South Africans were left shook after a documentary featured a HIV man who admitted to raping women with the intent to spread the disease.
The documentary, which was titled My Neighbour Is A Rapist, was spread like wild fire on social media but it appears it might have been a hoax.
According to IOL, the BBC reporter behind the story allegedly paid people to say what they said in the documentary- and since new broke the entire thing might have been a lie, the man disappeared without a trace.
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, Golden Mtika spoke to alleged serial rapist David Kaise, who admitted to sexually assaulting several women to infect them with HIV because he did not want to die alone.
However, since the documentary had been aired on BBC Africa Eye last month, several people who appeared on it came forward to admit they were paid by Mtika to say the things they said.
One of which was Diepsloot resident Ndivhuwo Ramaphalala, who said she was allegedly paid R200 by Mtika to say Kaise sexually assaulted her and left her with HIV.
But, it is not only the victim who reportedly lied, Kaise said he never sexually assaulted anyone, nor did he have HIV.
Mtika reportedly gave him R350 and told him what to say. The Sun has since tried to speak with Mtika, but the reporter has gone underground since it came to light he allegedly fabricated the story.
