Uitenhage dad guilty of raping daughter

2012-09-07 09:10

Johannesburg - A 43-year-old Uitenhage man has been found guilty by the Eastern Cape High Court in Port Elizabeth of repeatedly raping his 5-year-old daughter, according to a report on Friday.

The Herald reported that the court heard on Thursday that after the child's mother died in November 2009, her father started treating her "like his girlfriend".

The man's stepmother, who lived on the same property, first raised the alarm about his abuse of the girl. She told the court that after his girlfriend died the man started treating his daughter like his lover.

He isolated the child and shared a bed with her. He would rape her while her one-year-old brother slept beside her in the bed.

"He would also chastise her for smiling on the street but not at home, obviously suggesting that she was inappropriately flirtatious," Judge Revelas said in her judgment.

The man, who was aggressive in court, shouting at the police, told the judge during the trial to "lock up his daughter" and not him as she was the one lying.

"He told the court that he would not rape her as he had created her," Judge Revelas said.

Despite medical evidence that his child was badly injured during the rapes, he insisted she had not been raped.

State advocate Joel Sesar asked the court to sentence him to life imprisonment.

The man has a long list of previous convictions, mostly for housebreaking and theft, but also for assault.
He was expected to be sentenced soon.

      No, not good enough. People like this deserves the death penalty.

      peter.ndamase - 2012-09-07 09:44

      Send him back to the community to deal with him. They tend to punish criminals well than the justice system.

  • gieljam.gomtor - 2012-09-07 09:35

    This is a typical scenario where the Death penalty would have and should have been an IDEAL option , but then with a Majority that has more sympathy for the criminal than the victim suffer the consequences..

      maserame.kale - 2012-09-07 10:03

      He deserves the death penalty, yes!!!!\r\n\r\nI trust bitter people like you to make this whole thing about the \Majority\ Mxm!

      koos.meyer.52 - 2012-09-07 12:57

      Cut his thing off!!! Why are SA men such sexual predators???

  • drishworth - 2012-09-07 09:42

    Death penalty would be appropriate - but this marvelous Government makes such an appropriate sentence impossible - heaven forbid that we encroach on this disgusting specimen of a human being's constitutional rights!

  • cyril.laubscher - 2012-09-07 09:43

Hate stories like this and please change the picture News24 this story is sad enough already without trying to add to it

  • nicolaas.geldenhuys - 2012-09-07 09:44

    We're dealing with one sick son of a bitch...

  • arianna.tara.9 - 2012-09-07 09:47

    My heart aches for a precious angel robbed of her innocence far too soon. The punishment should fit the crime, but what punishment would be enough for it all seems too little....

  • janet.mcdonaldbelstead - 2012-09-07 09:49

    Chop off his you know what, shove something big up his rear end, and let him know what it feels like to have something where it does not belong! The little one will be scarred for life. Hope she gets the help and care she needs.

  • koos.vandermerwe.75 - 2012-09-07 10:12

    Only this godless government would give someone like this “rights”.

      jonathan.dutoit2 - 2012-09-07 10:57

      yes, when you behave like this, you relinquish all rights as a human!

  • jacques.stander - 2012-09-07 10:16

  • thomas.wilson.3745496 - 2012-09-07 10:29

    what goes in a mans head who thinks he can rape a child. The efforts should be focused on the child as its her who will suffer in long term, also don't forget the little boy. who had too witness this animal, let him rot. his own conscience will eat at him forever.

  • becky.jamieson1 - 2012-09-07 10:37

    What has this world come to? It seems everyday there is another father/uncle/cousin/nephew/brother raping our little girls. Shattering their innocence.... There are so many women out there, beautiful women... Leave our children alone...

  • jonathan.dutoit2 - 2012-09-07 10:56

    Oh, how i would like to get my hand on this guy!!! They must torture this guy by beating him, slicing him, burning. They must also have a doctor on standby so he doesn't die too quickly and to give him a blood transfusion whenever needed, so he doesn't die TOO quickly

      shelley.vorster.9 - 2012-09-07 11:44

      LOl I think you may just have to stand in line

  • bless.boswell - 2012-09-07 11:07

    Our system is conveniently soft on rape, because of you know who. If we rid ourselves of him, maybe things will change.

  • emanuel.ferreira.5876060 - 2012-09-07 11:37

    Bring back the death sentence. Society does not need animals like this. The world is overpopulated as it is. One less pig the better.

  • shelley.vorster.9 - 2012-09-07 11:43

    Okay I have a question for all of those who like to downthumbs the comments made by poeple saying this man should get the harshest sentence: What do you think he should get? A nice slap on the wrist and told Well Done chap? I can only ASSUME that you think raping your own daughter is allowed??? You people are sick SOB's

  • ron.bilyard - 2012-09-08 06:44

    And this is why we need the death penalty. Society doesn't need a monster like this ,nor should we pay to keep the rubbish.

  • michelle.kirsten - 2012-09-09 03:12

    Would that our tax money be invested in a single bullet to the head for the son-of-a-bastard, (cause I don't want to think of his mother as a bitch) Then the money they would have spent keeping this animal in gaol can be spent on his daughter instead. At the moment he gets to live rent-free and have all the opportunities to become even more monstrous after being gang-banged by \pappa\, then he gets paroled or escapes and the first thing he does is atempt to reclaim his \manhood\ by raping some more. SA Judiciary, wake up and smell the vicious circle

  • lisa.c.Biermann - 2012-09-20 20:06

    cut it off and make the bastard eat it. how in the hell can you rape your daughter you sick sick human being. you have ruined her life for ever... and distroyed her chances of ever having a normal life...
