A Krugersdorp woman who was raped several months ago, has recounted how the news of the rape of eight women in the West Rand town last week, took her right back to her ordeal.

The women were raped after a gang of armed men believed to be zama zamas accosted them and their film crew, while they were shooting a video at an unused mine dump in West Village last Thursday.

The crew was also robbed.

Police have since carried out a series of raids in the area.

More than 60 adults were arrested last Friday and Saturday alone.

They made their first appearances in court on charges of being in the country illegally on Monday when their cases were postponed to Wednesday, for an ID parade to be conducted so that they could secure legal representation.
