Man accused of raping boys drops bail bid

2012-05-23 14:28

Johannesburg - A man accused of raping six boys in Gansbaai will remain in custody after he abandoned his formal bail application in the Hermanus Magistrate’s Court, the Cape Times reported on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old appeared in court briefly on Tuesday for the third time since his arrest on April 1.

He was arrested after two 8-year-old boys pointed out his shack in the Mashakane informal settlement in Gansbaai. The boys told one of their guardians the man had raped them.

He allegedly lured six boys, aged between 7 and 12, to his shack and made them watch pornographic movies before raping them.

The trial was postponed until July 2 for further investigation as there were still statements, and a social worker's report outstanding.

    I am so sick of these heinous crimes that leave kids emotionally damaged. I cannot stand it! God help me that I don't ever get my hands on a rapist. I will castrate them and give them the most torturous beat down of their lives. Cowards.

      You are not alone in what you want to do to these rapists. He knows it, that's why he dropped his bail bid.

      I wish we could have this in this Country.. It would free up some prisons. BUT we must not look past the fact that the criminal will still have both his hands where he can beat upon Women and Children, because he would be fueled with rage and broken Pride. Castrate him and chop 1 of his hands off..

      Because our constitution protects everyone, even criminals who have been found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

      This could work perfectly. Its humane because he keeps his tools but can't use it for any other reason then urinating. And its reversible if the court sees the criminal might be worthy.

    Why some people are so sick. He must be hanged.

    You know why he withdrew his bail application? He is safer in prison. Were he released 'mob justice' would certainly prevail. Pity -somebody please go and pay his bail - he will not be able to run very fast after a couple of days in prison as a 'child rapist'... He is 29 years old and will hopefully spend the rest of his miserable 'very painful' life in Prison. Rot in hell sob....
