Sixteen girls were allegedly forced by Nigerians to each have sex with more than a dozen men a day.
Sixteen girls have been rescued from a human trafficking ring in Kempton Park, eNCA reported on Friday night.
The girls told officers they had endured sexual abuse at the hands of hundreds of men, the Kempton Express reported.
“A 15-year-old girl said she was brought here by Nigerians two weeks back and they promised her they were going to give her a job – that’s how she got here,” Gauteng police commissioner Major General Suzan de Lange told eNCA.
eNCA reported that inside the house new and used condoms were strewn across the floors. The filthy bedrooms had more than one bed and there was a mattress in a corner in the kitchen. The young women told Hawks officers and others from the SA Police Service that they were abused, drugged and starved.
They said they were forced to sleep with more than 15 men a day each and the clients would pay between R50 and R70.
The police officers arrested four men, found drugs and pornographic material as they swept through the house. The young women sat outside the house crying and comforting each other as they told reporters of their capture and abuse.
Hawks head Major General Mthandazo “Berning” Ntlemeza was on the scene and explained that they had discovered that some of the victims were from Soweto and their parents had possibly had no idea of what had happened to their daughters.
