The teenager who cannot be named as he is a minor, previously opted to abandon his bail application. The 15-year-old is accused of sexual assaulting and raping eight minors.

‘’What is more traumatic is that the victims of the case are connected to the perpetrator. While GBV continues to spiral out of control across the country, despite various empty promises made by President Cyril Ramaphosa, residents of Bonteheuwel and all those connected to this case can rest assured that I will follow through till the very end of this case, we will deliver justice not just for the victims but for the other 84 999 residents of Bonteheuwel that seek it,’’ said Angus McKenzie, Bonteheuwel ward councillor.

The case has been postponed to 23 April 2024. He will be remanded in custody and held at the Pollsmoor Prison juvenile section.
