A rape case was opened against the two renowned South African radio personalities earlier this week. A Twitter user accused the pair of allegedly drugging and raping her in 2011.
“I was completed drugged I don’t whether you BOTH raped me or 1 of you did & you later laughed about it the next morning saying we (me & 3 girls) were so drunk we kept blacking out.
On DJ Fresh’s Twitter feed some social media users say they would like for a court to decide their fate, while others accuse the woman of lying.
I have no doubt this will all be cleared up positively Fresh 🤜🏻

Some questions shouldn’t be asked. And if they are – it should be in court.
