South Africa: Raped on the first day of school

Stephanie Saville:

The return to school has had tragic consequences for two young girls in the Pietermaritzburg area who were raped in separate incidents.

In the first incident, a 10-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a fellow 13-year-old pupil on two consecutive days in the playground at a school in the Taylor's Halt area.

Police Inspector Les Botha said that the rapes had taken place on January 17 and 18, the first two days of the school year.

"The victim was playing with her friends in the playground when the suspect came to her and made her lie on the ground and then raped her."

The boy repeated the rape the following day. Botha said that the boy had been arrested and was due to appear in court. He would not release the name of the school.

In another incident, a 6-year-old girl was raped while walking home from school in the Nagle Dam area on Monday. A man had approached the girl and asked her to accompany him into nearby bushes. When she refused, he grabbed her and took her into the bushes where he raped her. No arrests have been made.

In another incident of child rape, a 5-year-old girl was raped at her home in Mpumalanga township on Sunday by a man who police said was well-known to her. The man fled the scene and has not been arrested.

What the hell is it with Africans (African Americans included) and rape? They rape babies, little kids, just about anyone. If anyone has a good explanation or reason, i'd like to hear it. Just look at the recent rape/murder in Knoxvillehe Wichita Massacre (what, you've never heard of the Wichita Massacre?).
