Mute girl, 14, raped at school

2012-06-08 14:21

Johannesburg - A 14-year-old mute school pupil was raped in Soweto, Gauteng police said on Friday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubele said the mute girl, from Sizwile School for the Deaf in Dobsonville, was raped by three males in the schoolyard on Thursday afternoon.

"A worker at the school informed the police after she saw this incident," Makhubele said.

It was not clear if the rapists attended the same school.

On the same day, three men in a taxi took a 20-year-old pupil to a house in Zondi, where they allegedly took turns to rape her the entire night.

He said one of these men may have been the pupil's ex-boyfriend.

No arrests were made, but investigations were continuing.

      Chemical castration!

      Rob - 2012-06-08 15:27

      How do we assist those of a lesser intelligence to understand that this sort of behaviour is unacceptable ? It is a culture of arrogance, defience & complete lack of regard or respect for the law that breeds this type of person.

      @eil33nn. Chemical castration wont help, they need real castration with a butter knife. \r\nI'm actually done with this rape bull, i'm starting to think of going all dexter on these creatures, anyone willing to join me?

      im not justifying these sickening acts, but at the end of the day they will continue to happen anyway, the Bible says so 2 Timothy 3. its a sign of the times, the best we can do is give all women paper spray. and of-course ruthlessly punish all offenders - 2012-06-08 17:10

      kaMazibuko - 2012-06-08 14:47

      seriously u wanna take attention away from this sick crime and give it to the ANC ? Why not ask how far the police are with the investigation ? ask if any suspects have been BS about the Goodman gallery

      rofhiwa.rasivhetshele - 2012-06-08 15:00

      dont be an idiot, The ANC has nothing to do with this. Its our responsibility as a society to put an end to this.

      Joe - 2012-06-08 15:04

      @rofarse in a ward where the ANC gets vast majority of support and they are the national government it has an alful lot to do with them

      Matthew - 2012-06-08 15:08

      Street Justice is the only way.What dose anyone here think the SAPS will EVER do to help this country...nothing.just like they wont do a thing to catch the animals that did this. Its time the people took back the country from the evil that has placed it itself in our government. Find them,throw tyres over them,pour gasoline on them,throw a match and watch them burn.Let it be televied.let these thugs,pervets,rapist,murderers see that The People have had enough and that if...when we catch them,the peoples justice will be dealt. Or...we could just sit and moan about how terrible this is,whilst watching absolutely nothing happen.nothing at all SAPS wont do anything...neither will our government unless we protest

    Nothing changes same thing over and over, Sharia law will eliminate these scum in no time, or what do you suggest we all hold hands and pray for the problem to go away.

  • roger.howdy - 2012-06-08 14:43

    Why is NO 1 protesting and breaking things and demanding some justice??? Where is all the ANC supporters , Where is all the other supporters??? There is nothing else to say...

      kaMazibuko - 2012-06-08 14:48

      seriously u wanna take attention away from this sick crime and give it to the ANC ? Why not ask how far the police are with the investigation ? ask if any suspects have been caught....stop displaying your ignorance for all to see

      roger.howdy - 2012-06-08 14:59

      @Silhle... I guess you need to wake up and see that the ANC runs everything they have the power to stop and start anything. If they want to be the leaders in the Country then let ALL the ANC members that protested for the painting and everything else go and protest for the safety of the people and to get rid of all the Corrupt Police officials. Then come back with a comment. 1 person isn`t going to make a change its going to take EVERYONE to make an effort.

  • eyesears.handsfeet - 2012-06-08 15:12

    Why and what the hell for? Why are their so many rape cases? What are they trying to proof? Why take on defenseless children just to feel that you are in control. Should a rapist/s by any chance be reading this, please tell us what is the fun in this? I really do not understand. It cannot be the hunger for power / lust / humiliation of others, alone? What? What? What is it that you feel, see, want, do that makes this allright / acceptable? Why? What for? Why children, why old people, why women and why men? Even animals! Why? Why?

Please do not think I am talking black and white. it is the blacks who hate each other just as much. How can they not - look at what they do to each other. I am sorry can anybody please explain this.... raping, murdering.... throwing acid over a cousin over a bar of soap. WTF!

    We can't call them animals,as animals do not behave in this manner. A Minister once said a couple of years ago,to throw them in the old mine shafts.We must stop feel sorry for them and blame their background for their behaviour,throw them in jail so that they can be raped everyday for the rest of their lives!!!No Mercy!!!

Living it. Do not wait for a government to do it. If more help is needed and gov. cant, do not want to do it or simple ignoring you, you must also get rid of them. They are working for you. You gave them a mandate. You can take it away.
