6 Jan 2018, Mitchells Plain, Cape Town:Suspected Rapist stoned in Freedom Park, Tafelsig Friday evening... For the Record, he's not dead, but it was close!
It is with great sadness that I once again have to report that another young child was raped. She was allegedly raped by a neighbour who could have been her grandfather.
I feel sick to my stomach. Just when I was actually lamenting on how the raping of our children seems to have stopped, this!!! Once again a neighbour, once again known to the victim, once again a trusted father figure.
The community once again standing up for the innocent victim by attacking the perpetrator. It is with mixed emotions that I once again got in the middle to plea for Justice for the victim, pleading with the community to let the police take him away, allow the courts to do their jobs but its hard, terribly hard.
For those who ask why I'm protecting a rapist, let me set the record straight once and for all, I'm not protecting no rapist, I am protecting a justice system that had been put in place to provide Justice to all because we subscribe to a Democratic system and because I think that killing a rapist is providing them with the easy way out.
I plea with you community, let us give justice a chance, we saw that it can work for us when we look at the triple life sentences of Rangy Tango.
Let us give the victim the satisfaction that her perpetrator will be punished in full by a judiciary put in place to ensure that rapists when found guilty do get their due.
