The woman’s ordeal was still not over, however. Williams took her back to Jonkers’ residence flanked by her dogs and equipped with the bag of faeces, said Sylvester.
After collecting Jonkers, they went to the residence of a third accused, Princess Gobie, where Williams allegedly started interrogating Jonkers based on allegations made by the woman that she was another of “Jubee’s” lovers.
According to Sylvester, Williams started strangling Jonkers with a dog chain while she questioned the woman about the allegations. A physical fight ensued. When it stopped, Williams threw more dog faeces on the ground, telling the woman to get on her knees and eat it.
After doing so, the woman apologised to Gobie and offered to give her compensation of R200, said Sylvester. The woman then went home to bathe and rinse her mouth.
“She felt violated. The faeces made her feel sick. The next day she started bleeding as though she were on her period. This lasted for two or three days,” said the policeman.
The state opposed bail for Williams but agreed on bail of R1,000 each for Jonkers and Gobie.
Williams’s lawyer argued that the investigating officer was opposing bail for Williams only because of the media attention the case had received. Sylvester denied this but admitted that in previous assault cases he did not oppose bail.
According to the lawyer, suspected murderers and rapists were regularly released on bail but his client had received exceptional treatment because of the media frenzy.
He said Williams had been given notice by Tygerberg Hospital. She was the only breadwinner and her boyfriend was allegedly a member of the 28s gang. Her mother was taking care of her nine-year-old son.
The case was postponed until Monday.
