      I am so tired, so very tired of news like this, Please let the Real men stand up and be counted, what's the use of us talking about it, Nobody does anything. Do we still have REAL MEN in our forsaken country.

      One Rape in India and there is a national outcry, we have plenty rapes every day and only a few of us online trawlers comment - not a word from Govt, but should we be surprised. I am glad for once people aren't making racial comments, whether the rapist is white, black or whatever is not the point, hang all of them!!!

    How sick can a nation be.

      themba.thwala.775 - 2012-12-30 22:28

      What logic is being used to attribute rapists' actions to the entire How "nation"?

      tobydt - 2012-12-31 01:20

      themba - 28% of women in SA have been raped... Not an isolated incident.

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-12-31 06:50

      . Yes, in SA, there is more chance for a woman to get raped , than to learn to read !!!!

      themba.thwala.775 - 2012-12-31 08:16

      Sinudeity, I don't understand your point. SA has about 51 million people. Are we saying the sample of rapists is representative of the entire nation? Can we say 51 per cent of men in SA are rapists? Are we not exaggerating a bit? I grew up in a street which had about 30 houses, and about 180 people. Two guys in that street raped. Okay let me digress and add that the one guy raped his mother, and got a beating of his life. He was saved by the same mother. The other guy's brother was a police officer. So nothing happened. Can one say the entire residents of 180 people in our streets are rapists based on the conduct of the two guys?

      enlightened.bowman - 2012-12-31 09:10

      we can still do better, trust me. You leave "them" to themselves and you'll see, after all, they have the exampe of the preident to follow.

      This one is not a man sister. A man is responsible, protective, provides and cares for his family and community. With my flaws and shortcomings, I consider my friends and I men.

      rude.awakning - 2012-12-31 06:12

      US, UK, China, Russia, India and even St Helena with the smallest population has problems with RAPE! Arab countries has the least rape cases if any at all! Maybe intoduce their laws and it will reduce it drastically! Chop...chop....chop!

      SarcasticAgnostic - 2012-12-31 09:20

      Arab countries have the least rape cases REPORTED. In those countries there has to be MALE witnesses, otherwise the woman is guilty of adultery. Women are scared to report their rapes in those countries!.

  • rude.awakning - 2012-12-31 06:05

    this is obviously a sensitive issue, more so for some than it is for others judging from some of the comments here. RAPE is still a terrible invasion of another person and no excuse can justify it!!! What makes this so despicable is that the father is the bastard! He was meant to protect his child from hurt and pain etc. How does he bring himself (sorry but being under the influence of alcohol or drugs...not an excuse!!!!) to hurt his girl like this! He cant be trusted in society and the chances are he has done this to someone elses daughter too! Really man there are females willing to let you get off for a fee, where ever you live, no force required! Now i hope that you are permanently removed for society, breadwinner or not! Whilst in jail i hope that you get voilently violated everyday you f*cking scumbag! And i know you gonna be somebodies b*itch inside! Sorry excuse of a man!

      calvin.eighteeseex - 2012-12-31 07:29

      I don't know if its stupidity or what that push people to such an extent that you must mention government's name in every topic even in a family matter like this, the hate you have within yourself could be deadly. In this case here its moral that is lacking, no one can protect dad to rape his daughter. School comes handy at times brother,you should try it.

      johnny.arnold.167 - 2013-01-02 08:31

      Rape is rape right? Same blood, different blood, doesn't change this fact. Yes it's more disturbing to think some idiot actually had the idea of raping his own daughter that he raised and supposed to protect and care for her. Point is, there are ways to combat this, asians have injections that make 'mister' useless, arabians have a nice sword to remove the problem, we should implement a drastic measure too.

      SarcasticAgnostic - 2012-12-31 09:23

      Isn't allowed? Are you saying your "all-powerful" god is powerless to intervene? Puny god. And what satanic rituals are you talking about?

      johnny.arnold.167 - 2013-01-02 08:20

      I think what Hein is trying to say, is that our government has slowly but surely taken God out of any equation. And as the 'oh so clever' masses follow their leaders examples, this country keeps spiraling downward. God will not go where he is not wanted. Would you go to a house where your name is being abused and people make a joke of you?

  • willie.botha.9480 - 2012-12-31 09:01

    A couple of years ago I felt that these people who rape mst receive death sentences. I still feel the same but know that ship has sailed. I think it is time to deal with these cases differently. Something hanging is bothering these people, so chop it off. Make sure that they are not men anymore because they feel like acting in such a manner.

      bless.boswell - 2012-12-31 09:19

      Willie, if you chop it off they will still rape. They will just use another implement. Their heads (both of them) need to stop working - permanently.
