      A Grandfather at 40? The granddaughter is 10 years old. That means that he was 30 when she was born. What do these people do - breed?

  • ulandi.potgieter - 2012-12-31 08:17

    Grandfather my A** he is a monster a innocent child of 10yrs he needs to be hanged. What kind of father was he to his own daughter? If he hasn't got a wife any more there are street corners with woman who sell their body's. I hope the 10yr old is given help and checked out this really up sets me really it does.

  • mandlapm69 - 2012-12-31 08:33

    My question is if the grandfather is 40, and the granddaughter is 10, how old is the mother of this victim/child?

  • Mike Peach Purchase - 2012-12-31 08:33

    So what if he is generalising at least he speaks the truth or do you support rapists.

  • nkhangwe.madzivh - 2012-12-31 08:37

    He is only 40 and a grandfather of 10,He was 30 when the kid was born,how old is the mother or father of a victim?with all this calculations,there is a big sex problem in the family.

  • lionel.defrontignac - 2012-12-31 08:42

    No marching for this... but paint a bad parody called The Spear...

      lionel.defrontignac - 2012-12-31 14:28

      A Freudian slip of the keyboard there? Okay: let's all meet at the Union Buildings at 10 am tomorrow. Done and dusted. You missed the point.

  • edwin.morena.3 - 2012-12-31 08:48

    SA, capital of rape nd rapists......

      themba.thwala.775 - 2012-12-31 08:58

      Everyone who lives in SA knows this. How does your statement change anything?

  • Don.Tandy - 2012-12-31 08:57

    Sick - but also sick is a 40yr old with a 10yr old grandchild - a scenario where rape is possibly not perceived in the same vein as civilised human beings?

  • arlene.daly.3 - 2012-12-31 09:00

    What a sick sorry bunch of people we have become.... if we not committing these crimes we not helping prevent them either... or in the least getting rid of the scum trashing young lives

  • roman.caesar.121 - 2012-12-31 09:15

    IF HIS 40, HOW OLD WAS HE WHEN HIS DAUGHTER/SON(parent of the 10yr old grandaughter) WAS BORN? his grandaughter is 10, that means he was 30 when she was born. danm they can breed at a young age.

  • aroka.murombe - 2012-12-31 09:30

    Roman caesar u hv a point...... this whole thing does not make sense biologically how do u bcome a grandfather at 40? Someone explain please

      logical007 - 2012-12-31 09:40

      He was 15 when he had daughter. Daughter was 15 when she had her daughter. Grandad was 30 then. Daughter is now 25 (where she is, is my question) her daughter is 10 and grandad is 40! Where is grandmom and 10 yr olds' parents?

  • aroka.murombe - 2012-12-31 09:43

    I dnt mean to be absurd but this family smells rape... 40=grandfather mmmhmmhm I beg to differ

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-12-31 10:15

    A forty year old grandfather?.

  • Dawn Campbell Gibson - 2012-12-31 10:27

    I guess this could make sence. Since males the same age as her are considered brothers and females are all sisters. Extended family like you only get in SA.

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-12-31 10:33

    Its high time that rapists were dealt with severely, apart from thrown in to prison, they should be castrated on the spot. There are prostitutes he can use, no need to rape children.

  • annie.israel.50 - 2012-12-31 10:35

    Africans breed like rabbits - IT IS THEIR CULTURE - SHOCKING NEWS THOUGH - this piece of filth should be hung by his "knackers"!!

      wessel.jordaan.3 - 2012-12-31 10:49

      ANASKA...that is way out of line and a gross insult to all black South Africans...think twice before you say or write something because if you do you would not have said this...there are many black South African mothers and fathers ...that are the best of parents under difficult circumstances... I apologise profusely on behalf of all the balanced white Africans!

      jennifermartin860 - 2012-12-31 11:02

      You really should think before you post a comment like this. You obviously know very little about African culture if you lump us all as breeding machines. The point of this story is that a horrible man violated an innocent child, culture and race do not figure into the equation.

      2deepblu - 2013-01-01 13:57

      anaska you're smoking teabags. A child was raped here

  • thembeka.sithole.7 - 2012-12-31 10:37

    I really not clear about the age of grandfather,they something wrong in family,poor child

  • wessel.jordaan.3 - 2012-12-31 10:43

    One solution...and its not so horrible considering what he did to this child...put 10 bicycle tires around his neck and burn the sub-human...give him to his community...they will show him the error of his ways

  • Nhlanhla Zondi - 2012-12-31 10:54

    Some men really gives us (good men) bad name seriously, i turn to ask myself as to how these people enjoy violating other human beings?

      ulandi.potgieter - 2012-12-31 11:02

      I so agree there with you it gives other fathers, uncles, brothers a bad name and it is harder for us woman to trust a man.

  • Melecia Boonzaaier Zijlstra - 2012-12-31 11:38

    Anaska, thats a very stupid comment. There are white people in squatter camps who breed like rabbits too. Any person that violates another like that should receive the death penalty. All rape and child abuse is wrong!!!
