S.A Teen, Zenizole Vena, Ra-p-ed By 5 Boys For 4 Days As She Died While Trying To Open a Case.. She managed to get away and arrived at Motherwell Clinic, where the nurses advised her to file a case as they don’t handle rape victims and that the police would transport her to a hospital.
She passed away while opening the case. The Motherwell Clinic personnel in Gqeberha, where a 15-year-old rape victim initially sought aid before her death, handled her care negligently, according to a health ombud probe.
Prof. Taole Mokoena, the health ombud, presented the investigation’s findings in Pretoria on Tuesday.
His investigation aimed to determine whether Zenizole Vena died due to neglect, whether she was not given proper treatment at the clinic, and whether the personnel neglected to send her to a higher level of care.
In September 2022, Michéle Clarke, the Democratic Alliance’s shadow minister of health, filed a complaint.
Mokoena discovered that Vena had come to the clinic with an elderly woman in tow, in critical condition, having been raped horribly.
“There is often an abuse of that time period of 48 hours. Because during that 48 hours they not allowed to just keep you there for the 48 hours and do nothing. They actually have to actively take steps to verify your ID.”
“If you say my ID or my documentation or my refugee passport is at home, they are supposed to take you home to go and verify. But they don’t do that, the police take people, they drive around in the vans and wait for you to cave and solicit bribes before releasing you. And we found that to happen so often,” explains Mia.
