Cape Town - A Cape Town woman has testified in court how she saw young girls visit her neighbour during school hours while they were in uniform and felt it wasn’t 100% right.

Chanelle Brandt told the Parow Regional Court that she moved into the house next to the alleged paedophile in 2009 and after a while noticed several girls of between 12 and 14 coming and leaving the house, reported Eyewitness News.

Johannes Kleinhans, 74, is on trial on 95 charges relating to sexual grooming, sexual assault and child pornography.

It is alleged that Kleinhans gave the girls money and gifts for naked photo shoots.

The trial continues.

    It's in their genes, the poor little girl is not the only victim. There are many more. Paedos

    Its not in their genes Sebenza its a mental disorder, where the brain is attracted by the "wrong" stimulus and needs to be readdressed by manipulating the brain to be stimulated by the "right" stimuli, they are still working on techniques of cognitive behavioural therapy, where they have had some success of helping these people to be attracted to a more appropriate sexual concept, they is no 100 percent cure though as yet, but we are getting a little better at understanding this illness.

    @sebenza and @hannah, I don't suppose it really matters whether it is genetic or and aberation in the brain - whatever it is I don't believe that such a person can be rehabilitated. It almost seems sad that they can't help what they are 'turned on' by by sure as hell they have the choice to act or not on the impulse. The man is 74 years old and has probably been abusing young girls ever since he became sexually aware - how many girls have therefore been his victims? He must face a severe punishment.
