ANCWL supports Modimolle victim
Members of the ANCWL are at the North Gauteng High Court to show support for Ina Bonette.
PRETORIA - Members of the ANC Women's League (ANCWL) on Wednesday arrived at the North Gauteng High Court to show support for Ina Bonette, the alleged victim of the so-called 'Modimolle Monster'.
Bonette's estranged husband, Johan Kotze, is accused of mutilating and torturing her, orchestrating her gang-rape and killing her teenage son Conrad.
He allegedly held three of his employees at gunpoint and forced them to take turns raping his ex-wife.
Bonette began her testimony on Tuesday and is expected to be cross-examined on Wednesday.
A member of the ANCWL held a poster reading "Rot in jail".
The league's Sheila Mashita said she was shocked when she heard that a grinder was one of the tools used to mutilate Bonette.
Members of the media will not be allowed to tweet while Ina Bonnette is on the stand to help protect her dignity.
The case was postponed on Tuesday, when Bonette became too emotional to continue.
She made a strong witness in court and initially insisted on continuing when the judge asked if she needed a break.
She quietly wiped away tears during her testimony, as she described in detail how Kotze allegedly used tools to mutilate her before she was gang-raped by his co-accused Andries Sithole, Pieta Mohlane and Sello Mphaka.
Bonnette said Kotze told her he would kill her son Conrad, if he refused to have sex his mother.
Later, she heard Conrad begging for his life before he was shot dead.
Kotze himself cried several times during his estranged wife's testimony.
Bonette will on Wednesday continue her testimony by identifying graphic photographs of her mutilated body, as well as those of her dead son.
