The Randburg Magistrate’s Court has sentenced a man involved in the 2017 gang rape of a woman in Diepsloot to life imprisonment. Mandulo Moyo’s conviction was secured by the use of DNA evidence.
According to the provincial spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Phindi Mjonondwane, on April 28, 2017, the victim was asleep with her then two-month-old baby when Moyo, along with two other assailants knocked on the door and pretended to be police officers.
Upon opening the door the young mother was hit with a brick on her head. She was knocked unconscious and once she woke up, she found one of the men raping her and another of the men raped her thereafter.
