Society Needs to Protect Disabled

Patricia Mokgohlwa, DA MPL

DA Gauteng Spokeswoman for People with Disabilities

I am so ashamed to be a South African today. Reading the details on how seven men brutally raped a mentally challenged teenager shakes me to the very core. However, what makes matters worse is that this rape was recorded on video and ordinary South Africans are sharing the file amongst themselves.

We should be a society that cares for those unable to take care of themselves rather than take advantage of them. Besides this being illegal, it perpetually multiplies what happened to this young girl.

It is with great sadness in my heart that I make an appeal on all South Africans who come in contact with this video to report it to the police immediately and play your part in fighting for this girl’s justice.
