    Barbaric savages!

      @Iren. Agreed. Nothing else but. Incident overshadowed by "The Buffoon's Speech". Which is unfortunate. Wishes are horses etc, but 2 things we can wish for: 1) The Buffoon develops a stutter 2) Every time anyone is raped that Buffoon and his mates gets posted a 1000 Purple and Pink ribbons. Gandhi might have had some ideas. Would women (while we all know the shame, pain and humiliation attached), be prepared to wear such a ribbon? When Zoooomer the Showermat sees 10 000's wearing them, would he be shamed perhaps into doing something??? Like talking to his ministers making and applying the law. Or should women who are lucky so far and have NOT been raped, wear ribbons? There would be less ribbons to make?.............

      Every criminal needs to have the type of crime they committed tatooed on their foreheads. Marked for life like the beasts they are.

    Whether we agree with it or not, the death penalty *is* necessary in SA.

      In the interest of justice and, should he be found guilty, punishment being seen to be carried out, would the authorities just give him to the people. Our 'western' form of justice, commonly practised in most civilised societies will not work here. Extreme levels of crime need extreme counter-measures to stop the rot destroying civilised society any further.

      What animal does this? It is a lower form of life than an animal! Something like shark faeces! Fertiliser!

    What type of human being does this to a 70 yr old woman?No wonder Africa is viewed so poorly by the rest if the World.Violence and savagery rule!

      John - 2012-09-12 19:21

      It is NOT human, it is a reptile and needs to be treated as such!

    God Warns 'darkness will be the recompense of corruptness,injustice and oppression on the land it is committed'

      his ancestors told him to do it to cure himself from AIDS, the ancestors always tell these bush dwellers to rape dogs, babies, grandmothers,little boys,goats, chickens and about anything that moves, cause its the african way.

    I hope karma pays that guy a visit in jail if he gets caught.

  • lionel.defrontignac - 2012-09-12 18:43

    I'm wondering if this tendency to rape elderly women is not the result of some myth that is doing the rounds, like the one that having intercourse with a virgin would cure one of HIV? That particular "muthi myth" is still having devastating effects upon young girls in KZN. You must remember all of these incidents occurred in rural areas, where muthi murders and witch killings are still practised...

  • douglas.reid.921 - 2012-09-12 19:01

    The sad thing is we will say she is lucky she didn't get killed

  • John - 2012-09-12 19:17

    Make him into a eunuch and enslave him in a women`s home! Low life rubbish!

  • raymon.mcnelly - 2012-09-12 19:27

    Black men! Most of them are murderous raping coward scum.

  • Yandisa Rwaai - 2012-09-12 19:42

    Now Raymon if most black men rape, if i do the maths then most white women would be raped... Now thats far from the truth but i understand you're just acting your race - generalizing like you always do.

      raymon.mcnelly - 2012-09-12 23:26

      I did not say most black men rape white women (which, by the way is most probable). I said most back men are rapists. Look at the stats, S.A. Rank amongs the top countries in the world for murder and rape. That is a proven statistic. But, don't believe me... Just look at N24 front page... There's 2 articles of grannies being raped.. An guess what.. By black's... No surprise there... Call me a racist, or tell me I generalize.. Whatever... Facts speak for themselves...
