Orapa teen gang rape porn video posted to You-Tube

Botswana police are investigating gang rape pornography that was filmed at a house party in Orapa and then uploaded onto You-Tube.

Orapa police have rounded up four Letlhakane Senior Secondary School students who allegedly filmed themselves taking turns on a thirteen-year-old Orapa Junior Secondary School student at a residence in Orapa.

The crime came to light after the victim’s parents allegedly saw the video on You-Tube and notified the police.

Officer Commanding Letlhakane Police Station, Isaiah Makala, confirmed that they are investigating a case in which Letlhakane Senior Secondary School male students are alleged to have raped a young Orapa J.S.S student.

Makala said investigations were still at an early stage as the incident allegedly took place on May 7 and was reported to the police last week.

Charges have been laid against suspects aged 18 years old while the case for those who are still minors has been referred to social workers.

“We have charged the four with rape. The students have not been remanded yet but they were taken in for questioning,” he said.

He confirmed that there are allegations that there is a pornography video that was shot when the four were taking turns on the thirteen year old.

“I can’t say there is a video. That I cannot confirm since our investigations are still under way.”

Makala advised parents and the public to look after students and ensure that they are not on drugs. He said that incidents of drug abuse among students are increasing at an alarming rate. He revealed that the incident happened at a house party at a residence in Orapa in the absence of parents.
