2012-03-02 14:18

Port Elizabeth - A 58-year-old grandfather who pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault appeared in the Humansdorp Magistrate's Court on Friday, Eastern Cape police said.

"The case was postponed to March 30, pending a psychologist's report," Lieutenant Colonel Priscilla Naidu said.

The grandfather pleaded guilty on January 11 this year to sexually abusing his granddaughters.

Naidu said the man sexually abused his 4-year-old and 7-year-old granddaughters, who were living next door to him in Humansdorp.

"The children reported the sexual abuse to their mother just before Christmas. The man was arrested soon afterwards. "During his second appearance he pleaded guilty and was released on R5 000 bail," said Naidu.

Bail conditions state the man is not allowed to reside in the Humansdorp area.

    must be a real dog

    It goes beyond comprehension how any male can actually do something like this. Must be a mental case to actually gain pleasure from a 4yr old child or 7yr old for that matter.

    Pure and absolute filth. Parade him through the streets without protection in a sandwich board saying 'I abused children'. But first, line the streets with rocks!

    O M W!! they are still babies, whts wrong with the guy?

  • Sharon - 2012-03-02 14:41

    He is 58 and still doesn't know it is WRONG to sexually abuse little girls? Sad indeed, he does not deserve to have grand-children!

    Screw the psychologist's report. Any person who can abuse a child is not right in the head, and to think that its his own grandkids. He should be removed from society, sane or insane.

    For those who were whinging this morning at news24 about there being no news except for trivial nonsense.... I would rather that the biggest news story was about someone employing a dwarf than this...

      Anastasia - 2012-03-02 15:04

      Yep. As a fairly frequent visitor to the site, I share your opinion. No news, is good news.

      Marion - 2012-03-02 16:07

      Amen to that John.

      Sharon - 2012-03-02 16:24

      Never a truer word spoken, John

    oh my word...what a sick man, he deserves to be hanged.

    whenever i hear or read a story like this, i never judge but i get scared, what lead to any person to do this. This is very scary. getting sex is very easy these days, go to a mall, club, church and many other areas, women are readily available, why go for anything under 18 years.

  • Shirley - 2012-03-02 15:05

    Death sentence! What kind of a "thing" does this to a four year old child??????Then they give him BAIL?????

  • Olivia - 2012-03-02 15:25

    Unbelievable!! WTF??!!

  • Samukelisiwe Tana Shelembe - 2012-03-02 15:33

    knowing S.A's justice system the guy will be roaming the streets in just a few yrs, while the 2 kids live with the memory for the rest of their lives. this is messed up,Damn!

      Brian Chawira - 2012-03-02 18:09

      his stupid old man

  • Marion - 2012-03-02 16:05

    You sick old f&*k. Doubt this is something new for you. Probably done it for years with other kids but never been caught. Good on you mom for not keeping the dark family secret hidden. Hope the two kids get good therapy to cope with this cause they will be haunted by it for life.

    The world we living in...

  • Winsome - 2012-03-03 06:59

    His own granddaughters? This is a sick sex offender - who will get away with a slap on the wrist while the family is torn apart by his disgusting actions. My sympathy lies with the mother who had to report this and her 2 little girls - they have to live with this for the rest of their lives.
