Johannesburg - A man accused of raping a 5-year-old girl appeared in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Friday, Limpopo police said.

The 28-year-old man would remain in custody and be back in court on June 26, for his formal bail application, spokesperson Constable Moses Molepo said.

"It was believed the girl was walking home from school on Friday, last week, when the man grabbed her and dragged her into nearby bushes, where he raped her."

The girl was walking with her mother on Wednesday when she recognised the man.

Molepo said the girl broke down and told her mother what had happened.

The mother stopped a patrolling police vehicle and the man was arrested.

    I'll say one thing. If my daughter pointed out her rapist to me in the street,,,the SAPS wouldn't be there to pick him up. They would be there to arrest me.

    It makes me sick on my stomach. Colour or creed is not the issue.An innocent child to raped by a barbarian is diabolical.This thing and future rapists must be hanged.It is getting out of control.This government must do something very soon.ALL citizens of this country should protest.

    of course this is crazy, but what i find worse that this doesn't only in public but so often in south african homes. Parents molesting their own children. Who writes about those dayly cases. Only if smth is especially gruesome somebody does smth about it.

      Rob - 2012-06-02 10:26

      smth=something ?
