Rape of baby and mother beaten

I would like to know how the country is up in arms over woman and child abuse and its a terrible thing and how bad rape is our country, Yet a 52 year old man in a township can rape a 4 year old girl AND NO ONE DOES anything about it. The Osindisweni Hospital has done nothing about it but just send the mother and child home it has not been reported otherwise something would have been done ( but what do you expect from a government hospital as I have witnessed first-hand that , that hospital is more like a prison as that is how you get treated and they don’t care for the patients). Then he tries again and broke in to my domestic lady’s house to get at her 9 year old niece, when my Domestic chased him out as he only lives 3 houses down. so the lady that’s 4 year old was raped stood up to him and confronted him and he beat her. The police were called he was taken away but by the time morning came he was back , wait for it ….. the constable is on holiday so just let him go. LET HIM GO id understands if he had stolen a chocolate but he has RAPED AND BEAT a mother and her baby. Why was he not kept in prison to wait for the constable to come back from HOLIDAY, See this is the problem it seems no one cares about the kids and ladies in the township something happens to them oh well so what. It’s a disgrace and no wonder women don’t report what happens in the township as the men get out scott free and come back for them. The only way this will start to have any effect is if the RAPEIST are put and kept behind bars not let out with a slap on the wrist, the police and government hospitals need to start doing their job properly. What gets me the most is how you can have a drunk driver arrested on a Friday and only let out on a Monday but a rapist can be let out 3 hours later PRIORITY Please help what can we do to get this monster behind bars where he should be. Please keep my name anonymous as I live in the community where the township is and don’t what them to know who has complained ( as I far from trust the police to protect me

Women raped in front of sons and friends

Women raped in front of sons and friends

A Gauteng woman was raped in front of her teenage sons and their friends, and an elderly couple was robbed at a holiday resort in Richards Bay, northern KwaZulu Natal, The Witness reported on Wednesday.

The 38-year-old woman from Vanderbijlpark and her two sons were attacked by four armed men just hours after arriving at Meerensee for a five-day vacation.

They had arrived for their holiday at 9pm on Monday.

After raping the woman and ransacking the self-catering unit, the four went to another unit on the same property and held an elderly couple at gunpoint and robbed them.

According to a woman from the second unit, who wished not be named fearing for her safety, the armed men must have entered the property protected by five-metre walls and an electric gate, between 9.30pm and 10pm.

"The other group had just arrived [from Vanderbijlpark] and asked us if there was a shop nearby as they needed a few items.

"The armed men must have entered the property when they left the premises because when they returned they were waiting for them," she told the newspaper.

They allegedly forced the people into the home, forced the boys onto the ground and then one suspect raped the mother.

"One of the boys told us the mother just told them to look away while she was raped. He also said the robbers told them they were acting on ‘inside information'," the elderly victim told The Witness.

She said the suspects entered her unit at about 11.30pm through the bathroom and kitchen windows.

"We had just gone to bed. However, seconds after I got up to go and check on the dog, our bedroom light flicked on and this man entered our room."

With her husband waking up startled, the suspect pushed them both back onto the bed and immediately demanded jewellery, money, cellphones and laptops and threatened to rape the woman, the report said.

"We sat on the bed and pulled the duvet over us. One of the suspects started pulling the duvet down saying he was going to rape me, but he was distracted by my gold chain and instead took that. He kept saying 'where is the money, we are going to kill you'.

"They then ordered us to lie on the ground and tied up our hands and feet with my husband's shoelaces."

At this point the attackers escorted the four teenagers and the rape victim into the elderly couple's unit.

"The other woman had a gash to her head and was stumbling. They tied them all up and threatened to kill us. They had no masks; they weren't scared.

"One suspect said 'you [holidaymakers] shouldn't come here [Richards Bay], it's a sh*t place; look what we do to you',” said the elderly woman.

"By 11.50pm the suspects took the rape victim's BMW X5. They kept saying they were going to come back. By 1.45am my husband said we had better get out of the house.

"We forced a burglar bar open and climbed out the window, jumped walls into neighbouring premises until we were eventually helped by a drunk man who arranged to have the police called.

"I must say the SAPS in Richards Bay were flawless. We are thankful for their response," she said.

By Tuesday morning, police had recovered the BMW X5.

Richards Bay spokesperson Captain Debbie Ferreira told the newspaper no suspects had been arrested yet.

Girl (17) 'repeatedly raped'

A 17-year-old girl was gang-raped and further assaulted by six men at the Magogong Village in Taung, North West police said on Sunday.

Sergeant Kelebogile Moiloa said a 21-year-old man who knew the girl was arrested on Saturday following the attack, which happened in a bushy area in the Dipitshing section around 2.30pm on Friday.

She said the six men also tried to cut the teenager's throat but she sustained only a minor injury.

The minor was walking alone when she was approached by the 21-year-old, who asked for her phone. When she told him she did not have one, the man replied that she must pay him whatever money she had.

"The minor did not suspect anything and kept on walking," said Moiloa.

"While she was walking, five men approached her from the back."

According to information received, each man had a knife. They forcefully undressed her before raping her.

"The guy who was familiar to her went back to her and [again] repeatedly raped her."

It was alleged that one of the men cut her throat with a knife. He also tied her hands behind her back and to a tree.

"The minor was then left helplessly in pain with her hands tied at the back until a passerby came to her rescue by taking her to Taung District Hospital for medical treatment."

Moiloa said the matter was reported to the police and the minor identified the man she knew.

He was expected to appear in the Taung Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Further investigations would continue, said Moiloa.

Boy (6) Raped at School

Boy (6) Raped at School


An angry Orange Farm mother is demanding answers after her six-year-old son who was raped at school.

The woman said that she phoned the principal of Makiwane Combined School last week, after her child told her that he had been raped by an older boy.

The boy was then further allegedly traumatised, when the deputy principal allegedly took the boy from classroom to classroom to identify the perpetrator.

The school has also been lambasted for failing to notify police about the matter before Wednesday.

"They said they will handle the matter but so far nothing has been done for my son," she said.

Women and Men Against Child Abuse spokesperson Miranda Jordan spoke to the deputy principal about what had happened.

"She and the principal have committed an offence by not reporting it and their action was very harmful in taking this boy from classroom to classroom to identify an older boy," said Jordan.

Meanwhile, the Gauteng Department of Education said it is sending a team to the school on Thursday to investigate the rape allegations.

Counselling will also be offered to the boy and his family.

Rape victim bites guys tongue off

Mpumalanga police were on Monday still looking for a man whose tongue was partly bitten off when he allegedly tried to rape a woman near Hazyview.

"Word has been put out to hospitals that they must let police know if a man with a severed tongue comes in," Captain Leonard Hlathi said.

The woman was attacked while walking home on 22 January around 7pm in Swalala village in the Masoyi area near Hazyview.

"In the process of trying to rape her the man had his tongue [partly] bitten off... he tried to kiss her and that's when she bit him hard."

The man ran off and the woman alerted the police. They sent the piece of tongue to a hospital for forensic tests, but Hlathi would not stipulate which hospital.

"We hope that someone will see this man and help us catch him."
