    There should be only 1 punishment for sickos like this-the death sentence!!! There is no rehabilitation for a person who commits such vile acts and is a waste of taxpayers money jailing him. Death sentence and be rid of the scum!

      Agreed!But not by hanging or injection, that's just too quick!!!! Bastard

    Okay South Africa, enough now! That is enough! Stop this destruction of our children, of our women, of our animals. A society is judged by the way it treats its children. It is also judged by the way it treats it criminals. The useless, useless anc is on trial here and the verdict is guilty on both counts. Guilty of failing to care for our children. Guilty of failing to sufficiently punish criminals. If the deterrents are so severe as to make a twisted, sick fvck reconsider, then they are effective. If he/it is so sick that no deterrent on earth would work anyway, then remove his life from his body, under extreme pain and publicly. At the moment there are no deterrents because the anc has criminality as its base. Useless, useless anc.

      much as i understand where u coming from, i don't agree with "useless anc". maybe to whites it is useless, but hey it brought light and change to the life of blacks. that is a fact 100%. BEE, AA, shelter, sanitation, water, electricity etc. things that were a dream to most black people prior 1994. Sorry if I burst yo bubble, just had to mention this part. lastly, don’t misconceive my comment, I aint saying ANC is functioning 100% well, there are a lot wrong things happening within it. I’m just weighting and counting only the good things it did for us “blacks”.

    These big brave warriors are at it again. Surely things like this should carry the death penalty.

    Oh, happened in a township? Nothing new here. Its the nature of the township animal.

    Janine: Whilst I agree with your sentiment, the fact remains that the culprit is a man. Disagree they are called BOYS as they are not men! Comment by Tickey & Friends against fatboy en sy ma winnie the poo.

    lEONARD: why waste time cutting wobbly bits off-just cut his damned head off and be done. These perps are released back into society all too quickly and within a month are doing it again. There is NO justice for the victims. I say shame on the law for not making this kind of behavior life without parole! All the pervs can work chain gangs fixing potholes etc at no cost!

  • Arthur - 2011-12-10 13:05

    Cut it off I say. And don't supply vaseline when he goes to jail.

  • Shirley - 2011-12-10 13:06

    Azande: You sell out cheap if you reckon the anc has done a lot for blacks in this country!Theyre too busy stuffing their own pockets and denying that we are in a serious crisis in many departments. These short falls I would like to add are affecting all race groups! Stop with the white/black thing if you EVER want this country to heal!!!!!

      Azande - 2011-12-10 17:01

      just a point of clarity. the governance issues which have led to gross maladmistration and corruption in the public sector do not erase the fact that pro 1994 we witnessed a significant change for better in the lives of so many people particularly blacks.ANC managed to bring so many opportunities to the majority of this country. Yes I reiterate, ANC has done a lot comparing to where we were when we smashed the chains of apartheid. Lastly, there’s yet still a lot to be done.

    How much further can a nation lower itself into the pits of depravity. What has happened to the slogan "PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN" Can any South African be proud of a nation that breeds the rape of a 5 year old child. Being proud of this country is synonymous to being proud of rape. Ashamed is a better word.
