East London - A 52-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping a girl, aged 7, in Manqulo Village near Butterworth, Eastern Cape police said on Tuesday.

Captain Jackson Manatha said the girl was left alone at home with her twin sister on Friday night.

The man, who is apparently in a relationship with the girl's mother, entered the home and allegedly raped the girl.

    Cut off his dick!

      Yar - 2011-12-27 12:34

      At 2mm per week

      Garth - 2011-12-27 12:44

      Sooo, if I've done the math right, that's 2 punishments, correct?

      Burtfred - 2011-12-27 12:57

      @ Yar If they cut off 2mm per week, it will only take about a month to remove it all.

      Sean - 2011-12-27 13:03

      They should smash both his knee caps so that he sits in a wheelchair for the rest of his miserable life !! I hope he dies a slow miserable death !

      Yar - 2011-12-27 13:50

      @Burtfred Thats fine, just keep cutting forever.

      My first thought was that death would be the only fitting sentence for this creature, but death lets him off the hook too quickly. Castration is a better option (inluding penis removal), then put him back in his community - see how he enjoys life then. He will be a living example to other "men" that have ideas like he had.

    Sick animal. May they do the same to him in jail.

      Chum Scrubber - 2011-12-27 14:21

      Sick human.

  • Patricia - 2011-12-27 11:57

    so this clearly tells us that she loves this man more than her daughter.does she understand that this man has ruined her daughter's life for good?

  • Zanele - 2011-12-27 12:02

    MALDITO DESGRACIADO!

      Garth - 2011-12-27 12:49

      I wonder which cretin would give you a `thumb down', unless it was in objection to your usage of the word `bloody'?

  • Shirley - 2011-12-27 12:03

    The mother should be charged with child neglect! The rapist should be hung from a tree,honey poured on his genitals and fire ants left to do the rest! Society is SICK!!!!!

      Simon - 2011-12-27 12:09

      shirley you cant , what if it was you. you leave your child with someone you trust. He is the guilty one , not she

      Yar - 2011-12-27 12:36

      @Simon He is guilty She is negligent

      Mya - 2011-12-27 14:21

      Simon, she left her two small children alone. He came along and did his deed. Then the family still wanted to keep it quiet and not press charges?

  • Michelle - 2011-12-27 12:05

    Absolutely barbaric! Cut it off!

  • Zanele - 2011-12-27 12:06

    It's becoming increasingly dangerous to live in Soth Africa. Where Am I gonna run to with my family.Dios ayudanos!

  • Shirley - 2011-12-27 12:21

    Simon: Do you call good parenting leaving 2 seven year old children on their own????? To busy partying, no attention to kids.

      mashandu - 2011-12-27 12:53

      did u raed what happened or u r 2 quick to blame the mother?we talking of rural areas where woman work like animals.what if this happened when she went to fetch water or mayb been send by her boyfriend.infact the story reads"the man came into the house when the mother was not there

      mashandu - 2011-12-27 13:07

      did any1 say party or u r just writing ur own story.?r u a woman?if u were then u shud start feeling pain 4 this poor woman and kids

      Sharon - 2011-12-27 13:08

      @Mashandu... The mother is guilty of neglect for the sole reason that she did not want to get the police involved. I quote "Manatha said the family wanted to solve the crime privately".. Really, that Mother F$%&ker should rot in jail, and hopefully be raped every day for the rest of his miserable little life... The mother was probably out partying, as most people are on leave this time of the year....

  • Garth - 2011-12-27 12:21

    The police are quick to act when saving the life of a rapist. But the life of a white farmer?

      mashandu - 2011-12-27 12:43

      what does a white farmer has to do with this topic?u r just like malema u say things that r not related to the topic at hand

      Simon - 2011-12-27 14:22

      I fully agree , In Richards bay there was recently a woman robbed and raped in front of her children,A white woman , nothing has happened yet , but if she was another race , they would have been caught by now

  • j.c.s.mailbox - 2011-12-27 12:35

    No the South African law is so criminalfriendly they want to award him with the Nobelprice and a golden handshake of R50M out of the tax treasure box.

      Garth - 2011-12-27 12:46

      Whoa, visit planet earth much?

  • rashaad0hendricks01 - 2011-12-27 12:37

    This is not african culture this is a case of a sick human being an they are found in every culture

      Bianca - 2011-12-27 14:25

      I agree with you.

  • mashandu - 2011-12-27 12:40

    chop it off.his not a man like us he is an animal

      Sean - 2011-12-27 13:05

      he is worse than a animal

  • Shirley - 2011-12-27 13:16

    Mashandu: If you read the article PROPERLY you will see she left the children alone at night,so even if she was "WORKING LIKE AN ANIMAL". All too often you read about children left to fend for themselves dying in fires etc-so yes she WAS negligent!

  • Johan - 2011-12-27 13:24

    It would not prevent this animal from sexually attacking another child by castrating him! He should be locked up for the rest of his life

      Shirley - 2011-12-27 14:23

      I agree but 2 wrongs dont make a right!!!!

  • The-Azanian - 2011-12-27 14:30

    Manqulo village is the new hillside street...the train stunt and nw this.

  • ReunionofIntelligentMinds - 2011-12-27 14:53

    Pity the police interfered. A private 'solving' with the help of the community would have saved taxpayers money. This time the police 'looking the other way' would have been appropriate.

  • Rob - 2011-12-27 16:50

    the guy is as sick as you get

  • gcshrimpton - 2011-12-27 19:01

    Well done 2 the police 4 acting swiftly.

  • Maurits Schultz - 2011-12-28 01:19

    Cut his balls off!
