Gang-rape victim runs out of court

SHE had waited for four years for that moment but when it finally came, Buyisiwe stormed out of court before the judge finished convicting seven of the eight men who raped her.

After numerous delays, Thabiso Thukwane, 24, Sello Mohlala, 24, Oupa Mohlala, 23, Bongani Nhlapho, 22, Moeketsi Mphuthi, 21, Kabelo Mwale, 25, and Mojalefa Seleka, 22, were found guilty of rape and indecent assault.

The eighth man, known only as Tsepo, is still at large.

Buyisiwe was gang-raped in Tembisa in 2005. The matter will return to court on July 28 for mitigation. - Dudu Busani
