KZN police spokesman Captain Khephu Ndlovu said police can confirm that one of the three members of the group will be arrested.


“The outcome of the investigation will indicate whether other arrests should be made. These suspects are well known, so it will be easy to make an arrest,” said Ndlovu.


Asked why it had taken the police so long to make an arrest, Ndlovu said: “Police don’t arrest to investigate, they investigate to arrest.”


“We don’t want to leave anything out. We want to make sure that the suspect is put in jail for a very long time.”

The arrest comes after a 19-year-old woman laid a charge of rape against the group.

According to the woman, she had been picked up by the group from her home in Umlazi, Durban on 25 March and they went to an apartment in Morningside.

The woman allegedly drank only one glass of alcohol before blacking out. She woke up and allegedly found one of the members on top of her without a condom on.

She alleged the other two were standing near them, naked.
The woman’s lawyer, Trevor Nkosi, said they will wait for police to inform them once they have made the arrest.
KZN Department of Social Development spokeswoman Ncumisa Fandesi-Ndelu said women should put pressure on the police regarding the matter so that justice can be served.
Gender rights activist Lisa Vetten said arresting a rape suspect can be difficult.
“Police should make an arrest soon.
“A delayed arrest tends to generate a sense of being unsafe,” Vetten said.
When asked what happens to a victim when suspects are not arrested, Vetten said: “It increases the victim’s sense of fear. It gives them the impression that police don’t want to help.”
