Man in court for raping girl in class

2012-03-14 10:57

Durban - A teacher accused of raping a 12-year-old pupil will appear in the Howick Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

"The 54-year-old suspect was arrested on Monday... in Howick," Captain Thulani Zwane said.

The pupil had been sent by another teacher to fetch papers from the man, who allegedly led the grade 8 pupil to an empty classroom around 09:45 and raped her.

The pupil reported the incident to the school and police were called in.

Zwane said police were investigating a case of rape.

    haaai boo!!!!! teacher nogal????? am not saying these things should happen in high schools but one would expect such reports to be from high schools not primary.... someone cut that 54year old pipi, the old madala doesnt know where to use it mos

      Elize - 2012-03-14 11:33

      E24 news talking nonsense again, how can she be 12 and in grade 8?? Grade 8 is high school.

      Moi - 2012-03-14 11:40

      @Elize - I was 12, turning 13 in Std6/Gr8, so no, not nonsense.

      Garth - 2012-03-14 12:10

      @sechaba - your post goes a long way, to providing answers, as to what is wrong in this country. `one would expect such reports to be from high schools . . ..' No, I would not expect such reports in a normal society.

      Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-03-14 12:10

      Ntate Sechaba The report says Grade 8, which is high school. Doesn't make it any less disgusting though. I hope they pound his sorry ass in prison.

      verushab - 2012-03-14 12:31

      @ elise. My daughter is 12 yrs old and in gr 8. This is sad that the people we trust to educate our children can harm them in this way.

      Michelle - 2012-03-14 12:34

      @Garth- please reread @sechaba's comment. he clearly says (i do not say that this should happen)

      thutothegreat - 2012-03-14 12:36

      lol @Sechaba, Grade 8 is high school

      Bruce - 2012-03-14 13:35

      If a child starts school before it turns six, they will be 12 at the beginning of Grade 8. Children could start school as long as they turned six by the end of June in Grade 1.

      Sechaba - 2012-03-14 14:16

      lol eishhhh this grades thing are still confusing me even today, jah grade8/standard 6 is high school, am only realising now that i also was in Grade8 at the age of 12 turning 13.....but the old madala still need to lose his pipe

      Garth - 2012-03-15 10:53

      @michelle - you reread his post. The bottom line in what he has stated is: if they do happen one would EXPECT them to happen in high schools. I say that it is better that one should not EXPECT such things to happen.

  • Michael - 2012-03-14 11:14

    SA Investigate the root cause, this is getting out of hand.

      Thoka - 2012-03-14 11:59

      @Michael sorry mfowethu, this does not need any form of investigation. that will be a waste of time. he's got no morals and self respect.

      Schmee - 2012-03-14 12:42

      Root cause needs to be investigated, there are too many of these cases. This is not the only teacher with low morals. Maybe stringent background checks on teachers are not being done. What makes teachers think they can take advantage of young children? Maybe they get away with it too often.

      And she can get stoned?

      TBlogger - 2012-03-15 09:49

      Schmee, why would the girl be stoned? She was not engaging in the act consensually you fool. He would be castrated publically and shamed! If only.. If only..

    Teacher in court for raping girl in class: policemean in court for brutal assualt: So those who have protect people assault them and those who have to educate children rape them. This is the horror of South Africa repeated and reported on a daily basis year in nd year out. Then people call themselves human.

      TBlogger - 2012-03-15 09:49

      You couldnt have said it better J.D..

  • Greg - 2012-03-14 11:37

    It's hard to believe someone can actually follow through with such an act, and on a 12 year old child...was he so sex-crazed that he couldn't bear to restrain himself...what an animal!!! What has honestly become of people!!

  • Robsschele - 2012-03-14 11:46

    Men that rapes children are cowards because they are too scared and stingy to take a woman out and then to ask for sex. They are even too miserly to pay a prostitude.

      Moi - 2012-03-14 12:01


      Rob - 2012-03-14 12:11

      Men that " rapes " any woman are cowards, my dear. I trust you are not suggesting that taking a woman out to a good dinner @ a fancy restaurant will result in men being "rewarded" by the woman, (who incidently has been trained @ a young age to keep her hands in her pocket when it comes to paying)by means of sex that one has to ask for. "Right thats it then, I have spent a bit on you tonight, time for sex. " Surely not !!!!

      Garth - 2012-03-14 12:15

      My reply to sechaba's post, above, is ditto'd here. `. . . too scared and stingy to take a woman out and then to ask for sex.' There is something wrong with the inner machinations of your head.

      Marion - 2012-03-14 12:56

      @Robsschele - your logic escapes me. In fact I think it escaped you too. Are women to be treated like prostitutes after a date where the man pays for everything?

      Moi - 2012-03-14 12:56

      @ Rob - that's how I interpreted Robsschele's comment as well. Baffled. I feel sorry for the women he may date.

  • Laurice - 2012-03-14 11:50

    Race has nothing to do with it Andrew. RAPE IS RAPE. Theis sod should be handed over to the Mother, Sister Aunties and Grandmothers of this poor child, and let them hack his genitalia off with a blunt blade that has being laying in sewerage. Get well sweet Girl.

  • Mike - 2012-03-14 12:06

    He's part of the human race, the lower, slime, scum good for nothing part of the human race that rapes little girls.Mob justice, let the woman folk of the township, suburb, town take care of him. He'll be peeing from a tube the rest of his life

  • Goemamang Maropefela - 2012-03-14 12:10

    we as parents we are always worried about our kids playing on the streets,so now we also have to be worried about the teachers raping out kids,this is really nonsense he must be given a cruel punishment,so now who do we have to trust with out kids if even the teacher are able to rape them in school.

  • Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-03-14 12:14

    What does a grown 54-year old man see in an innocent 12 year old child? Child molesters are sick individuals. Uyinja man, sies.

      say it...BASTARD. That's what he is.

  • Althea - 2012-03-14 13:31

    What saddens me the most about this story is the fact that there are so many similar cases and yes, at primary schools too with victims much younger than 12, and most cases are reported but principals covers up because the image of the school will be destroyed and the police dockets mysteriously disappears and then the teachers denies the whole allegations completely. I say it again: "Should anyone, as in any living thing try anything on my daughter, I will personally do something so horrid that the whole of SA will want to sentence me to death thereafter" That I promise myself!

  • mluleki.simelane - 2012-03-14 13:57

    Something not right here

  • Lee - 2012-03-14 14:26

    Show his face to the public so we can f*ck him up

  • Rob - 2012-03-14 14:59

    What a sorry state we are in.....Let's hope that the teacher is dealt with severly. BUT, and I say this only to balance the situation, 12 year old girls have been known to behave in a very adult manner when it comes to provocation and sex. This fact does not make the teacher's behaviour any less wrong, but there are always three sides to a story.

      TBlogger - 2012-03-15 09:59

      How cute, reported my comment.. I say it again.. you are an arrogant fool, NO WOMAN DESERVES TO BE VIOLATED IN THIS WAY.. Get over yourself moron..

      Moi - 2012-03-15 10:46

      There is no balance to this situation. There is no "explanation" to a 54 year old TEACHER raping a 12 year old CHILD

      Garth - 2012-03-15 10:57

      critical-ho's-nest: you are a creature that has obviously only recently emerged from the depths of the primeval swamp.

      Let the rapist castrate himself, and slowly bleed to death.

  • Rob - 2012-03-14 18:41

    NEWS 24.....Stop it please. Your headline reads that the rape occured in a class The text says in a classroom There is a big difference Which is it?

      TBlogger - 2012-03-15 09:56

      CRTICALLY HONEST.. Stop it please.. Who gives a crap??

      Michelle - 2012-03-29 18:11

      @criticallyhonest Does it matter where the hell this vicious attack took place????? Class?? Class room??? No difference

  • TBlogger - 2012-03-15 09:47
