Police confirm an arrest of a 65 years old man at Makwakwaila village in Limpopo who has been raping his 14 years old niece since she was 12 years in 2018.

Limpopo Police Commissioner Lt Gen Nneke Ledwaba said this is all thanks to the community and neighbours who flagged the matter to the police for them act on the matter.

“The young girl was reportedly raped by her grandfather several times since 2018 when she was only 12 years old. The rapes allegedly took place when her grandmother was not home and the suspect would thereafter bribe the victim with money.”

It is also said that the suspect apparently attempted to have his friends have sex with the child in exchange for money, by bringing in two other older men so they could also sexually abuse her.

But fortunate enough the young girl managed to escape the trap to her neighbours who then informed the officials.

The suspect was later on arrested and is due to appear at Bolobedu Magistrates Court on August 3.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the abuse of children and the seemingly immoral tendencies of older men taking advantage of the most vulnerable members of the society. The swift reaction by police members who received the report is commendable,” concluded General Ledwaba.
