Johannesburg - A man has been arrested for raping his 16-year-old neighbour in Mmabatho, North West police said on Saturday.

    RAPE - the zuma-dynasty "national sport" well and truly imbued into the youth mindset POSSIBLY at a greater level than legitimized theft

    give him to the community to deal with him, don't wast money on court trial and prison. these incidents occur every day in some communities - some people have not evolved and are still living in the 90s lol.

      so Bosepa, one day when you are grown up and god forbid have a daughter whom is dating a guy that rapes her cause she does not want to have sex with him, that be ok for you. Lets say your mom is dating a guy and is raped cause she does not want to have sex with him, that be fine as well. Man you are a bigger idiot than your comment applies

    South Africans must ask Aljazeera and journalists in Swazilan to teach them how to report a story in full.How old was the man and is he the same guy who raped the 17 year old or this one is just being brought up to lengthen the story and word count? has anyone been arrested for that case.and if the suspect and the victim were neighbours why did it take so long to get him arrested.was the girl taken to the doctor for proof or this guy is just anothe victim of unprofessional policing.please, we like to read your stories start taking us seriously.

    What is going on with South Africa, and specifically North West? Is it because we run to witch doctors for muti to solve our problems?
