Black cop in BMW preyed on girls in white areas for serial rape spree

A black police officer, Mokolo Molekoa, 30, stationed in a suburb of Johannesburg drove around in mostly white areas, offering women lifts in his BMW, after which he would rape them. In some cases he would gang rape them with accomplices.

Yesterday Molekoa was found guilty omn 35 of 46 charges, including the rape of 16 women and girls. These charges included nine of kidnapping, seven of robbery, two of attempted robbery and one of theft.

In at least one case, as previously reported, the victim was unable to walk after being gang raped by the black policeman and fellow accused Ephraim Mazwi, 29, and Maphuthi Molokomme, 27.

Molekoa’s crimes took place between March 2011 and June 2012. In his testimony, the police officer claimed that the women had indicated their consent by getting into his car or that they had otherwise had relationships with him.

However, Judge Peter Mabuse of the Johannesburg High Court rejected this evidence, saying “it was highly unlikely”. It was also “most unlikely that any man would leave his girlfriend in the middle of a field or point a firearm at her”. He described Molekoa’s evidence as “unsupported fabrications”.

Mabuse acquitted Molekoa on the ten charges of kidnapping and one of rape, as he felt the state had not proven beyond reasonable doubt that the women had been forced to enter the policeman’s BMW.

The case has been postponed until 22 January when reports on the state of the victims will be heard by the judge.

The Star newspaper in Johannesburg compiled the following list of rapes in what it describes as “Molekoa’s reign of terror”:

    Do white people in South-Africa accept lifts from black guys unknown to them? Sounds pretty crazy.

    • Tine

      Guys?? Not guys! He’s a policeman! Do whites in the US not obey the police?

    • Andreas Meyer

      Apparently some were forced into that car.

  • Jon Jonsson

    The article said he offred them “a lift” in “his BMW”, I don’t know if he was on duty or not when this happened. In any civilized country people have a right to turn down a lift, even if the police offer it.
    Don’t get me wrong, I was in no way justifying what he did. But from what I’ve read about this country lately pretty much indicates that getting into a car with some random black guy puts your life in danger.

    Piece of sh1t !!

    Stop being so bigoted and racist!!!

    This lovely black man was just partaking in indigenous cultural practices that you white racists don’t understand. Diversity means accepting different cultures and their customs. Just because rape is an anathema to your narrow-minded and Eurocentric idea of civilization, doesn’t mean you should oppress this fine and noble black man who wishes to practice this cultural phenomenon.

    Hooray for the end of apartheid! They’re just like us but with different skin color.

    That’s what they think with, their muh-diks, just can’t keep them in their pants, filthy animals.

    The key phrase he says that speaks volumes into the Negro mind is…

    They accepted a lift, so that means consensual sex (a.k.a. they wanted muh dik).
