The two men arrested for the rape and murder of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen will apply for bail today. 22-year-old Jonathan Davids and 21-year-old Johannes Kana will appear in the Bredasdorp Magistrates Court.

They are charged with raping and killing Booysen, who was 17-years-old when she died earlier this month. She was found brutally injured at a construction site after visiting a club in the town the previous evening. She died later in hospital after naming one of her alleged attackers.

At the pair’s last court appearance two weeks ago, magistrate Graham Cupido ruled that their faces should not be shown in the media because the State believes this could jeopardise the on-going investigation.

Last week Special Assignment focused on the national outrage following the brutal rape and subsequent death of Booysen and asked: Will this be the turning point in South Africa’s war against rape? The ruthless sexual assault of Booysen in the sleepy Western Cape Town of Bredasdorp this month unleashed public anger from many sectors throughout the country and abroad including the United Nations’ Human Rights Chief, Navi Pillay and the Ministry of Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana.

The bloody attack on Booysen – a gang rape and disembowelment of the teenager on a deserted construction site – was said to be so severe that police and hospital staff linked to the case had to receive counseling.
