27 years after her brutal rape ordeal, Pretoria woman takes on a 729km journey.
45-year-old Leilani Kuter from Roodepoort, Gauteng was brutally raped and left for dead when she was only 18 years old. Now, exactly 27 years later, Leilani is speaking out about her ordeal, to help empower young women affected by sexual assault and gender-based violence.
Born to a middle-class family, Leilani was independent from a young age and started working at the age of 15. By the age of 17, she was working at the Department of Finance as an admin clerk and had moved into a room at the NG-church Youth Centre in Pretoria.
