A 17-year-old Soweto teenager who was filmed being gang-raped has received medical and psychological treatment.

The shocking and graphic 10-minute long cellphone video captures the 17-year-old girls' distress as she is repeatedly raped by the seven boys.

The footage was filmed by one of her attackers.

On Wednesday, the girl was found in the company of a 37-year-old man in Doornkop, southwest of Johannesburg.

The man has been arrested.

The seven boys who raped the teenager were arrested on Tuesday.

The victim sat with her head down at the Dobsonville police station as Gauteng Community Safety MEC Faith Mazibuko spoke to her.  

The MEC said the teenager, who has the mental capacity of a four-year-old, was calm but hungry.

“She says she was kept as a sex-slave.”

Mazibuko also visited the victim’s mother.

According to the MEC, the mother had reported the girl missing on several occasions, but she would always come home.

“This time she did not report her missing. The mother blames the justice system.”

Meanwhile, police are investigating possible negligence against the victim’s mother.
