Instead of happily beginning a new life as an university student, a young KwaZulu-Natal woman has fallen victim to criminals
A woman was gang-raped while on her way to register at the Tshwane University of Technology campus in Soshanguve early on Tuesday, Gauteng police said.
“She was walking at around 3am with four of her friends to go start queuing and register at the campus when they were attacked by five unknown men,” spokesman Warrant Officer Mathews Nkoadi said.
“They dragged her to the bushes and raped her.”
The victim came from KwaZulu-Natal.
The men also robbed her of her R1,000 registration fee and a cellphone.
No arrests had been made, Nkoadi said.
About a third of South African men have committed sexual assault.
An incredible one in every four South African women are survivors of domestic violence
