Infant Rape: DA condemns horrendous incident

DA Northern Cape: Provincial Chairperson Spokesperson on Transport, Safety & Liaison

The DA condemns the rape of a six week old baby in Galeshewe. This is an utterly disgusting and disturbing incident.

We send our condolences to the family and community.

The community must be commended for their united action. They apprehend the suspect, and handed him over to the South African Police Services (SAPS).

The law will now run its course. If the suspect is found guilty, we urge the courts to impose the harshest sentence possible.

SAPS must investigate the case thoroughly to bring the true perpetrator to justice.

We have to stand up together against the scourge of rape and violence. The time has come for us to start respecting each other’s rights.

In solidarity with all victims of gender violence, LGBTI discrimination, and child-abuse, the DA in the Northern Cape will be hosting a march on the 7th of December in Kimberley in support of the 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children campaign.
