Mom turns on raped daughter

2012-11-02 10:33

Cape Town - A 14-year-old girl from Stanford in the Western Cape is considering committing suicide after her mother turned against her after she was raped by her uncle.

The teenager said her mother wanted her to drop the charges against her brother, reported the Daily Voice.

The family is divided over the rape that happened last week. The girl’s mother walked in during the attack.

“I was glad when she came (into the room) because I thought she was going to help me but she started to scold me and fought with me,” the emotional girl told.

The mother admitted hitting her daughter but said she did it to get answers from her.

“I later withdrew the case because he is sensitive in his head and they said that my daughter is already sexually active,” the mother said.

She said she wanted her brother to be freed and didn’t want him to go to prison.

But her traumatised daughter said: “I feel like taking my own life because she chose him over me. I feel the case must continue.”

    I wish I could get hold of that mother she is not a mothers @ss. Feel so sorry for the daughter hope there is somebody to help her to get through this.

      The mother and her brother need to sit in jail for a long time!!!

      lownabester - 2012-11-02 11:03

      If her mother cant help her, WTF, Put this rubbish in jail with the "sensitive" brother, What's that, a child molester!!!

      ally.oh.7 - 2012-11-02 11:04

      That's no mother! Lock her and her brother up for good -- in fact, put them in the same cell and he can rape her whenever he wants and she shouldn't complain.

      maylani.bezuidenhout - 2012-11-02 11:06

      At the end of the day she is a minor Susanna. And that makes it rape no matter what the other circumstances. Your first responsibility is always to your child.

      tannie.marie - 2012-11-02 11:07

      Susanna - read again - the mother walked in on them while he was raping her. Set up? No.

      maylani.bezuidenhout - 2012-11-02 11:09

      And this is why most rapes go unreported... the poor victim is always the first who must stand trial! And Rape Crisis is going to close it doors because it doesn't get any funding. Please donate! That's the last thing this country can afford to have happen.

      jannie.beirowski - 2012-11-02 11:20

      The daughter should see that there is a reading from the good book to the mom. Although the raping stopped when she entered, ir continued by way of an assault on the daughter. She should charge the mom with assault and it should be a quick case as she has already admitted in doing so.

      merven.halo - 2012-11-02 11:42

      Some people shouldn't have kids.

      bibi.vanzyl - 2012-11-02 11:42

      Susanna: how do you know this 14 year old was manipulative? 14 year old is under age. Full stop. Whether she was sexually active (most teenagers in SA are anyway - across the colour spectrum)is besides the point. Rape is rape.

      Susanna, you are a disgrace to women and part of the problem that is rape, child and woman abuse. Your attitude is the reason why so many people get away with these crimes. I certainly hope you are not a mother. You would fail to protect your daughters and encourage a belief in your sons that girls don't mean it when they say no.... I am curious, do you believe women shouldn't have the right to vote or work? Shame on you.

      christopher.shining - 2012-11-02 12:10

      Shoot both of them in the head.

      arthur.hugh - 2012-11-02 12:14

      That poor little girl... I cannot fathom what level of retardation that mother must be at. I hope you read this, shame on you!!! Your son should rot in jail, you do not deserve a daughter. If anything, that mom and brother should commit suicide.

      rupesh.hari.7 - 2012-11-02 22:37

      Charge the mother for abetting the attack. Put both of these rubbish in jail.

  • lorain.maseko - 2012-11-02 10:41

    My gosh, I just cant get some people. Poor child.Anybody with a good grasp of the English language please explain what this means "I later withdrew the case because he is sensitive in his head"

      volschenk.d - 2012-11-02 10:47

      I think she means he's rowing with one oar, or he should actually be in some mental institution.

      modumo - 2012-11-02 10:57

      it means "wa hlanya" lol @ rowing with 1 oar

      lorain.maseko - 2012-11-02 11:03

      Not an excuse he should still have that thing cut off,especially if he is rowing with one oar that means it'even more dangerous for him to have a sexual organ.

      gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-11-02 11:07

      The lights are on, but there's nobody home, or, his shelves are not properly stacked .

      LanfearM - 2012-11-02 11:25

      Hmm, I don't know if she means he is a "sensitive" guy, or if she means is slightly "slow". I think she meant the latter, i.e. that he is slow. Can't understand how a mother can react like that, yet it happens so often where children are abused and raped by family members that the mother turns a blind eye. I just don't understand that.

      It sounds like he needs a few "hits to the head".

  • mokantanechristian.lekgothoane - 2012-11-02 10:41

    Gizzz what the hell, what kind of the mother is this?

  • VuurEnBloed - 2012-11-02 10:42

    was it her uncle or brother? her after she was raped by her uncle. and drop the charges against her brother Pathetic reporting

      JohncarlosBiza - 2012-11-02 10:45

      Daughter's uncle, mother's brother. Accurate reporting

      goeie.jaarling - 2012-11-02 10:46

      Her uncle and her mother's jy bietjie stadig?

      patrickhamish.hyland - 2012-11-02 10:47

      The poor girls uncle would be the mother's brother, not so? Think before you leap on the high horse eh?

      barry.mcbride - 2012-11-02 10:52

      LOL, I'm not sure what the issue is? The mother’s brother is the girl’s uncle, being the same person obviously.

      firstseed.mbeva - 2012-11-02 11:12

      Speed reading can be dangerous,hahahahaha!

      LanfearM - 2012-11-02 11:23

      Huh? Did you read the article? It was the 14 year old girl's uncle, i.e. the mother's brother.

      diana.gill.18 - 2012-11-03 09:14

      Does it matter, brother or uncle, once the rape occurred? A rapist whoever it was must be punished.

      shengeboy - 2012-11-12 12:01

      accurate reporting, re read please.did you even read the article?are you friends with this woman???

      Like brother, like sister, both soft in the head.

      merven.halo - 2012-11-02 11:43

      I don't think as a minor she can drop the case, the State will take over and charge the pig anyway.

  • talana.malherbe - 2012-11-02 10:48

    As a mother, I am shocked to the core! Lady, your daughter is God given, you are responsible for her well-being and after the worst thing that can happen to a woman happened to her still being a child you worry about keeping your rapist brother out of jail??? You don't deserve to be a mother!

  • dewaldt.duplessis.5 - 2012-11-02 10:49

    Shame poor girl! F#ck the sick demented uncle and sick ass mother! If it was my brother having sex with my daughter I would grab a blunt knive, cut out his testicles and slit his throat! I'm thinking this sick woman that is calling herself a mother is also plunking her brother. Talk about inbreeds! Hope this girl girl gets all the help she needs. Please don't take your live you are more than that.

    A young girl has been raped and her "mother" who walked in on the incident wants to drop the charges. I'm speechless. In the mean time somebody is more concerned about grammar. WOW.

  • gerrit.vanpletzen - 2012-11-02 11:05

    When the girl needs her mother the most, she is treated like the real criminal. What kind of mother would do such a thing? She should be sterilised, as she is unfit to be a mother.

    How much did the so called uncle pay this crazy mum to rape her daughter?

  • colleencramage - 2012-11-02 11:26

    What does it matter if she's sexually active? Does it mean that rape is OK? OMG!!! Never ever is rape ok. Even if the rapist is mentally retarded. Not only is there medication to help sexual urges, but teaching right from wrong also helps. I can't believe that a mother could actually disregard what has happened to her daughter.

  • thomas.g.loeser - 2012-11-02 11:27

    ..... an herein lies the bigger problem, we've lost all sense of what is right from wrong?.......A sick society?

      Thank fully Thomas, not all of us but certainly way too many for the general good of society......

  • tony.ezendam - 2012-11-02 11:28

    Are they from Brakpan? Seriously, this is a hideous crime. Lock both of them up and throw the key away.

      jeanetta.taljaard - 2012-11-02 11:56

      Can't you read? Everything that goes wrong in this damn country doesn't happen in Brakpan. As a matter of fact, open your eyes, and have a good look at the other East Rand town, and you will find far worse than Brakpan.

    May this mother rot in hell!!!

  • lvhukeya1 - 2012-11-02 11:52

    ofcos blood is thiker than water\ i don't blame dat mother but on de other hand dat uncle must be sent to jail.

      cindy.naude.79 - 2012-11-02 13:36

      blood is thicker than water, sure, so are you saying her DAUGHTER is not her blood....? stupid argument

  • tiny.mathale - 2012-11-02 12:01

    my question is, what does the police say? did they withdraw the case?

      kseyffert - 2012-11-02 23:50

      I am guessing, but I assume the child will have been removed and placed in a safety home. Social services will investigate the issue with the police force and together they will make a recommendation to the courts. If the facts transpire as reported here, I hope the uncle and mother never again see the light of day outside of prison...

  • smahlaba - 2012-11-02 12:08

    Damn. This is a disturbing story. The girl needs to be under the care of a different person and not the mother. Whether the girl is sexually active or not this doesn't excuse the fact that the uncle has abused his niece.

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-11-02 12:14

    He wasn't only sensitive in his head but somewhere else too. Both mother and brother deserves jail time

  • claudia.markgraaft - 2012-11-02 13:27

    I am a mother and not even the Creator will be able to help the person who touches a daughter of mine.....We as mothers are there to protect our children. It's an instinct you naturally have when you give birth to them.....this woman makes me ill!!

  • - 2012-11-02 13:31

    You sick sick woman....I hope you rot in hell,better yet I hope that when your daughter is old enough to leave and get out of your grips & on with her life she never forgives you for what you have put her through. You will be a lonely old woman! To the daughter...I am so sorry you had to go through this....but please whatever you do don't give up....your story will have a happy ending, be strong and fight and help other's who are going through this. You will be an inspiration to others, don't ever doubt yourself as you have done nothing wrong.

      She does not have a choice. She is a minor. the state will take this to the end.

  • stefan.kruger.1297 - 2012-11-02 14:08

    So this article says she is considering suicide... I wonder what the reporter of this article said to her... Maybe some advice on NOT KILLING HERSELF... but instead... She is considering... Can you see what the hell is wrong with society... were standing here, and saying.. ah she wants to kill herself... but what are we doing about it?? Plus.. Shes 14 year old girl dammit!! you can send her to me or thousands of other people that WILL ACTUALLY TAKE CARE OF HER... Unlike this useless mother... She obviously doesn't deserve this child... May your soul be spit upon...

  • Moi - 2012-11-02 14:28

    How tragic. That poor child. It's no surprise that she is contemplating suicide. If your own mother doesn't take your side when she walked in on her being raped, then she must be thinking that no one else is going to take her side either. As for that "mother", you aren't fit to carry that title. Breeder, yes, mother, most definitely not.

  • liezel.bester.9 - 2012-11-02 16:31

    Rape is rape,no matter if it is your mom's brother,cousin or heart goes out to this child,I hope God can heal her wounds.It saddens me that the one person she trusted and loved turned her back on her...what is happening to society???

    how can the Mother do this, she's not a mothers ass worth

  • - 2012-11-07 13:04

    I too feel the case must continue, so what if she is sexualy active? does that give him the right to rape her? sensitive in his head? not sure what that actually means, but because it does have a meaning to be uphold does surely mean that he knew what he was doing, so I feel 100% that this case should go on, and to the mother, ay ay ay, you suppose to protect your kids from EVERYTHING and EVERYONE that poses a threat, no matter who or what !

  • toni.k.mcquillen - 2012-11-08 12:37

    As if rape victims dont have enough to deal with, to get scolded by her mother whilst she is being attacked, and then her mother taking the side of the person that did it? I dont even want to know what emotional scaring this poor child will have to live with. They should both rot in jail, this child deserves so much better!

  • sharyn.dabbs - 2012-11-08 14:09

    This woman should go to jail, and have all her children removed from her care.

  • fiona.s.ferris - 2012-11-09 13:07

    The case must continue little girl. Hope you find some support. And that your "mother" and uncle gets thrown in jail. Your uncle and mother is at fault in this case, no matter what the argument is. Hope you find some peace.
