Mohale told his daughter he would kill her if she told anyone, Ramatseba said.

    Sometimes you cannot understand these sentrnces, is it not a mimimum of 15 years for RAPE. Let alone that this young woman looked up to her father for protection. DISGUSTING

      I agree, Luviwe. It is even more disgusting if a family member is responsible for raping you. I hope he gets his just deserts.

      Tania is there no way that as a member of the public through the Public Protector's office a recourse can be found at least for a minimum sentence in cases like these. What I fail to understand the constitution in clear about the punishment. Justice should prevail in these circumstances.

    guys please this ist a grammar class, we talking about a father who raped his own daughter, my question is how come a 23 years old can be raped by her own father? and not once but many time. 2007 and 2011, something was fishy, i also wanna ask you readers, is every sex entercourse between father and daughter rape? or its called rape only when one clumb ON without the other parti concern or agreement.

      Between father & daughter, Maurice, there should be no " climbing ON. " Incest, finish & klaar.

      Maurice. Let's talk about that grammar school you mentioned!!. Rape is rape, no matter how you look at it. Not cool.

      I actually can't believe you asked that question! You have no idea the level of control an abuser has. This is why a man can rape his wife and she will never tell a soul. And gross man - it's father and daughter! Would you have sex with your daughter?????

    Im the one who examined the victim. Ten years is too little especially for cop and father who was supposed to protect his family and the community.
