Woman 'beaten, stripped' by taxi men

18 October 2013, 12:43

Johannesburg - A woman and her minibus taxi driver brother allege they were assaulted by members of the Ivory Park Taxi Association, South Africa, after her brother was accused of stabbing a neighbour, The Star reported on Friday.

Busisiwe Ngwenya said she was dragged out of her house, beaten and stripped naked in full view of her neighbours on Saturday when she questioned members of the association.

Ngwenya said three men arrived at their home and claimed to be from the association after a stabbing complaint was reported to the association instead of the police. Her brother was handcuffed in the back of a car and when she asked questions, a man slapped her.

"They dragged me outside... One wanted to tear my blouse off, but couldn't and they took off my trousers and panties, opened my legs and started laughing," she said.

She said the men sped off with her brother and she opened a case of assault.

Her brother was being treated for injuries at Tembisa Hospital.

The association's spokesperson Moses Matlaila said an association member was suspended after allegations that he was involved in the attack, and that they would work with the police.

"It's so disturbing... for a man to undress a woman and laugh at her. I'm very apologetic to the family... I'm sorry, so very sorry," he told the newspaper.
