Lost Girls of South Africa


Thokozani fell victim to the increasingly prevalent problem of gang rape. She was dragged off the street by a group of boys, one of whom then raped her.  But when the case was reported to the police they were shockingly unsympathetic, with the investigating officer telling her she would get AIDS, and that she must "like penises".  Thokozani tells her stroy below - the first part of the clip below is a section taken from the main documentary, but the second half was not included in the film, and shows what happened a few weeks later when the crew were filming Thokozani and her mum in their shack, and a friend arrived with some very shocking news.
