In his plea statement‚ Mokoena told the court how he and two accomplices raped a woman in the presence of her mother after they boarded their taxi on Main Reef Road in 2016.
“My friend was driving and I was seated in the passenger section. I accosted the pair with a cigarette lighter and searched their bags‚ before taking their valuables‚” Mokoena said.
He said they pulled over at an ATM and he withdrew R300 from one of the victim’s bank accounts.
“I then returned to the taxi and raped the first complainant several times while the taxi was in motion. The second complainant‚ who was also in the taxi‚ was assaulted by one of my friends as she was attempting to fight while the rape was taking place.”
Mokoena detailed seven other incidents in which he and his accomplices picked up female commuters‚ raped and robbed them.
