim if she did not feel people raping her while she was fast asleep.
She denied having heard or seen anyone having sex with her, but was shocked when the girl revealed that she had seen three men having sex with her in a cellphone video clip.
An arrangement was then made for her to meet the man who had the clip. He vowed to cooperate with the police provided he was protected.
Fakude said police also found out that the clip had been sent to members of the public and to several pupils in the area.
A local school, Sintintile High, was last year embroiled in a sex scandal after claims that a sex video of students was distributed to fellow students.
