2012-04-09 11:26

East London - A man was arrested for allegedly raping a nine-year-old girl in Centane, Mthatha, on Sunday, Eastern Cape police said.

On Saturday around 22:00, a friend of the child's brother came to visit him, but found the child alone in a room separate from the family's home, said Captain Jackson Manatha.

The 27-year-old man allegedly raped the child.

"It is not known where the brother of the victim was when she was raped," Manatha said.

The man would appear in Centane Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

      That is an understatement, the place is a hell hole!

    It's a very sad day when adults prey on little people. It shows a breakdown of morals and beliefs and a total absence of remorse. Is this what is being bred in our country?

      Shirley - 2012-04-09 12:40

      Believe me -trusting a man is the least of her problems!

  • Andrew - 2012-04-09 12:32

    Now I wonder from what community he came from???

      Kim - 2012-04-09 12:41

      Does it really matter???? WHITE men ALSO rape!!! Remember rape is any form of sex without the consent of the other person.

      Grace - 2012-04-09 12:52

      I agree with Kim... Who cares which community he came from! An innocent child was raped - something she'll live with for the rest of her life. No one deserves that!!!

  • Grace - 2012-04-09 12:34

    The rapist should be castrated. The parents should be charged with neglect... What was a 9 year old girl doing ALONE in a room SEPARATE from the house at 22:00 ??? She should be safe in bed INSIDE the family home

  • Frank - 2012-04-09 12:35

    Where is the Mob when you need them!!! - 2012-04-09 13:08

      You only hear about the mob when someone stole a cellphone or a handbag.Then they're quick to kill.Weird.Makes u wonder whats more evil in THEIR eyes !!!

  • Sharon - 2012-04-09 13:17

    Question: Why did he rape her? Answer: Because she was there! This is a sad country where a little girl is not even safe in her own home. She is now scarred for life and he will be out on bail before you can blink. Doesn't seem fair at all.

  • josi.ramolobeng - 2012-04-09 13:19

    Ai poor baby gir been robbed of ur womanhoodl!Hw barbaric and disgusting this is!how long,how long more,he must rot in jail,i think he did plan for this,he definately knew where and when the brotherwill be home and that he wont come anytime sooner untll he finishes his dirty work!

  • Cassandra Olivier - 2012-04-09 13:21

    Kill the monster

  • Andrew - 2012-04-09 13:25

    Grace and Kim I totally agree with you but unfortunately for what ever the reason the incidence is radically higher in some communities than others. It is a fact of life whether you like it or not. Just follow as I do every day what is on the internet in terms of these crimes. Then go and do research in USA and Europe for the same and you will find overwhelmingly the same results with one exception serial killers mainly come from the other ethnic group. Before you comment so freely do the homework. Who are the people screwing their students at schools for good results . Hve a wake up call you two before you defend the indefensible.

      Grace - 2012-04-09 13:31

      Andrew I wasn't 'defending' anyone. My point was merely that an innocent child was raped and the community from where she came is irrelevant! She never chose it. The important thing is that it should NEVER have happened and that's what the focus should be... NOT her address!

  • Mbuyi Mabuya Maphalala - 2012-04-09 13:36

    Ja neh, this is becoming very annoying and frustrating, murders, armed robberies, rapes you name it. Can we please have the death penalty back Mr President.

  • Andrew - 2012-04-09 13:45

    Grace perhaps the address is not important it is the event. My nephew who now lives in NZ was a jounalist from DURBAN and about twelve years ago he was the only person who intervied four innocent UK girls travelling froM Durban to Cape Town who were gang raprd by four Xkosas in the Transkei for hours. They survived and my nephew got a taped interview with them, the only one to do so, and I heard the tape. It would turn you into a complete and utter racist. He was offered back then R750000 for the tape for the international media but he had the integrety not to do so. It seems to me it is endemic with them as I know two others who been simmilarly abused but always the same ethnic group. Yes it is not exclusive but overwhelmingly. Sad but true. Enough said!!!

      Grace - 2012-04-09 14:22

      That was my point.. Not the address but the event! I'm quite aware these 'events' are more prevalent in certain areas but so are the victims. These statistics don't justify the deed. Full respect to our nephew for his integrity.

    Sick pig, cut off his balls and feed his uncle Bob. Ntl

  • Katlego - 2012-04-09 13:48

    This is getting out of hand now! And the police say we shouldn't take the law into our own hands? Clearly sentencing this animals will never deter them, I say a tyre, petrol and some serious ass-whipping would do! For how long our mothers/sisters/daughters would live in fear of us men? Damn!

  • Raj - 2012-04-09 14:00

    My sympathies to this little girl, A good punishment would have been to cut off his penis, but this cannot be done lawfully in South Africa. Also he should be Sent directly to jail, let him not pass a magistrate court. Put him permanently amongst his very kind in prison so he will know how it feels to be raped. New males are always welcome in the already full male prisons.

  • Pixie86 - 2012-04-09 14:06

    what shoddy reporting! Centane is no where near mthatha! It's near butterworth! Do these reporters actually research?

  • lusandalucy.makhasi - 2012-04-09 14:11

    Pig!!!..I say kill that dog,we're nt safe in our own homes because of these bastards!!!enough is enough man

  • catgirl1971 - 2012-04-09 14:11

    Hang these bastards! Enough is enough! No small wonder why some communities are taking the law into their own hands because there's no justice system that's effective in this country thanks to the cANCer that's ruling it!

  • Raj - 2012-04-09 14:12

    If ONLY the people of this country could stand together as they do when casting their votes when nominating people in power, so that we could have THE DEATH PENALTY BACK in force.

      tebomasha - 2012-04-09 16:44

      I also think death penalties is the answer . One less monster to worry about.

      Karl - 2012-04-09 20:20

      No man,not death penalty thats cruell,they must just cut balls off....

  • Judith - 2012-04-09 14:51

    I am beginning to feel that all male babies should be euthanized at birth and all males who are around should be tagged and followed electronically. Women can produced children, if they so wish, without men impregnating them. Sounds outrageous and I love my husband dearly, but what is going on is totally unacceptable

      Judith - 2012-04-09 14:55

      Meant "can produce children"

  • justice.mpho1 - 2012-04-09 17:14

    I have the necklace ready...anyone who has the guts to slash off his nuts please help make this country a better place,these slackers,home brewed rapists,murderes e.t.c are really affecting our food supply,let alone our economy...hang them all and deter the society.albeit some of them are parastatals!

  • Freek - 2012-04-10 11:29

    The best way to deal with an rapist is to CUT of his DICK

  • dynamitecandy - 2012-04-17 13:44

    Disgusting!!! Full stop!!!

  • chet.dreyer - 2012-04-17 16:39

    Any man who rapes a child or woman,deserves nothing less than the death penalty!
