According to Johannesburg district police spokesperson Captain Xoli Mbele, Rakgaleye was accused of rape and stabbing a 49-year-old woman in a field near the Mall of the South, along Swartkoppies Road, on March 21. 

Furthermore, Mbele stated that the victim was selling maize plants next to the taxi rank. She went to the field in order to fetch water when she was engaged by the suspect, who choked and dragged her to the field, where he raped her. When he had finished, he told her that it was better to kill her because they knew each other. 

“She had various stab wounds in her upper body, and he left her lying there, thinking that she was dead,” said Mbele. 

However, the woman hardly managed to crawl to the taxi stand in Orange Farm, next to the mall south.

The taxi driver who was present at that time on the stand called an ambulance. She told them everything and gave the description of the suspect wearing the cultural Lesotho national blanket. A group of Lesotho nationals went into the field looking for the suspect and arrested him,” said Mbele.

When police arrested Rakgaleye, his blanket was soaked with blood. 

The woman spent a month recovering in hospital.

Police of Africa thanked Orange Farm taxi rank drivers next to the Mall of the South for calling an ambulance, and the Lesotho nationals who handed over the suspect to the police, said Mbele. 

“A good working relationship between the police and the community will stop the escalation of crime in our community,” added Mbele.

Rakgaleye last appeared in court, in March, after his arrest and was later remanded in police custody.
