“According to the victim, her stepfather raped her in his house while her mother was attending a funeral in the Eastern Cape. She said Mkwedini threatened her with a cane knife.”

Zulu raped the Etete woman in January last year. The victim was walking to her aunt’s house when Zulu forced her into the nearby bushes.

“Following the incident she phoned her husband to inform him. According to his statement, the woman fainted after telling him the story.”

Zulu was arrested after he was spotted by the woman at the Shakaskraal Clinic.
