Father jailed for raping daughter

A 32-year-old Braemar father appeared in the Scottburgh Regional Court recently where he was convicted of the rape of his 7-year-old daughter and sentenced to 12 years imprisonment.

Early last year, the victim’s 16-year-old cousin saw the father sexually molesting her and reported the incident to the child’s grandmother.

The matter was reported to the traditional leader and only at a later stage, when the victim’s mother learnt about the abuse, was the matter reported to the police.

The child’s parents are separated and she was abused while visiting her father and paternal grandmother during the school holidays when. The father was duly arrested and charged with rape.

The case was assigned to Detective Constable Nonhle Myende of the Sawoti SAPS Detective Service for investigation.

Major General Sethenya Nxamagele, the Ugu Cluster Commander commended Constable Myende for the thorough investigation of the case and for securing a successful conviction, despite the fact that the incident was reported to the police months after the incident had occurred.

“I pray that, with counselling, the little girl recover completely from this horrendous abuse by the very person that she looked up to for love, security and protection. Society is safer without the likes of this predatory father,”said the General.
