Port Elizabeth - Rape survivor and Gauteng businesswoman Andy Kawa is expected to testify in the Port Elizabeth High Court this week where she is suing the South African Police Service (SAPS) for damages just short of R6 million.
Almost eight years after a brutal attack that lasted 16 hours, Kawa is seeking justice by suing SAPS.
The ongoing civil claim resumed in the Port Elizabeth High Court this week.
On December 9, 2010, Kawa was allegedly abducted while walking along Kings Beach, held hostage and gang-raped for a period of 15 to 16 hours in sand dunes. Kawa managed to escape from her abductors the next day.
In 2012, Kawa pointed out her alleged assailants during a protest march along the same beachfront, but the charges against the two men were withdrawn when DNA evidence failed to link the men to the brutal attack.
