Kenny Kunene 'gang raped' by women

2013-04-15 12:32
Johannesburg - Self-proclaimed Sushi King and entrepreneur Kenny Kunene has made shocking comments on radio and Twitter, allegedly admitting to have had sex with underage students during his time as an English teacher.

Kunene made the remarks during an interview with Phat Joe on Metro FM on Saturday morning, reports Wonted.

Kunene has previously claimed to have as many as 15 girlfriends staying with him in his upmarket Sandton "harem" and with whom he has one night stands.

'That's statutory rape'

When Phat Joe asked Kunene, who owns the ZAR nightclub brand, if he thinks he can attract so many beautiful young girls all at once because of his money and fame, Kunene replied: "When I was a student, I had multiple girlfriends; and when I was a teacher I also had multiple girlfriends, so it is not of my current financial situation."

Phat Joe's co-host Pearl Thusi asked Kunene: "When you were a teacher, did you sleep with your students?"

Kunene replied that he did, and some might have been under the age of 16. The age of consent in South Africa, according to the Sexual Offences Act, is 16.

"That's statutory rape," exclaimed Pearl, and Kunene agreed without hesitation, writes Wonted. He later took to Twitter to say that some of the students he slept with were older than him.

When confronted with a barrage of tweets about his remarks, Kunene responded:
Kunene also appeared on SABC3's 3Talk with Noleen Maholwana Sangqu with 5 of his 15 girlfriends for an interview. The 43 year-old ex-convict turned businessman claims the women he dates only sleep with him and go for regular HIV tests.

"Life is too short to be taking girls out for dates and to restaurants," Kunene told Noleen Maholwana Sangqu. "Mina I say it there and there, sometimes I don't even propose. Women are easy".

On Twitter on Monday morning, Kunene remained unfazed by the backlash:

      So when do they arrest this dweeb for rape?

      adinparadise - 2013-04-18 08:59

      Disgusting man. Definitely should be investigated. I'm sure many of his victims would come forward

  • Monique Naude - 2013-04-15 13:03

    Dear News24, could you please stop posting stories about this playa? Admitting to having sex with students, admitting some were under age, knowing he is a convict, shady business contacts. Why do you post stories about him, when he sets such terrible examples for the younger generation? You should be ashamed of yourself for even entertaining this. And joking about being raped, and loving it? Really pathetic.

  • Moseshi Malatjie - 2013-04-15 13:17

    This 'hopefully a Man' is taking black ppl to a new low.

      Bra N'Darkie - 2013-04-15 13:25

      Kenny doesn't represent all black ppl. He is just a dumb guy who got lucky

      Wim De Villiers - 2013-04-15 18:02

      Not the ones I know...they carry themselves with dignity...

      Lindiwe Skosana - 2013-04-15 19:20

      Really? Hugh Heffner is a dog too but no one thinks he reflects badly on white people

      Ollie Malherbe - 2013-04-15 20:01

      He brings the entire human race to a new low.

      Alan Jerrold - 2013-04-17 12:42

      Agreed, KennyW. Hefner is a disgusting old man living in a dated mansion that an ex Playboy bunny says smells of dog pee. Not my idea of glamour. I don't think he reflects on White people any more than the equally disgusting Kenny Kunene reflects on Blacks.

    The moral depravity in our country has reached an all time low.

      Justice Schwart - 2013-04-17 12:44

      He is rich, only by virtue of his ANC connections. He can still be charged for having sex with his students and other underage girls- but he is safe in South Africa nobody in government will want to charge him, because of his connections.

  • Adri Uys - 2013-04-15 13:25

    agree that he should get no publicity at all!!!

  • Fox Trixter - 2013-04-15 13:26

    south Africans are so uptight and serious they cant even realise when a moron wants to keep himself circulating in the social circles! stop being angry people...! just ignore the fool and read about Kaizer Chiefs...

      Takudzwa Mugwangi - 2013-04-17 11:52

      @Kenny: Your failing to see this comment from the writers point of view and not realizing that these comments are meant to reflect people's opinions and not to satisfy your standard for "intellectual capability" is proof you u are the one who needs to stay away from this forum. You managed to judge from one comment which also makes you shallow. If you disagree with one's opinion dislike it or say it and not tell them how unintelligent they are.

  • Andile Mehlonyosi - 2013-04-15 13:28

    The attention seeker on note is at it again! This chap would go out of his way(whatever it takes) to attract the limelight!

      Mpho Mphela - 2013-04-17 15:36

      he is not even closer to beingg a role model. he is a role model to himself

  • Mashudu Matamela - 2013-04-15 13:30

    This guy is a sick animal, what if he was still a teacher?

      Ernica Stanford - 2013-04-16 10:51

      Was he ever a teacher?

      Justice Schwart - 2013-04-17 12:48

      Was he ever a teacher?- good question. I doubt it too that a real teacher will have such low morals.

      Nkoneni Albert Netshiendeulu - 2013-04-17 15:16

      Imagine. I bet he escaped from ZOO. I didn't do teaching but i would imagine they would teach you how to conduct yourself and more emphasises on the fact that learners are looking up to you as your father whom they can run to when they need assistance; not someone they should run away from. Unfortunately he was just a teacher by profession not by deeds.

      Amanda Desire Nel - 2015-09-05 06:47

      There are people who would have no problem with it. In fact they would have raped their own child at an early age and trained them for these orgies. New born babies are being raped, why should perverts care about their own children?

      He behaves like a municipal bore and is too stupid to see how repulsive he is.

    Ew, what a repulsive man. Kenny needs to take a seat and recognize that nobody CARES. Majority of people don't really know who he is and even if they do, he's not an icon- he's irrelevant. Secondly, EW for the ladies in the picture. Put on some clothes or at least get better looking lingerie. What a sad sad article. The length people will go to for attention. Let's say it all together.... "HAAI SHEM!"

  • Emsep Sephehi Sekese - 2013-04-15 22:59

    why do other people think like this? this person has to be prosecuted for what he has done. It's disgusting! Nxa!!!

      Nkoneni Albert Netshiendeulu - 2013-04-17 15:07

      @Emsep, I agree with you he needs to be put behind bars AGAIN. They say you do not have to taste a jail sentence because it keeps on haunting on you. He better go back. Anyway i have never heard of him donating anything to charity or empoverished people; so his money or should i say the money he used to have was good for nothing. Kenny; police are hunting for you, they want you back in jail. I wonder who's gonna befriend with you this time.

  • Ntemi Mark - 2013-04-15 23:01

    l wonder! what is his motive this person? is there nothing good that this person can do 4the south africans except talking about jigg,jiggy?l know he's got freedom of speech,l mean how his morals if has,this person appears 2me like a very angry person with a lucifer face
