The case was registered at the Lyttelton police station in Pretoria and later transferred to Thohoyandou for investigation.

And he started taking her clothing of [sic] and she kept quite [sic] and did oral sex. He took the condom and put it on his penis and penetrated her."

“She tried to stop him during the oral sex but he did not stop. She just let it happen as he was stronger than her. She was crying as it was painful. When he finished, he got off and held her and told her to sleep on the same day at 12:00.” 

Following the news, singer and poet  Ntsiki Mazwai, actress Zenande Mfenyana and radio personality Penny Lebyane all tweeted support for Zamar.
