Mbombela - A man hired to drive children to and from school has been charged with raping a 14-year-old passenger.

The 58-year-old man was arrested KaNyamazane, outside Mbombela, on Sunday and accused of raping the girl over a period of three months after collecting her from school.

“He's charged with taking her to his home after dropping all the other children off,” said KaNyamazane police spokesperson Inspector Andries Skwambane on Monday.
The girl finally spoke out on Sunday.

“She told her aunt, whom she stays with, about the alleged rapes,” he said.
The girl was taken to a local clinic for a medical examination.

The suspect is expected to appear in the KaNyamazane Magistrate's Court on Tuesday on a charge of rape.
