Angry residents picketed against bail of alleged rapist

The house where the young girl was allegedly raped.

Lucky Linda Madonsela, who is popularly known as Toy, appeared in court last Monday. He was arrested on Friday March 23 on suspicion of raping the minor.

The incident happened at the crime-infested section of Extension 11 in Emjindini.

Angry community members picketed outside the Barberton Magistrate’s Court yesterday when

Madonsela reappears for a formal bail application.

They protested to demand that the court rejects his bail application.

According to a community member who preferred to remain anonymous, Madonsela lured the unsuspecting girl by sending her to a nearby shop to buy him a cigarette.

She said on her return, he told her to go put the cigarette inside his house.

He then followed her and allegedly raped her.

“As a community, we strongly condemn what Madonsela did and we will continue to show our dissatisfaction and anger by picketing outside the court. We will do so until the end of the case. We want justice to prevail and a harsh sentence to be imposed on him. A life sentence will satisfy us. This old man has already destroyed the life of the girl,” said the angry community member.
