Johannesburg - Five men were arrested for allegedly gang-raping a 13-year-old girl on two different occasions in Mahikeng, North West police said on Wednesday.

Spokesperson Kelebogile Moiloa said the men, aged between 19 and 23, were arrested on Tuesday.

They apparently raped the girl in July this year and again on 13 September.

Moiloa said no further details on the alleged rape were available.

A school teacher approached the girl when she saw that her behaviour had changed and the girl then told the teacher about the rapes.

The men were expected to appear in the Mahikeng Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

    Rape seems to be out of control in this country - can't we just sterilize every rapist? And we really need more well-trained teachers like that in this country.

    The national sport in SA! The government should concentrate on trying to figure out why our people are so violent and uncivilised.

    i guess its safe to say all whites are racist then?

      10/10 for that answer, get civilized first, then maybe we will consider ruling out racism .

      It's safe to say it, freedom of speech and all, but it's not necessarily true.

    Rape in SA is a epidemic. A woman/girl has a better chance of being raped than getting an education. And unfortunately, it does happen more often than not in the black communities because of the gangs who do this as initiation. It's called "jackrolling". It started in the 70's and has recently been "revived". There are numerous studies done on this type of culture in SA. There are some very good, kind and loving men out there but the rest are a bunch of barbarians with no respect for a woman.

    People like this are just sick - they will find comfort in the thought that they come from 'victor' to victim. We all know what place in prison there is for rapists, especially children. Shame I hope this girl will not be emotionally scarred for the rest of her life.

    Law of execution should be revised for these rapists

    It's the Nature of the Beast (in the DNA), Murderers, Rapists and Thieves. Their brains are designed to act on two impulses only, 1) Consumption 2) Destruction. The scourge of our planet, they are neither Human or Animal, they are "The Unreconstructable Neanderthals!"
