After weeks of court hearings and news headlines, victim Ivodene “Dienkie” van Niekerk, 28, says the honde [email protected] debacle has opened her eyes and after a decade of tikking, she is finally kicking her drug habit.
Dienkie was at the centre of a viral video made by nurse Elizabeth “Mimmie” Williams, 38, on 26 July, where she was allegedly moered with a dog chain, forced to drink abortion tablets and given dog poo to eat - all for sleeping with Mimmie’s berk, Franco “Jubie” Booysen.
In the vicious attack, the theatre nurse from Tygerberg Hospital hurls abuse at the mom of two claiming she has “vuilsiek” and “n***s around”.
Mimmie, along with Princess Gopie, Porchia Jonkers, Amber Booysen and Desmond Alexander, were charged and appeared in the Goodwood Magistrates’ Court.
Mimmie was granted R5000 bail while her co-accused were granted R1000 bail.
This week Dienkie hit back at reports that she is being threatened by gangsters for making a case against her attackers.
“Daai is alles [email protected] praat! I don’t know where that other newspaper got their information.
“Hulle sê sommer ek is ’n tik zombie en die gangsters wil hê ek moet my dood tik, daai is alles nonsens. Ek tik nie eens meer nie.”
She says the dog poo attack made her skrik wakker that she needs to change and be a better mother to her two girls, aged 11 and 9.
She also blames Jubie for everything.
“Die [email protected] ding was die beste ding wat met my gebeur het.
“I am better now that I’ve stopped drugging after the whole thing with Mimmie,” she says.
“I also spoke with Jubie and told him Mimmie is not a bad person, it’s because hy het te veel meire. I’m simply the one she could get to the quickest.”
She was also happy to hear Mimmie got bail as she was worried about the nurse’s son.
Dienkie says recent blood tests showed the tablets she was forced to take had worked its way out of her system.
“They also pumped my stomach, but there wasn’t any poo in anymore because I mos didn’t swallow it all.
“You can see on the video when Mimmie looks away I spit out the stukkies.”
