Man on run after raping daughter

2011-01-10 16:20

Bethal - A 38-year-old man accused of raping his 12-year-old daughter is on the run.

The girl reported that she had been raped in her room in Bethal, Mpumalanga, at about 23:00 on January 2.

"It is alleged that the suspect had been drinking when he started making sexual comments about the girl's body.

"The victim says the suspect offered her coke mixed with beer, but she refused it and then went to bed," said Bethal police spokesperson Colonel Mukhulunyelwa Mtungwa on Monday.

A few minutes later, the suspect is reported to have entered the girl's room and raped her before running away.

"The child phoned her mother who lives and works in another town. The mother then phoned the child's grandmother who reported the incident to the police," said Mtungwa.

The child is now living with her grandmother.

    I'VE CHANGED MY VIEWS ON THE DEATH PENALTY. PERRRLEEEZ BRING IT BACK ASAP AND USE IT ON DIRT LIKE THIS!!!!

      Made_In_SA - 2011-01-10 16:14

      the death sentence is a strong deterrent and it helps clean the gene pool of floaters... the old excuse of "shame the poor criminal has rights" and all that crap needs to be done away with, rights are earned and when somebody commits a crime like this they immediately give up all rights to a nice life there after! Petty Criminal's incarceration should be for the family's expense, if the family cant afford to feed and clothe him then he goes hungry and naked till he finishes his sentence.

      I don't even know what to say to this.....I don't think there is a punishment harsh enough for doing something like this!!

      They should be handed over to the public to deal with. We will set a very good example on just a few of them and demonstrate that this sort of behaviour will not be tolerated in our community and trust me, rape will be a thing of the past. I am not a violent person, but this sort of behavior on innocent children makes my blood boil and I know if I ever had to come close to one, I will not be able to control myself. I think they should be castrated and branded on the chest and forehead with the words "child rapist" and set free(not locked up and further waste tax payers money). That to me, would be punishment well deserved for commiting such a horrendous crime.

    disgusting

    These apes have no boundaries, sorry i`m insulting the apes.

      James - 2011-01-10 16:05

      We have before read about false accusations of rape by kids to their adult relatives mainly to cover some misbehaviour on their part (children). We need to comment once the courts have tried and find the suspect guilty.

      Robnob - 2011-01-10 17:33

      Our African "brothers" participating in their national sport again. Rape is built in to them, or taught to them by their parents unfortunately.

      Alfred - 2011-01-10 17:58

      James, how many of those falsely accused ran away from the scene before the cops got there?

  • Made_In_SA - 2011-01-10 16:09

    Nice one! nothing like raping your own daughter! Me thinks he should be castrated with a rusty machete and left to bleed slowly to death...

  • Deborah - 2011-01-10 16:15

    Hi perrrleeez, the death penalty is too good for these barbarians, sex offenders, especially against children, need to be locked up in solitary confinement for the rest of their miserable lives.

      sabrael - 2011-01-10 16:49

      While the idea of them suffering in prison is great, I'd rather have my taxes spent rehabilitating victims. Rather just kill the bastards and get it over with. One less to worry about or support. Although I must admit that I don't believe the death penalty would work in a country where corruption has the front-row seat.

  • psyphore - 2011-01-10 16:24

    what the hell is going on with this country? Realy now, raping.... your own flesh and blood? when they find him, he will know how it feels to be raped.

      jfr.wtf - 2011-01-10 16:49

      You sound surprised? This has been going on for quite some time.

      Lightdancer. - 2011-01-10 16:49

      Sorry to tell you...it happens in every country all over the world...we live in a sick society...

  • THH - 2011-01-10 16:25

    WTF The most important job in life and any idiot can be tasked with it, makes me sick that the people that kids can trust do the worst to them.

      Matseko - 2011-01-10 16:39

      I hope, pray and believe that Mr. President has read about this one. Even though we still have good men in this country, there are those who really belong in hell. If I get hold of this monster, believe me, I am going to cut off his balls.

      THH - 2011-01-10 16:55

      @Matseko Bud that would only be start because death would be kind to this monster. The poor little girl have that for the rest of her life, not trust anyone if not your father.

    You see, opposing thumbs and walking upright does not make you human

  • Lightdancer. - 2011-01-10 16:47

    The violation of an innocent girl is the worst crime there is...death is nothing in comparison...she will live with the consequences for the rest of her life...rape is breaking your spirit...no child should ever have such a memory to carry with her...hope she gets treatment/proper counseling...so she can be free of guilt...for a child often thinks it has been her/his fault... may society not fail her as so many before...

    Rapists should be castrated.

      john - 2011-01-10 17:26

      Rapists should be hung, end of story. How many rapists have ever been rehabilitated in prison? They get out and - even if it's thirty years later - go straight back to raping. Often on the very day of their release. The major difference is that those who are released usually become a lot more violent against victims, because they themselves are carrying the trauma of being raped in prison. There is no rehabilitation for these people. They are permanently broken and keeping them in jail just makes them more broken. Just put the poor sod out of his misery and improve the gene pool slightly. It sounds harsh but it's the best thing for the species. Nature itself is harsh, broken specimens in any species get eradicated by predators/parasites/etc very quickly. If we lived more in sync with natural trends, the whole planet would be better off. Consigning more women to the certainty of being raped when this animal gets out of jail, under the logic that he has human rights which can't be breached, is just ridiculous. What about the rights of the victims who WILL be raped in future because we lack the spine and common sense to cull this broken individual? We have more than enough people, we don't need to conserve them like some rare and precious species. The planet could lose three billion humans and the remainder, along with the other species and natural resource systems, would be immeasurably better off.

    Rapists should be castrated.

  • omz - 2011-01-10 16:56

    This is fast becoming a sick and demented trend amongst some men. Instead of being the symbol of strength and pride to their children they are feared. It's a shame that the world we live in still has headlines such as these ones. No human being has the right to control that of another, he deserves to go to prison, let them sort him out there.

    THE MAN DESERVES A DEATH SENTENCE,FINISH ND KLAAR

  • Makgoana - 2011-01-10 17:12

    What the F U C K, this is worse than S H I T itself, the monster needs to be buried 12 feet under still alive in a box full of acid.

  • Makgoana - 2011-01-10 17:19

    He deserves something worse than death if there is any

  • executiveassistant.pa - 2011-01-10 17:47

    The government should just let the public deal with these rapists. We will set a good example on just a few of them and trust me, rape will be a thing of the past. I am not a violent person, but this sort of behavior on innocent children makes my blood boil and I know if I ever had to come close to one, I will not be able to control myself.

    Death is too good 4 him....i say tie his ass to a tree butt naked and let the fire ants deal with him the rest of his natural life....
