Rape Victims in South Africa

Zimbini - Aged 23. Zimbini and two of her friends were gang raped by four boys from a neighbouring village. One girl recognised one of the rapists. Out of fear of being caught, the boys murdered the girls. Zimbini only survived by playing dead and walking 5km to her village with a slit throat and stab wounds in both eyes. Zimbini now lives in Khayelithsa with 13 family members and her son. © Hazel Thompson
