She said she felt dizzy after drinking a glass of soft drink, and that when she regained consciousness, a man was raping her.

She was apparently taken to a rape victims' centre where she was checked by a doctor, and semen from different men was found in her.

Police have confirmed that the group's lawyer has contacted them and had promised to hand them over.

According to a police source, the group was playing hide-and-seek with both the police and the lawyer.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesman Major Thulani Zwane said no one had been arrested yet.

"The suspects in the case were supposed to hand themselves over to the police. We are still waiting for them," he said.


Zwane could not indicate when the warrant of arrest will be issued. The case is being handled by the Brighton Beach family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit.

It has also emerged that the group was not wanted only by police, but also by the landlord of their Morningside flat.

The three are said to have left the place in shambles. According to their former manager, who did not want to be named, the group damaged the blinds and carpet, and they owe about R5000 for water and electricity.

He said when he started working with them last year, they did not have money or a bank account and he offered to pay a deposit. He said before then, the group had stayed in his house for six months and used his studio.

"When I met them they had nothing. We hooked them up with gigs, and they started earning a living."

According to Ilanga newspaper, the group attempted to bribe the family of the 19-year-old with R70000 to drop the case, but the family turned it down.
