The Port Elizabeth Regional Court on Monday sentenced a 29-year-old woman from Gqeberha, Thembakazi Dyamani to 12 years -imprisonment for raping a 13-year-old boy in June last year. Dyamani pleaded guilty to rape on 25 March 2021 and said she did not dispute the allegations, as she was too drunk that day to remember what happened.
National Prosecuting Authority(NPA) Regional spokesperson in Eastern Cape, Anelisa Ngcakani said on 04 June 2020, the boy and his friend had accompanied Dyamani to a relative of hers that also stayed in Gqeberha. Ngcakani added that Dyamani is not related to the boys however, the three know each other.
“The boys spent the night at Dyamani’s relative’s house. Dyamani, who slept in between the boys, started to play with the 13-year-old’s private parts while they were sleeping. The boy tried to remove her hand but she instead inserted his penis into her and had sex with him.”
Ngcakani further said the following day, the boy told his friend what had happened and the friend advised him to report the matter to his parents.
The state prosecutors, Mxolisi Bebula and Denise Prince successfully prosecuted the matter.
