Shock over Welkom child sex video

2012-09-06 08:32

Bloemfontein - Residents of Welkom have been shocked by a cellphone video showing a 14-year-old girl having sex with a 20-year-old man.

The girl’s 12-year-old friend was apparently told by the man to make the video, reported Volksblad.

The children had been drinking alcohol with the accused at his flat after which they lay down on a bed because they felt ill.

The man then came in and said he wanted to kiss and cuddle with the victim. The younger girl was told to record his actions.

The man was arrested after the younger girl showed the video to friends at school and the principal called the police.

Neither the girl nor her friend were apparently able to remember the events of the night before.

The prosecutor in the case said the principal had acted correctly by calling the police.

The girls unwittingly also committed an offence in making and distributing the video but would probably only be told to undergo therapy and behavioural programmes.

The man was arrested.

    Hope he lays down with his new friends in jail!

      All I wanna know how does a 14 year old and a 12 year old manage to find sometime to drink?? When I was 14 I was suppose to play in front of my house or a Mall when the street lights come on..I should be inside the house.

    It is shocking. But what were these two young girls doing in a 20yr old mans flat, drinking alcohol in the first place.

      kelvyn.davidson.1 - 2012-09-06 08:55

      this question is an easy one, I have kids and kids are very easily influenced, drinking is seen by kids as a maturity thing, by getting drunk they think they are older and bigger than they are, stupid, yes, immature yes, but you need to remember that a 20 yr old is old enough to know that a child is a child and is out of bounds, I would hazard a guess that this was his intention, preying on their vulnerability, do not pass blame on girls making stupid decisions, an adult knows the difference ! Statutory rape is a mandatory sentence, with overwhelming evidence such as a video, he is going to know right from wrong very soon, lets see how he reacts to forced sexual behaviour

      @Kelvyn: Tell that to Goodwill Zwelithini. Not that I differ from you point of view but there seems to be mixed messages out there.

      Bad parenting breeds bad children.

  • Hemlock - 2012-09-06 08:51

    Dirty pervert......hope he gets tons of attention in jail and the 2 young girls get their asses whipped by their parents.

      diana.gill.18 - 2012-09-06 09:51

      To late to whip as the job is already done. Anyhow its shocking and disgusting.I believe those girls werent innocent angels, otherwise how they landed up in much older man's apartment, were drinking alcohol with him and the younger "victim" saw nothing wrong with filming sex. More than that later on she was bragging about this video without having a thought it might be inappropriate. The article says not even a word about girls' families, probably their parents are not fit to fulfill their duties. Does it take any part of the fault off their shoulders? They are as guilty as the offender himself.

  • koos.vandermerwe.75 - 2012-09-06 08:51

    What the hell was a 12 year old and a 14 year old doing drinking in a 20 year old man’s apartment? The man should be hung upside down by his tentacles for being an opportunistic a-hole but those little madams don’t sound too innocent to me.

  • eric.shinn.90 - 2012-09-06 08:53

    We had a vark, colleague, who when he was 27 years of age, made a 13 year old pregnant. Child welfare came looking for him but guess what??? THE FKING DOMINY FROM HIS CHURCH PERSUEADED THE PARENTS NOT TO TAKE ACTION, as a result he got away with it.

      Aphrodite - 2012-09-06 12:13

      If you've got nothing intelligent to say....SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE!

      jody.beggs - 2012-09-06 13:51

      @Aphrodite so the truth is not important to you ? Thought not ...

  • Jacky Mutsila - 2012-09-06 08:54

      eric.shinn.90 - 2012-09-06 09:09

      And you were totally street-wise when you were 14 ne??

      kevin.watson.7906 - 2012-09-06 09:10

      F**kwit they are too young to be held criminally liable for their actions. Their parents should be prosecuted, along with the man.

      eric.shinn.90 - 2012-09-06 09:10

      Still cant even spell out a decent sentence

      eric.shinn.90 - 2012-09-06 09:11

      jody.beggs - 2012-09-06 09:50

      Charge their parents , why were they not under supervision ?

  • utopian.idealist - 2012-09-06 08:56

    A reflection of our global and local society today...

      Aphrodite - 2012-09-06 12:14

      SHAME...Not getting any attention are you?

      jody.beggs - 2012-09-06 13:51

      Aphrodite - 2012-09-06 15:43

      Jody, You deleted your comments I see...I would too...plain embarrassing.

  • FourieGP - 2012-09-06 09:11

    This is way we are called the lost Generation, where is the discipline that you are thought at home to use in the everyday life. Hope the parents step in

  • randall.j.coetzee - 2012-09-06 09:13

    Why does the name Goodwill Zwelithini come to mind?... Anyway, hang this pervert by his testicles!

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-09-06 09:18

      I still remember a few years ago that pervert appeared on Tv addressing the youth at a stadium, imploring them to abstain, etc. Then it emerged that the bugger had impregnated a a teenager! Jislaaik, and we have to fund his luxurious lifestyle :(

      randall.j.coetzee - 2012-09-06 09:23

      Right you are Themba my brother... And the idiot asked for a 18mil yesterday to build that exact same teenager a 6mil house and the 12mil is for another palace for the king. Wish our lives were that easy.

  • dnxumalo2 - 2012-09-06 09:15

    Ok,there you have it..a good reason corporal punishment could be key to our problems.

  • justice.league.9469 - 2012-09-06 09:22

    They claim they cant remember the events from the night before, yet the one girl shows the video to her friends?? There is more to the story... Still the guy should be charged.

  • jan.roodt1 - 2012-09-06 09:24

    If she could not remember events from the previous night, how come she showed the video to her friends?

  • sapepa.sapepa - 2012-09-06 09:31

    Don't drop the soap! Sicko!

  • Chris_420 - 2012-09-06 09:39

    he should be locked away for life1 There is no place in this world for people who commit acts like this that scar their victims for life!

  • lauren.pelati - 2012-09-06 09:41

    I agree with kelvyn.davidson.1. Yougsters are easily influenced, i would not blame them for anything, but im sure they have learnt a valuable lesson here. They were preyed upon by this man and he should take full responsibility. We need to make our youngsters aware of such things and trust they are never put in the situation to be taken advantage of.

  • lebakeng.nchaupe - 2012-09-06 09:56

    as an adult you should know that when a child imitate a woman it doesnt mean she is a ready to become ONE!

  • barry.smit.773 - 2012-09-06 10:04

    Parents....! We need to take up our responsibility and authority given to us by GOD and trust Him for wisdom and guidance. God is calling us now to become chain breakers of strongholds!!! Our children needs us. IT is not too late.

      pdevillet.patrik - 2012-09-06 14:22

      exactly,parents should get off their ass$es and do something instead of relying on some bad example fairy tale god (not proven to exist to start with)to sort out their Sh$t. it's called responsibility not wishful thinking

  • refiloe.shikwambana - 2012-09-06 10:06

    If a zulu so called king can do it. So is the rest of the psychos. Aint suprice ths country is rotten.

  • mpho.pink1 - 2012-09-06 10:26

    I'm sorry but what are 12 and 14year olds doing drinking, our kids grow up so fast these days. They do things they can't take responsibility for, then when things like this happen they want us to remember that they're just children but they weren't thinking about being kids when they where drinking. I agree this man should be put in jail, what he did is totally wrong, allowing kids to visit him, take alcohol and taking advantage of them, but these kids also need to take responsibility for their actions, you don't act like that and think the man is gona take you home, tuck you in my bed and read you a bedtime story.

  • Tshilidzi Wa Ha Mukhovha - 2012-09-06 10:46

    The girls parents must be charged for Negligence,and the other girl who was shooting Video must be charge for Distributing a pornographic material,the guy must be charged for statutory rape with a minor. I hope law enforcement must do a thoroughly investigation starting from how does children end up in That man flat,did they know him,are they friends or is he a boy friend of one of the Victim?

      even the mobile store that sold that hand set that took those explicit visuals must be sued.

    Blame kim kardashian and paris hilton for promoting the idea that a sex tape would give you fame and wealth... These women are bad role models to our girls...

  • gift.mushi.9 - 2012-09-06 10:58

    @ Kala.bafazi Can someone, who watched the special assignment broadcasting the real things happening in N.Cape about home-made beer, that those coloureds without teeth (excuse, my pun / sound like racism comment)feeds themselves and their children as young as 1, support me in these as I am being labelled drunk at work by someone sorber. Dude I am talking reality here, poverty in N.Cape is worse like Musina where Parents send their Kids (Girls) to go and make money by sleeping with man who have money. Ignorance is kind, there is comfort in the truth. I will find a link for you on the you tube about N.Cape give me five minutes.

      DarleneMelville - 2012-09-06 11:11

      You not sorry saying colourds without teeth! Why do u apologise mxm!

      randall.j.coetzee - 2012-09-06 11:15

      Yo! My fellow coloureds! We are being used as an example! Finally! Lol

      DarleneMelville - 2012-09-06 11:27

      Hey man go look for your video! I dnt have have to look for a video of you people! You people scandal is everywhere! Everyday!

  • jacyjays.letsoalo - 2012-09-06 11:18

    Why act so surprised when these thing occur everyday in the township! Us parents give kids money to go enjoy during spring day, on my way home last spring day girls we wearing motjeka without anything underneath, drunk some just paraded their nudity for all boys to see! Ag man, it us parent who must restore the moral fibre of our community! And yes it is justifiable for the girls to say they don't remember the incident cos it is embarrassing! Some of these girls at 14 they look 28 cos of their shabby lifestyles and food that they eat which makes them grow fast! Every weekend this things happen and we mustnt ignore the fact that they do happen! What we need are proper family units, when last did u have a dinner meal with ur kids? Nxa! Us parents are to blame

      eleanore.hill - 2012-09-06 21:55

      You are so right. I see this daily, its heart breaking. Many parents could just not care. We have so much good out there,but also so much bad. A lot of children don't stand a chance in life due to their parents attitude and lack of parenting.

  • jigg.head - 2012-09-06 11:45

    At the risk of sounding callous, there seems to be some sort of discrepancy in the girls' story here. Neither of them remembers what happened, but the chain of events where the pedophile suggested that he wanted to cuddle and wanted it filmed was reported. Now if they did not remember this, how could it be reported? I still think the parents need to be investigated for something here. What are two teenage girls doing in a house alone, drinking with a 20 year old man? But based on this story, I do not think they were as innocent as made out. Maybe, after showing the video and realizing that they were in the cr~p for producing and showing child porn, this story was made up. Either way, hope the 20yr old gets the full might of the law!

  • barry.smit.773 - 2012-09-06 12:08

    Parents.... We need to take up our responsibilty and authority, which God gave us and look out for our children. They desperately need us to guide them through life. We are the ones whom God called to be chainbreakers of these sort of things... Blessings

    Now why are they going to get away with councilling. How can they article state that they UNWITTINGLY committed an offence. They should know that it is illegal to drink alchohol at their age to begin with. The rest could have been as a result of that but you cannot be to plastered if you are standing there making a video.
