Johannesburg - Gauteng police have confirmed they are investigating a case of assault against members of the Ivory Park Taxi Association.
This is after Ivory Park resident Busisiwe Ngwenya was dragged out of her home, beaten and stripped while begging for mercy in full view of her neighbours.
Three men, allegedly from the taxi association, ransacked Ngwenya’s home in search of her 21-year-old brother Simphiwe, and when Ngwenya questioned them on what right they had to go into her house, they assaulted her and her daughter Bonakele.
Gauteng police head of corporate communications Brigadier Neville Malila said: “An indecent assault case that was registered at Ivory Park police station is under investigation. A witness statement was taken from a witness, and a medical report was obtained from the complainant.
“The suspects were named and are known, and their work addresses (Ivory Park Taxi Association) were visited on three occasions, but they were not found.”
He also confirmed that a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm was opened by Ngwenya’s neighbour Mohale Mahasha, who was assaulted by Simphiwe.
Mahasha had told The Star that when he went to the police station to lay a charge against Simphiwe, he was told by officers to report it at the association because Simphiwe was a taxi driver.
