Car­ing for a child mark of a good man

Daily News - - METRO -

WHILE the life sen­tences handed to se­rial rapist Mtho­bisi Mnyandu are wel­come, the ev­i­dence pre­sented dur­ing the trial pro­vides food for thought.

Mnyandu said in his de­fence he was not taught to re­spect women. With no father, his only male role model was an abu­sive un­cle who as­saulted his girl­friend. Mnyandu pro­ceeded to ruin six women’s lives.

Father­ing a child does not prove a man’s man­hood. Car­ing, pro­vid­ing for, rais­ing a child and im­part­ing good prin­ci­ples are the marks of a good man. A WIL­LIAMS Dur­ban
