Woman sold to Nigerian men in South Africa speaks of her ordeal


    In 2010, Valerie Madondo (second from left) from Zimbabwe crossed the South African border in search of employment. She hoped to earn enough to provide for her infant boys. But her journey took a harrowing turn for the worse after she was sold to Nigerian men by South African women in Rosettenville.

    Valerie, now 29, was held captive by these men for six years. Speaking to the CHRONICLE, Valerie shares how she was trafficked in 2010, drugged, abused, sold as a prostitute, locked up, held hostage and raped countless times.
