Court hears of dad’s sexual abuse
A YOUNG woman testified behind closed doors against her father in the high court sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court yesterday. The Kempton Park man, 45, is accused of raping her and his other daughter as well as impregnating his niece. The alleged abuse happened between 2007 and 2013, when the girls were aged between 12 and 17. “To silence the older daughter he bought her a car. The younger daughter became rebellious and fell pregnant and he took her for a backdoor abortion and buried the foetus. The girl was under the age of 16 at the time,” a representative from Women and Men Against Children Abuse said. The trial continues.
