My cousin was raped by her step-father when she was 13. She committed suicide after her mom told the whole family she was lying & trying to “destroy her marriage”. My aunt is still married to that man
After reading the replies to this, I just wanna add, my aunt is a terrible human being but the man who raped a 13 y/o is a million (billion?) times worse. Thanks
This is coming few months after it was reported that a 10-year-old South African girl, who was allegedly raped by her stepfather for over five years, was taken to a place of safety as confirmed by KwaZulu-Natal Department of Social Development.
Spokesperson Vukani Mbhele told News24 that the girl would receive “psychosocial support”. Ngidi said this meant she would be given mental, emotional, social and spiritual support to help her reintegrate into society.
KwaZulu-Natal police disclosed that the man was set to appear in the Verulam Magistrate’s Court, after the arrest. He was detained at the Verulam police station and is facing a rape charge. Ngidi said the department was also planning to take the girl back to school once she was “rehabilitated”.
“Obviously once we have established that she is responding positively to her therapy, and that she has been fully rehabilitated, we will make sure that she is enrolled at school. According to the South African Constitution, every child has a right to go to school,” he said.
The girl was allegedly raped by her stepdad since her mother’s death five years ago. According to private security company Reaction Unit South Africa, the stepdad had allegedly sealed all the windows in their home and held her captive in the house while he was at work. He also allegedly did not enrol her in school, so that she would not tell anyone about the rapes and abuse, RUSA’s Vinod Singh said.
