Nikiwe Ngoma(not her real name) was raped by 5 taxi drivers during their early morning strike.
According to a police statement the female said she boarded a taxi in Tembisa, Ivory Park, at around four o’clock. The taxi was supposed to take her to Kempton Park but it ended up on the R562 where 5 drivers took turns to rape her.
They told her she knew about the strike and the only reason she went out is to find a good man. Nikiwe was going to a job interview and she thought if she catch a very early taxi she would beat the strike. “She was not aware the strike had started already”. Said her older sister who said she was shocked when she saw her sister coming back only six-hour later crying.
“She didn’t wanna open the case it took me five hours to convince her, she thought people won’t believe her story”. Continued her sister.
This was Nikewe’s first job interview. She just got her marketing and graduated last month.
