ELSEWHERE in today'sSowetan we report on the anguish of a rape victim who is being terrorised by the alleged associates of her jailedtormentors.

The victim's family say they were raided by two gunmen who wanted to sort her out for sending their friends to jail.

The death threats came as the woman was beginning to pick up the pieces after waiting for a staggering nine years for her molesters to be tried and jailed earlier this year.

The latest development marks a double whammy for a woman who lived in fear for so long while the suspects roamed the streets freely.

The law must protect the woman at all costs while it relentlessly pursues the two gunmen. It needs to do so to encourage other rape victims to come forward.
