‘I Raped 29 Women & Girls Since 2010’: Depraved Serial Rapist Makes Chilling Confession…Says There Are Many More

A serial ra_pist who is facing charges of ra_ping at least 60 women and girls in a 10-year campaign of terror had pleaded guilty to ra_ping 29 of the victims. The three youngest victims were 12-year-olds.

South African Bongani Given Thulani Lucky Masuku pleaded guilty to the charges on Wednesday morning at the North Gauteng High Court, sitting at the Benoni Magistrate’s Court. He revealed that he targeted homes around Soshanguve in Pretoria, as well as Winterveld, Itsoseng and Ikageng in North West.

The Independent Online reports,

After forcing entry into homes, members of the gang would take turns ra_ping the youngest women or girls while assaulting, shooting and robbing other relatives.

Masuku’s crime spree started in 2010 and ended last year when he was caught in Atteridgeville, west of Pretoria.

….He cut a lonely figure in court on Wednesday, where he opted to admit to the crimes he remembered committing.

Masuku listened attentively and sought clarity about some of the crimes he was charged with. At one point, he asked why the charge sheet did not entail addresses of where he allegedly committed the crimes.

After it was explained to him that some of them were committed in open spaces, he seemed to recall and pleaded guilty.

Proceedings were expected to continue on Thursday as the 126 counts detailed in a 68-page charge sheet against Masuku were just too many for the court to go through in one day. He was expected to plead to more ra_pes, aggravated assaults and attempted murders.
