Alleged rapists blame 'Modimolle monster'
The men accused of raping Ina Bonette say they were forced to participate in the crime by Johan Kotze.
JOHANNESBURG - Ina Bonette's alleged rapists on Friday told the North Gauteng High Court that her husband, the man dubbed the 'Modimolle monster', forced them at gunpoint to sexually assault her and threatened to kill them.
Johan Kotze has admitted to torturing and mutilating Bonnette and is also accused of murdering her 19-year-old son, Conrad, in January.
Lawyers representing Andries Sithole, Pieta Mohlane and Frans Mphaka questioned Bonette about their clients' willingness to participate in the crime.
The three were doing house work at Kotze's house on the day of the attack.
They said Kotze used a revolver to force them to rape her, but Bonette told the court the only firearm Kotze used was a .22 rifle, which he pointed at her.
The cross-examination was grilling and Bonette asked for a short break to gather her thoughts.
