NPA dismisses DJ Fresh and DJ Euphonik’s crimen injuria case against alleged rape victim

Johannesburg – The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has dismissed the case of crimen injuria opened by Thato “DJ Fresh” Sekwane and Themba “DJ Euphonik” Nkosi in April against an alleged rape victim known on Twitter as Nampree.

In a statement, NPA spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana said they had decided not to prosecute the charge of criminal defamation as they believe there would be no possibility of a successful prosecution.

“The NPA can confirm a decision not to institute prosecution based on charges of criminal deformation was taken. The NPA is of the view there are no prospects of a successful criminal prosecution.

“The attorneys have been informed accordingly.”

The two accused opened the case against the woman earlier this year after she alleged the DJs had drugged and raped her in 2011 at a chillas (small party) she attended with a friend, who was apparently invited by one of the DJs.

The woman said she welcomed the decision to drop the case. She said she would be going to jail for simply stating her truth if the NPA decided to prosecute.
