Adopt zero tolerance to rape
THE grotesque rape of a 6-year-old in Pretoria has prompted serious soul searching as this escalating menace is pervasive in South Africa.
Violent rape in our beleaguered country cannot continue without drastic consequences for the perpetrators. Rape occurs every 26 seconds in our land, shrouding us in shame, as we have one of the highest rape rates in the world.
The latest incident has left the country in horror-struck convulsion. This ghastly deed has shocked the collective conscience of society. Strong emotions of retribution are gathering momentum, because the offence was committed in an extremely brutal, grotesque, diabolical, revolting and dastardly manner,
The gravity of this heinous crime depicts hair-raising, beastly and unparalleled behaviour.
This animal must be removed from society.
He depicts extreme mental perversion not worthy of human condonation. Our courts and the criminal justice system needs to instil faith in society by adopting a zero-tolerance policy. Inaction will have a grave impact on our social order.
