More girls trapped in forced prostitution

A Johannesburg teenager who escaped a suspected human trafficking ring said she came forward with her story to raise the plight of other girls who could not escape.

She said there were still a large number of South African girls trapped in a life of forced prostitution.

The 16-year-old was abducted near her Bramley home in October 2011.

The teen was drugged and woke up in a compound along with other girls in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

She was raped, beaten and told she would become a prostitute on the streets of Cape Town.

After one of her attempts to run away failed, she staged a dramatic escape in Long Street and made it to the Cape Town police station.

She said her abductors are still holding at least 10 other girls.

“They were definitely South African girls between 13 and 19. Some of them had bruises. If we were told to do something and we did not then they forced themselves on you."
