Diepsloot, Joburg suburb where rapists are burnt

Diepsloot, a northern suburb of Johannesburg, is a settlement of 150,000 people, the majority of them destitute. Crime oversteps even poverty as the most bedeviling affliction. Mob justice is the norm here, most often involving the swift pursuit and capture of an alleged criminal. The villain, especially if he is a rapist is beaten up, stone, perhaps even wrapped in a petrol-soaked shroud and burnt before curious onlookers and the police. An HIV +ve man, David, has not only claimed to be a serial rapist, but that he is trying to spread the disease because he does not want to die alone. He boasts of a tally of 24 rapes so far. Burning suspected rapists to death hasn’t deterred David or men like him.
