2011-12-29 10:05

Durban - The male nurse who allegedly raped a mentally ill patient at the Osindisweni hospital in Verulam, north of Durban has been arrested, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

"The suspect was arrested at his house in the Osindisweni area on Wednesday," Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

The 30-year-old man allegedly raped a mentally ill patient in the shower at the hospital on Sunday night. He pushed the patient against the sink and ordered her to be quiet before raping her. He reportedly ran away from the hospital after being questioned by police.

Provincial health department spokesperson Chris Maxon welcomed the arrest.

"The MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo said on Wednesday the man should consider himself fired. We have already sent him a suspension letter."

He is facing rape charges and would appear in the Verulam Magistrate's Court on Friday.

      Exactly!!!! Why rape in the first place? But for goodness sake!!! A mental patient!! He must be nuts himself!!!

      I dont believe he is mentally ill himself, he is a predator. He took advantage of the patient and the situation. He saw a vunerable person and struck. Not fit to be caring for anyone.

    This diseased piece of cr@p should be castrated and jailed for life! But knowing the law in S.A he will be out on bail by the new year! Rapists,child molesters and murderers cannot be rehabilitated but money is wasted by keeping these sickos in jail for a peiod and then let loose on the public again!!! No bail-LIFETIME hard labour in jail!

  • moikhethi - 2011-12-29 11:27

    Send him to China, I know he is going to do it again there, but guess what he will come back in a brown box... Bloody rubbish....

    I wonder what the male nurse was doing in the lady's shower in the first place, furthermore, i presume that they were there alone. I think the institute should be investigated as to how their departments are run and staff evaluated (mentally)!

      mashandu - 2011-12-29 15:38

      i agree with you bro...if they are investigated i believe more of the rape has been going on at that place.....fire every1 who was on duty at that day

  • Lorenzo - 2011-12-29 11:33

    Death Penalty for all Rapists and Murderers!!! Its as simple as that. SA is too soft on these bastards!!!!!

  • Michelle Kirsten - 2011-12-29 11:33

    Well done police. Must have been one heck of a manhunt what with him probably having an employee record with his adress! And how sane is he, returning home!! Probably thought he could get away with it OR working on own insanity defence..

  • AyGeewils - 2011-12-29 11:36

    There is only one sentence for this level of crime - the death penalty!

  • Daft - 2011-12-29 11:40

    To be arrested in "Osindisweni area" speaks for it self !!!....WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED ??

  • nishaatf - 2011-12-29 11:56

    they will probly let him out on bail a sick ass R2000 or even less, wounder what his time will be and how long they will take to give him a sentance

  • Barefoot - 2011-12-29 12:29

    the guy is sick should spent years in prison- but that MEC guy is not very intelligent is he? we can shout out any thing let him be hanged or what ever but the MEC should know that an investigation and a guilty verdict should be handed out before you fire someone- what fine management skills, he's premature firing might end up coming back to bite the government hence the tax payer due to unfair dismissal practices. you don't fire someone on account of an investigation

  • Thoka - 2011-12-29 12:41

    This Chicken sh*t is going to rob us in future, chop his match stick and stick it up his backside.

  • mokopane - 2011-12-29 12:53

    It seems like to this guy, raping vulnerable patients was his everyday job and this was obviously not his first attempt. He must be punished severely in order to scare his other rapist-colleagues at other hospitals.

      mashandu - 2011-12-29 15:42

      mokopane this hospital is fullllllll of rapist and all should 4tjek
