Rape Obscene

I was 5 months pregnant when he raped me

A woman who was raped by convicted rapist, Johannes Nokeri shared her story in court. She stated:

"I was 5 months pregnant and did not have the power to fight back. He covered my face and pointed a gun at me. I am relieved after the sentencing but the pain won't go away".

A 36 year old victim, who was 32 when she was raped said Nokeri attacked her when she was waiting for a bus to work.

"I woke up near Babeligi industrial area after being hit on the head with a gun. It's difficult for me to speak about this because I'm trying to move on".

Judge Kgoele described Nokiri as a person with no respect for women. She said the courts had a responsibility to protect the community against people like Nokiri and the sentence was a strong message.

Johannes was sentenced to 191 years in prison.

When you read stories like this you ask yourself why a person would choose to be so barbaric. What makes a man believe he can whatever he wants without ever considering another's emotions. What causes this level of cruelty? Is it upbringing?

I'm very saddened by this story.
