PRETORIA - The woman who was tortured and mutilated by the man dubbed the Modimolle monster will take the stand for the 4th consecutive day in the North Gauteng High Court on Friday.

Her three alleged rapists are standing trial alongside her estranged husband, Johan Kotze.

The lawyer for one of the alleged rapists, Andries Sithole, said his client did not rape Bonnette, but only pretended to.

This was because Sithole said he feared for his life.

Jan van Rooyen said on the day Bonnete was attacked, Sithole and two others were at Kotze's house doing work.

Sithole claimed Kotze pointed a gun at them and forced them to hide until his wife arrived.

The alleged Modimolle monster then threatened to kill them, if they did not have sex with his wife.

But Bonnette disputed Sithole's testimony and said Kotze did not force them into anything and also that the rape was real.

Johan Kotze admitted to assaulting Ina Bonnette, but is also accused of orchestrating her rape and murdering her son.
