The police in Limpopo arrested a 50-year-old suspect on Friday for allegedly raping a 17-year-old learner from the local school at Sibasa, in the Thohoyandou area where he is reportedly employed as an educator.It is alleged that the suspect raped the victim who was in grade 12 on several occasions during 2018.

Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo of the Limpopo police said in one of the incidents, the suspect reportedly offered to assist her with extra lessons but instead took her to a lodge where he allegedly raped her.

“He thereafter threatened the child and then offered her money to keep her silent.The victim eventually opened a case of rape last month, in April at the Thohoyandou police station.”

Mojapelo added that members of the Family Violence Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS) immediately took over the case and after a lengthy investigation, the suspect was arrested.

Limpopo Police Commissioner, General Thembi Monica Hadebe has strongly condemned these acts of criminality perpetrated against children, especially by people who are expected to play a secondary parental role in the upbringing of a child.

The suspect will appear in Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Monday 17 May 2021, facing three counts of rape.
