13-year-old girl gang-raped by 10 men in Nyanga
CAPE TOWN – Women and Men Against Child Abuse says it’s shocked by the gang rape of a 13-year-old girl in Nyanga.
The teenager was abducted and raped last weekend.
Seven suspects have been arrested and will appear in court today.
An eighth suspect is still at large.
The organisation’s Ngaa Murombedzi says communities must help in keeping children safe.
“To make sure that they don’t wander in places that are dangerous, they don’t wander into deserted places. But also for schools and for community outreach programmes to teach these children safety measures so that they don’t find themselves falling victim constantly to predators.”
Murombedzi said the teenager is likely to experience an array of emotions.
“Anger, resentment and maybe she’ll blame herself. We’re trying to move the children from focusing on blaming themselves and focusing on the incident.”
