HELP: "Mom says my boyfriend raped me"

Anonymous from Soweto writes: 

I’m 16 years old and

pregnant. My mom knows

that I’m dating and also knows my

boyfriend but she has never spoken

to me about sex. Since she found

out about my pregnancy, she has

placed a protection order against my

boyfriend, saying that he raped me.

I will feel like I’ve betrayed him if he

gets arrested.

Sis Naledi answers: 

You will be called to testify

about the rape and only upon

investigation will the police

see if there is a case of rape or not.

Remember, at your age you should

rather be focusing on school and

securing your future than having

unprotected sex.
