We are confident that the taxi rape case will be solved - Gauteng MEC for safety

Gauteng MEC for Community Safety Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane says eight women who have been victims of Taxi rape have come forward with information.

The reason we want them to come forward is not only for them to give us information but for them to get assistance in terms of counseling and medical attention.

She says the women were refereed to Ikhaya Lethemba for medical attention as well as counseling. She says their forensic team have attended to seven women who were admitted at Ikhaya LeThemba.

One of the eight women suffered a nervous breakdown after the ordeal and could not be admitted, says Nkosi-Malobane.

She says three suspects have been brought in for questioning. The vehicle linked to the incidents was also apprehended as well as the driver. Nkosi-Malobane says the driver was found not to be linked to the incidents.

An ID parade will be held in the coming week to identify the three suspects currently in police custody.

Based on some of the information they are giving us, we are confident that we will be able to crack this case.
