A Cape Town attorney has been arrested over rape allegations involving three minors.

"Three victims reported the case and one victim is 14 years. The suspect appeared in Muizenberg Magistrate's Court on Monday on charges of unlawfully and intentionally engaging services of a child younger than 18 years for financial/other rewards, to perform sexual act with that child ... whether it is committed or not."
