Durban - A 23-year-old man pleaded guilty in the Pietermaritzburg Regional Court to raping an 8-year-old boy, the Witness reported on Tuesday.

Siyabonga Dladla, who is deaf, was assisted by an interpreter skilled in the use of sign language during court proceedings.

Dladla admitted in a statement that on January 1 he had seen a child walking along the road and called him in sign language.

The boy resisted going with Dladla but he dragged him to a toilet and raped him.

A state psychologist found the child to be psychologically and emotionally traumatised. He now fears being in the company of older boys.

Dladla will be sentenced on Friday.

    So his defence would have been something like, "I couldn't hear that he was rapping the boy". Papa wag vir jou!!
