Margate – A man suspected of raping a 12-year-old girl from Nkampani on Saturday night, was stoned to death by an angry mob at Ngwemabala.
According to police spokesman Captain Gerald Mfeka, the man, 28-year-old Simiso Ngilande, suffered severe injuries and died at the scene.
The mob accused him of several rapes and housebreakings in the area. The last straw was the alleged kidnapping and rape of the child, which prompted the mob to take the law into its own hands. The community accused Ngilande of kidnapping the girl from her home and dragging her naked through the bushes to his house, where he raped her. He then took her to another location where he raped her again. On Sunday morning he released her. – CNS.
