A mob assaulted and killed 28-year-old Simiso Ngilande because they suspected he had raped a 12-year-old girl from Ngwemabala, Gcilima, last Sunday morning. Margate police confirmed the killing, and said the group of people who killed him, accused Ngilande of several rapes and housebreakings in the area. The incident that drove them to take the law into their own hands started on Saturday, when he allegedly kidnapped the young girl from her home, and dragged her naked through the bushes to his house, where he allegedly rasped her. Afterwards, he took her elsewhere and raped her again. She told her family, and the police were notified.
