Be at court, show support

2015-10-01 06:00

I WRITE to you today as a single mom and a very concerned South Coaster. A fairly well-known man was recently arrested for the alleged rape of a five-year old child.

It has since emerged through various social media channels that he has done this before and was acquitted in 2000 and the child then was apparently the same age as the recent victim.

I will not speculate on this man and his “alleged” crimes, (I have to use that word, as he has not been convicted or even appeared yet) but what I do want to say is this - we all need to stand together against these monsters and their heinous crimes against our innocent children. I urge all South Coasters to be at Port Shepstone Magistrates Court B on Friday 2 October at 9am to show that we will not tolerate this in our community. Let’s show our support for the children who have been harmed, for their innocence lost.
