Mpumalanga rape accused in court

2013-03-08 14:15

Johannesburg - A man accused of raping his daughter for 12 years appeared in the Nelspruit Regional Court on Friday.

Magistrate Willie Wilkins postponed the matter to 3 April so the man could appoint new legal representatives after his lawyer withdrew.

"I have consulted with my wife and she told me she was busy organising me another attorney," said the 53-year-old man from Kanyamazane, near White River in Mpumalanga.

He also refused to have an interpreter, stating he would testify in English.

The man has not yet been asked to plead.

He allegedly raped his daughter, now 23 years old, from the age of 11, impregnating her three times since 2001 and forcing her to terminate the pregnancies.

The man, who also has two sons and is a taxi owner, was arrested in March last year.

      Something in me as a woman fails to refer to the wife as a woman, I don't think she is the mother of this young woman if she is busy protecting this pig, this is sick, very sick....

      The mother must also be charged - she KNEW about it all this time and did NOTHING! Poor child..

    What kind of a mother stands by and not do anything to protect her daughter???? Why is she not in jail also???? WTF ! When you become a parent your biggest role is to protect your children with animal instincts if might be, against anybody, even your pathetic excuse for a partner. It seems to be true that dogs take better care of their litter than some humans can even dream of taking care of their children.. Hope both these disgusting parents burn.. Sies !!!!!

    Women will do anything in d name of love or money. Because its either his wife loves him so much that she doesn't want him to go to jail or she is thinking about the money she is bringing in the house. She is doing this all at the expense of an emotional, traumatised soul(daughter). I'm speechless

    It's my honest opinion that this man should be dragged between 2 Police Cars driving in the opposite direction! Bring back the Death Penalty @Jacob Zuma!
