Women held for raping mentally ill teen

2012-04-21 14:30

Johannesburg - A girl and a woman were arrested in Soweto on Saturday for allegedly raping a 17-year-old mentally ill boy, Gauteng police said.

The alleged perpetrators had been on the run since last Sunday, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

One of them, also aged 17, was taken to a place of safety.

Makhubela said police suspect the boy was drugged.

"After the rape the boy told his granny what happened and she immediately came to police," he said.

Makhubela said this rape was similar to three other unresolved cases which involved women drugging and raping men.

      Wait for the following story where we likely to read that the courts dropped the charges due to a lack of evidence. Recently our butth0le judicial system dismissed several cases which were caught on camera, but I bet with this specific case they will say until we see a video of the boy being raped, the suspects are innocent.

      wrong, certain parts of South Africa and certain locations of South Africa. Two such crimes reported in a matter of days, same locale. Also a calling card when break ins occur. Going to take a few hundred years yet for a compete civilized society to happen on these shores

      When the previous case started to subside, this one just had to pop up, to tarnish the image of our country even further. Now foreign men will think that south african women have low morals, the image of most south african men has already been blemished with the previous sadistic case. We just a bunch of diseases and parasites under the international microscope.

    This article really saddened me very deeply. Absolute no regard for human lives or morals. Why are we seeing such a huge increase in the breakdown of our value systems and in the adherence of law and order? What is really going on? Somewhere along the line there is something critically and seriously wrong with some of our young people these days. What it is or where the problems are I am not sure? Nevertheless, we need to become politically conscience and active. We need to mobilise and participate in campaigns to raise awareness about social issues like rape, alcohol and drug abuse, unemployment, poverty, crime, corruption, just to name a few, affecting our communities and the country as a whole. Political activism can really make a difference. If citizens of conscience apply sufficient force on our government, we can make a significant change for the better for all who live in South Africa.

      Shirley - 2012-04-21 15:08

      If parents educated their children from toddlers to do the right thing,monitored what they were doing as teenagers and were good examples themselves,half the battle would be won. Children lack morals today and are used to there being NO consequences for bad behaviour.

      madise.paul - 2012-04-21 15:18

      Shirley don't blame parents for these senseless behavour! its their choice to have done what they did...we know of university gratuades who r morally corrupt, and apartheid was created by educated heartless people.

      Shirley - 2012-04-21 15:25

      If you have been raised correctly,taught the differences between right and wrong and had parents who set good examples then it would make a differnce. Before the person gets a university degree-he/she is a child and has to be raised....? Or does having a degree change everything you have learnt from birth!??? As for your pathetic "aparthedi" remark-what has that got to do with RAPE???????????????

      catgirl1971 - 2012-04-21 15:41

      @Dulla - I am not sure about involving politicians - they are part of the problem and as long as people keep voting for them to a large extent they will turn a blind eye to so many of the issues you mention. ... but one can start by changing what happens and how people think in our own families and immediate social circles. To me that would be a good starting point! ... but do we have the courage to stand up and be counted?

      Patsy - 2012-04-22 15:43

      Not enough discipline in homes and schools. My father was a strict, Victorian disciplinarian. He only ever smacked me once, so violence is not a requirement. But I bless him every day for what he taught me. We need to teach people discipline.

    This shows rape knows no gender. I would expect other women swam the court like what they do when rapist men are on trial. Its no longer a campaign of violence against only women and children but also men

      Cornelius - sadly - you are very right. Although women and children bear the brunt of it. Men are are being increasingly subjected to all forms of abuse - verbal, emtotional, physical and sexual but unlike women who (usually but not always) have the ear of the police, social workers etc the men cannot readily get help and are usually ridiculed.

BTW now get rid of that ridiculous 'no violence against women and children' campaign as it, along with HIV/AIDS and other anti-whatever campaigns are a total waste of time, effort and money. This country is fast approaching its descent into hell, so rather use that money and try and rejuvenate our morals - starting with that polygamist Jacob Zuma.

      They need to be dealt with just as harshly. Their actions are just as destructive to an unwilling male, as for an unwilling female. If it were consensual it would not be rape - hence no problem. Perhaps the women involved here have an axe to grind so they choose a victim who is clearly not a threat. This was a disgustingly cowardly thing to do.

    Go for it Jacob Zuma maybe you can get them pardoned too. They are just following the leader. No wonder South Africa is rated as the "Rape Capital" of the world. We have such good leaders setting examples soon we will have the honor of being called the "Corruption Capital", "Crime Capital", "Drug Capital", "Polygamy Capital" of the world. Maybe we should start a list? Anybody got any suggestions we can add?
