A man who allegedly raped a three-year-old girl was expected to appear in the Nqamakwe Magistrate's Court on Friday, Eastern Cape police said.

Captain Jackson Manatha said the rape took place at Mpukane village.

"The victim was allegedly raped on Sunday by the suspect while [the child's] grandmother was attending a funeral," Manatha said.

"It is not clear if she was left with the perpetrator, but when the granny came back, she was alerted about the rape and she opened the case."
