Western Cape cop held for rape

2012-11-14 07:25

Johannesburg - A Western Cape police captain has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman to whom he was giving a lift home, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Moses Dlamini said the policeman saw the 30-year-old woman walking home at 05:00 on Sunday after visiting a friend and offered her a lift. They lived in the same street, he said.

They first went to his house to make a phone call, but once there, the policeman allegedly fondled her, then raped her. She later went to the police.

Dlamini said the policeman was arrested in Robertson on Monday and appeared in court on Tuesday, when he was released on bail of R1 000. The case was postponed until December 13.

    Busisiwe when are we ever gonna be smart? It was an individual that raped the woman not a political party. Who said whoever stays in western cape is supporting DA? Small minded, stupid and dumb I see!

      Well said Mzondi. It helps to have brains.

    Get rid of this perverted filth. We have a super awesome candidate for police work locally but he gets rejected for having white skin. racism is horrible, and so is sex obsession.

    Investigate, if guilty then procecute and sentence to the full might that the law allows. Simple

    I guess we need another new police force to monitor the police force.

      sachasea - 2012-11-14 11:26

      Name and shame campaign. The corrupt policemen get away with murder quite literally, because no one holds them accountable. The rotten ones probably all protect one another.

      have you ever heard of IPID?

  • sue.r.byronmoore - 2012-11-14 08:00

    Talk about trust violated - to the police who are as horrified as right-thinking people, and who do an amazing job - please don't give up. We really really need your honesty and integrity. To idiots like this cop who so abused this woman's trust - I wonder how your mother must feel, as I am sure she did not teach you to rape.

    Let me ask this! Is the Police Man white? and if so what does it have to do with the fact that there was a victim of a sex offender? the other thing is we do not even know whether the Cop indeed rape this lady! so it is stil a trial awaiting matter! thats what all South Africans do we tend to judge the unknown! that is our greatest Problem!

  • phassy - 2012-11-14 08:18

    So much for protecting and serving, crime and rape is becoming the order of the day in this country. We both have to join hands and fight back. The bail is also set so low it's like a joke. The next thing the man will be using his powers to intimidate the poor woman. ag!!

  • leandra.brikwa - 2012-11-14 08:21

    Ok, why did she climb out of the car, when he went into the house to make a call.

      Clive Bouwer - 2012-11-14 08:28

      I'm with you on that one! that's y i said too much needs to be told!

    The nobody thing needs a Burdizzo emasculator

  • sachasea - 2012-11-14 11:23

    The public should start a name and shame campaign of corrupt coppers. These have been successful overseas. Even the Western Cape has a name and shame campaign for drunk drivers, a joint initiative between LeadSA and the province’s Safely Home awareness drive. If these people don't get identified and people made aware of them then how are we to know that A) the law runs it's course and B) that they get fired and not just 'internally disciplined' and moved to another post elsewhere?

  • lawson.lutchman - 2012-11-14 13:24

    I thought it was common knowledge and policy that civilians aren't allowed in offical vehicles.

  • piercemepretty - 2012-11-14 14:20

    a friend of mine was also tricked into driving with cops once when she had a bit too much to drink. when she regained consciousness, she was in elsies river in one of their homes. luckily she got away. these things happen every day.
