Cape Town cops probing 'rented teen'

2012-11-07 12:09

Cape Town - Police are investigating claims that a Cape Town mother rented out her teenaged girl as a sex slave for R50, it was reported on Wednesday.

She allegedly took her 13-year-old daughter to bushes or shebeens in Atlantis where she offered her to men, The Daily Voice reported.

The woman apparently used the money to buy herself alcohol.

The girl told a friends about the abuse, and the friend told a teacher.

She was taken to a shelter on Monday, when a case of rape and child prostitution was opened.

Police confirmed that they were looking for the woman and that they were compiling a list of the men who had sex with the girl.

Atlantis ward councillor and abuse councillor Barbara Rass told the newspaper the woman's arrest should be swift and that she should help the police with their investigation.

"I feel no mercy should be given to mothers who sell their own offspring. The court should deal with her like they would deal with someone who had underage sex with a minor," said Rass.

      No this is not african way, its all over the world. Poor child. Hope the mother will suffer the worst punishment

      arthur, no need to bring racism in to this, plenty of mothers the world over use their daughters like this to make money. I hope the mother is sorted out in prison by the other women, those who detest any sort of child molestation.

      deicide, please, I'd love to see the proof of that statement, could you copy the url and paste it here for all to see, or is your "fact" just one you made up?

      there was no need for you to show your retarded mentality with this comment but since you already did let's look at a few things.since politically correctly speaking the definition of an african person is someone who is born here then it includes all races not just one.two have you by any chance conducted a study to learn about 'the african way' and culture(in your context meanin black) ? I don't think so smart ass. And who told you such isn't happening amongst other races?have you not watched news reports where white/chinese/indian ppl were prosecuted for child prostitution and trafficking? If i were you i wld sit down and educate that primitive,racist,backwardmind of yours and at least generate a minimum of two braincells to rub togetha.

    You are no mother! F#ck your disgusting! If I was your daughter I would put a bullet through your cold heart. You are supposed to protect your little princess for as long as you possibly could! You are sick and twisted for 'renting' your child to these horny barbarians. You have a twat so rent yourself out. Hope you get burned cause you deserve nothing less. Hope the little angel will recover from this sad savagery.

  • lulu.shezi - 2012-11-07 13:34

    this is not a race issue,it's a HUMAN issue..nobody is driven by their race to do something..it's their mind and polluted soul that decides to.so those of you pointing the blame at race need a reality check..

  • Ntobane Setabola - 2012-11-07 14:01

    That is the same as what Irvin Khoza did with his daughter by renting her to Zuma mos...
