Kotze denies ordering Bonnette's rape
The so-called ‘Modimolle Monster’ said he never asked his three co-accused to rape his estranged wife.
JOHANNESBURG - The man dubbed the 'Modimolle Monster' on Wednesday denied claims by his co-accused that he forced them at gunpoint to rape his estranged wife.
Johan Kotze has confessed to mutilating and torturing Ina Bonnette in January 2012, but he denies killing her 19-year-old son.
He told the court that accused number two, Andries Sithole, came to him in prison asking for personal details about Bonnette.
Kotze said Sithole made up stories that he got from the media.
Sithole's version of events corroborates Bonnette's testimony about Kotze's part in her sexual assault.
The major point of contention is that Sithole and others claim they pretended to rape Bonnette, while she said it did happen.
According to Sithole, Kotze threatened that he would kill them if they did not do as he ordered.
On Tuesday, Kotze accused Bonnette of cheating on him.
He claimed he saw her caressing another man.
The trial was postponed in the North Gauteng High Court.
