Man in court for raping niece, 11
Johannesburg - A man accused of raping his 11-year-old niece appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate's Court on Friday, Limpopo police said.
The 23-year-old man's mother appeared with him as co-accused, Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said.
"The woman is charged with defeating the ends of justice, after she failed to intervene when the girl told her about the rape."
The girl told the accused, her aunt, about the alleged rape in 2010 when it started.
The case was postponed to March 29 and the two remained in custody, Ramatseba said.
