Mahikeng - A 47-year-old man accused of raping an 11-year-old girl appeared in the Schweizer-Reneke Magistrate's Court on Monday, North West police said.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said the matter was postponed to May 14 for a bail application.

He was arrested on Sunday, in Amalia, outside Schweizer-Reneke.

It was believed he gained entry to the girl's house through an unlocked door and allegedly raped her, Makau said.

    How do you even rape a child? #Death penalty #Power to the people

  • Grace - 2012-05-07 19:26

    Why does he get bail? So he can rape a few more til he's convicted FINALY in 5 years??? He's 47 so how many has he already raped? You don't START raping at that age

    Yoh! Yoh! Yoh!. Is raping a new status these days. What the hell is wrong with men. If it ain't a pastor then it a teenage gang or an uncle of a child. When I say crush the head of that bustard with the biggest stone possible they give me a stair and call me heartless, when it is reported that an innocent has been raped they listen for two minutes and then change the subject. Now let me get this straight... I am heartless when I say let us kill the criminal who do heinous crimes on innocent people and they are mercyful if they is fine for criminal that hurts innocent people to go to jail and have three meals a day and possibly make money. hhmmmm welcome to south africa..

    When will men stop thinking with there dks? Get a damn paw paw or use your hand. Dammit leave the young girls (and boys) alone. Thank God I trained my girls to be strong and take no crap from men and my boys to respect women, and so they did.

    It will be criminally irresponsible for any court to release this man back into the same community where the victim lives or any other community where there are any children. There is no cure for paedophillia and until there is, we do not want them back.

      I agree Lac but what about the 'gang rape video' case? Look what happened - its SO disheartening

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-07 21:04

      I've tried to do research to find an organisation representing rape and child abuse. There are so many - from grass-roots preventative care all the way through to treatment for offenders. All are sub-programs of a wider program. POWA's web-site I cannot get into because of malicious virus warning. So apart from POWA - whose silence in the media makes me wonder if they even exist! - there is no *single* organisation championing this cause, lobbying parliament, etc. Time for a new organisation that represents how we as a society feel. It's not just a women/child issue. This affects everyone.

    Typical just another case of blacks raping kids. They need phsycological analysis if that is possible???

      Lacrimose - 2012-05-07 19:49

      This is not a race issue, beware of falling into that mind-trap. The psychological causes are many and thus far, the world over, there are no lasting solutions. Once a person acts on their desire to molest children they have crossed a line from which there is no return. No treatments devised so far have any effect. Even so-called 1st world countries have resorted to 'sex-offender registers' as the best they can do. We, the people, say this is not good enough. In this matter, the human rights of one cannot, shall not override the human rights of many. They must not be set free.

      Andrew...You KNOW you are not allowed to associate black with anything negative, they are very sensitive that way. We are trying to build one nation here, no colour, all one. Except someone forgot to inform the non racist government...They still want to know who is White, Black, Coloured or Indian, except when its black crime.

      Andrew you a brainwashed idiot

    God please take control of SA, we ve got hell lots of animals in human skin preyin on young innocent gals, cut that bastard balls n serve it to him for dinner.

  • lindiwe.mthiyane1 - 2012-05-07 19:56

    Keep him where he belongs

  • George - 2012-05-07 20:08

    Here's what you do. Get thick piece of rope, string it around his next and hang him from the nearest SCAMRAL gantry for the morning traffic to see that cANCer is serious about stopping crime. He can then apply for bail. That's if the sangomas haven't used his body parts for muti.

    The state of morality in South Africa is terribly low. No where else on this planet do you find so many children and women being abused. Government should ban bails for all rapists and extend their prison sentences, so that a clear message can be sent.

  • David - 2012-05-07 20:39

    Mr President & Government: What would it take before you start protecting your country? There is such lenient punishment against rapists that there is no fear of committing this horrible crime. Protect your people -that's your mandate!!!

  • Thabo - 2012-05-07 21:25

    @ Andrew, its not about race. A young girl has been destroyed. We are having a problem with these rapists. If I can be employed to hang them, there wl be less of them.

  • manqoba.ian - 2012-05-07 21:53

    Many little girlz are being raped, and this thing, is not endinging is a countineously, south Africa must change the law. No jail,no bail, no court for rapist, to reduce rape we need to take a serious step. Rape the is no more you
