Krugersdorp rape horror: protesters demand justice as suspects appear in court

Police Minister Bheki Cele met with the families of the rape survivors at the Alexandra Police Station on Sunday.

Cele said that he had asked the forensic science laboratory to fast-track DNA testing to successfully link the suspects of the Krugersdorp gang rape attack to the crime.

Commissioner for detectives and forensic services Khosi Senthumule said that some of the suspects who were expected to appear in court on Monday were not on the national DNA database.


"Remember, these are foreigners, so not all of them will be on our database. The team is working around the clock and we believe that by the latest on Friday, we will have the results of their DNA and we’ll be able to match them to the DNA found at the crime scene,” she assured.
