sapsNews24 reports that a Limpopo teacher who was kidnapped and gang raped – allegedly by a group including two of her former pupils – has been found dumped and tied up on the side of a road outside Mokopane.  

Limpopo police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe confirmed a “massive manhunt” has been launched to find the suspects involved in the attack on the 28-year-old woman, who teaches at a high school near Marken in the outskirts of Lephalale.  The attackers allegedly broke into her home on Friday while she was asleep.  She was tied up and loaded into the boot of her car.  After police were alerted, a search ensued.  Ngoepe indicated:  “Preliminary investigations have since revealed that two of the suspects involved in this chain of crime incidents are well known to the victim as she previously taught them at the same school.  They are also [living] in this village.”  Cases of burglary, kidnapping and rape are under investigation.
