Woman, 83, dies after beating, rape

Johannesburg - An 83-year-old woman has died after she was beaten and raped in the Sereni village outside Makhado at the weekend, Limpopo police said on Monday.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the woman was attacked in the early hours of Saturday.

"It is alleged that the pensioner was asleep when two suspects, who [had] covered their faces with balaclavas, forced [their way] into her room and demanded money," Mulaudzi said in a statement.

"The two then dragged the gogo to nearby bushes where they allegedly raped and assaulted her."

They left her in the bushes, returned to her house and set it alight, said Mulaudzi.

Community members who noticed the flames rushed to her house.

"They found her in a very bad condition," said Mulaudzi.

She was admitted to the Elim Hospital where she later died. No arrests had been made.

Jaco, nobody and definately not Steve or Sunette feels that a white pensioner is worth more than a black. You seem to miss the point of what they are trying to say and if you haven't got it yet you probably never will. This type of crime deserves the death penalty, publicly preverably.
