Pirates striker accused of raping schoolgirl

A mother from Johannesburg South has laid a charge of statutory rape against an Orlando Pirates striker whom she says raped her 15-year-old daughter.

The unnamed Pirates striker is said to have raped the girl while her mother and the player’s girlfriend were in the house.

The incident occurred after a family lunch, where the striker was serving drinks.

“They (police) took my child for medical tests but I was not happy with certain questions they asked her. I think I failed my daughter, I should have been there to protect her,” the mother was quoted as saying by the Sunday World.

“Now this. He had no right to rape my daughter and I want him to rot in jail for this.”

Gauteng police spokesman Lungelo Dlamini confirmed that the police were investigating a case of statutory rape.

“The incident happened on the 30th March 2018 and was reported in May 2018. Investigation on the matter is still continuing and once finalised, it will be discussed with the prosecutor for a decision,” said Dlamini.

NPA South Gauteng Phindi Mjonondwane said: “The docket is still with the police for investigation and we will attend to it once it has been brought.”
