Former president Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter Ndileka Mandela yesterday led a contingent of supporters who gave moral support to the Bronkhorstspruit domestic worker who was allegedly raped and sexually assaulted by Willem Kroukamp, her employer’s son, last week.

The 45-year-old Kroukamp, who is accused of raping the domestic worker and forcing her to perform sexual acts with dogs, appeared in the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate’s Court where he abandoned his bail application, citing issues of his own safety.
The incident allegedly took place at Kroukamp’s parents’ home in Raimar Park.
He is facing 10 charges including rape, malicious damage to property, kidnapping and sexual assault.
Ndileka, who also recently joined #MeToo global social media campaign and revealed that she was raped by her partner, said the 41-year-old woman needed all the support she can get. The global campaign encourages victims to disclose abuse.
