'Parolee' held for rape of 94-year-old

2012-07-25 21:37

Durban - A 25-year-old man is to appear in the New Hanover Magistrate's Court on Thursday for allegedly raping a 94-year-old woman, police said on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane said she was attacked and raped in her home in the Emabheleni area, near the town of Wartburg in KwaZulu-Natal in the early hours of last Saturday.

Members of the African National Congress were planning a protest outside the court.

ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala said his information was that the man had recently been released on parole when he allegedly committed the crime.

"Scores of ANC members will demonstrate outside the New Hanover Magistrate’s Court to demand that bail be denied," said Zikalala.

"The ANC condemns this barbaric act in the strongest possible terms."

Wartburg is about 27km northeast of Pietermaritzburg.

      What a sick country South-Africa is.

      sticky.toffee - 2012-07-26 08:45

      Boer, its not the country thats sick. Unfortunately its some sick, pathetic idiots that really spoil the beauty of this land. From the corrupt politician who takes from the people he should serve to the sick rapist who destroys the lives of innocent people.

      Koos - 2012-07-26 12:09

      Give him to me.... I'll show you ANIMAL and SAVAGE.

      ann.murray.9279 - 2012-07-26 12:55

      I agree with Ian - animals most certainly do not behave in this way. WELL DONE JZ ALLOWING SO MANY CRIMINALS BACK OUT ON OUR STREETS!!! WHEN THIS WAS REPORTED ON 702 THIS MORNING IT WAS STATED THAT THIS ATROCIOUS OCCURRENCE HAPPENED IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LADYS' GRANDCHILDREN!!!! BLOODY BASTERDS.

      ann.murray.9279 - 2012-07-26 12:56

      @ ROOSTER COCKADOODLEDOOO - what made me mad was that we could not even comment on those 'proud' faces which were photographed in the dock. Faces of shame!

  • bob.small.7547 - 2012-07-25 21:55

    "The ANC condemns this barbaric act in the strongest possible terms." Then why did your leader let this animal out prematurely?? We don’t need your ANC balderdash rhetoric after the fact!

      Amanda - 2012-07-26 13:54

      A people show their character by how they treat their elderly and their young. Our black South Africans have no character when they can rape a 94 year old and drown a 12-year old boy is boiling water. Call me racist - I don't care anymore. Our society is beyond sick. We never had such crimes under Apartheid. People were kept in line.

  • carl.debeer.33 - 2012-07-25 21:59

    Build more prisons!!!and let them grow their own food!!!

  • iceman196 - 2012-07-25 22:01

    thank you very very much anc rubbish, thank you zoom zoom, thank you for your freedom day release of prisoners, sick bastards

  • sharon.erwin.96 - 2012-07-25 22:02

    "The ANC condemns this barbaric act in the strongest possible terms." If they feel so strongly about it, why don't they appoint a decent honest police commissioner, train the police properly, fix the justice system and build more prisons????? Every citizen in SA has the basic human right to feel safe. The ANC is failing the country and its people.

  • renier.lubbe.7 - 2012-07-25 22:03

    When a human becomes a beast no constitution should ensure his continued existence.

  • bradley.sharp.524 - 2012-07-25 22:06

    Very strange how the ANC can say "The ANC condemns this barbaric act in the strongest possible terms." yet I have not seen them comment about all the other serious murders, rapes and other crimes against our nations woman and children

  • BulletProof. - 2012-07-25 22:16

    Zooma is the one that should be in jail at end who allow recent parole to prisoners and how many similar crimes will happen?

  • Dawn Campbell Gibson - 2012-07-25 22:18

    Sharon / Carl - more prisons is not the answer! what we need is electric chairs, lethal injection, gas chambers maybe we can even return to some form of barbaric torture deaths for these pieces of $h1t.

      carl.debeer.33 - 2012-07-25 22:43

      Agree! bring back the death sentence! and stuff what the rest of the"bunny hugging" world has to say about it.

      phillip.harry.79 - 2012-07-25 23:22

      ...agreed, time these oxygen thieves started worrying about their 'early release' An example needs to be shown again and again and....

      Junebugg - 2012-07-26 11:49

      Agree!!!!!!

  • Erna - 2012-07-25 22:24

    Rape on a woman by a man is the ultimate crime, but to rape a woman of 94 is unbelievable! This woman is the same age as Mandela. Why is she not treated with equal respect? This crime can be blamed directly on the anc!

      irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-07-26 00:43

      Only a pure barbaric savage could do something like this. How can he possibly get it up for a 94-year-old woman? Then you look at the other bunch that raped a woman having shot her husband, and burnt their child in the bath. Who are these people that we are living amongst? The lowest of the low. Dregs of society. cANCer supporters.

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-07-26 10:26

      Irene, Ask Zuma, he let them out of prison. So in fact he is responsible for what happened to this woman. Some days I feel like cursing some people right into hell.

  • sekwati.robinson - 2012-07-25 22:29

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-07-26 10:28

      Sekwati, last week we celebrated a 94th birtday of another person. This lady is the same age as Madiba. Where are we heading in this country?.

      merven.halo - 2012-07-26 11:07

      'a new evil species among us' It is classified as group: ANCYL, of the ANC-family of parasites. A vile parasite of zero recovery and total destruction of the host.

  • mahomed.mather - 2012-07-25 22:44

    Its your ANC president that gave all these prisoners parole and now the anc wants to protest. How ironic.

      phillip.harry.79 - 2012-07-25 23:02

  • letsekang.masepe - 2012-07-26 02:34

    This parolee criminal knows very well that he wil be sentenced, and after 3yrs he will be paroled again for good behaviur in prison, this rapists are no longer scared to go to jail, we are in a very scary situation in this Country.

  • matsi.makoro - 2012-07-26 05:30

    Okay ryt,de guy is a parolee and de ANC wants to picket? Wasn't he part of Zuma's grand plan? Its sickening really and my question to Zuma/ANC at large is at \what cost?\..his grand plan to releas his buddies is costing unnecessary pain.

  • ludlowdj - 2012-07-26 10:45

    The ANC demonstrating against itself! you are the same b*stards who through you own hand voted for this to happen, ANC supporters are directly responsible for the failed state, for paroled convicts and poor service delivery. Accept that the best among the ANC support base, are the worst of society, people die to pay for your stupidity and gullibility, but what the hell, come elections you will be back at the polls voting them back in anyway. You truly deserve what is coming.

  • esther.coetzee.50 - 2012-07-26 11:38

    What is wrong with this people? Wish they all stayed on the planet they came from. Could some ANC-connected people get tenders to transport them back please,we do not need them here

  • dianne.neyt - 2012-07-26 12:11

    Filthy scum of the earth.....cut his frigging willie off with a rusty razor blade and let him bleed to death slowly!

  • john.loveland.9 - 2012-07-26 13:03

    "Members of the African National Congress were planning a protest outside the court." Right... and its their "leader" who's granted thousands of "get out of jail free" cards.

      esther.coetzee.50 - 2012-07-26 14:45

      They just want to see themselves on TV,that is why they want to protest. One is very important when you are seen on TV, remember!

  • Tari897 - 2012-07-30 10:17

  • courtney.harding.7 - 2012-08-01 18:26

    These barbarians that we have in SA aren't scared of jail anymore, because it's become a paradise for them. They get 3 meals a day, watch TV, get a nice warm bed to sleep on, toilets, showers, warm water, toiletries and a playground. That is Heaven for someone who doesn't want to work hard and earn money. I vote for the death penalty and torture! Then we won't have that much crime in SA.
