“One of the complainants laid a rape charge with SAPS in February 2022 against Maarohanye, her former boyfriend. She alleged that the incidents of rape happened between 2006 and 2009 while she was in a relationship with him.

“She further stated that she attempted to report the matter at Mondeor SAPS back then, but was turned away. She decided to approach the police following Maarohanye’s degrading comments about her on a podcast.

“After seeing her speaking out about her ordeal on social media, more women decided that it was time to come forward and tell their stories about the humiliation and abuse they suffered at the hands of the accused.

“After the complainant consulted with the Senior Public Prosecutor (SPP) in Johannesburg, three more women were willing to give statements about their own experiences whilst they were in a relationship with the accused.

“The SPP guided the investigations to completion and handed over the docket to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for a decision.”
