THE angry parents of a girl (5) who was raped at school want answers about how the horrific incident happened right under teachers’ noses. And they also want the older boys who did it jailed.
Daily Sun reported that the Grade R pupil from the Dennilton area in Limpopo, was allegedly raped by three boys in the tall grass behind old toilets at a primary school last Wednesday
The girl’s mum (33) said: “My son told me that something happened to his sister at school, but she did not want to talk about it. I thought she might have been bullied, but later realised she was not herself and walked as if it hurt.
The mum said when she bathed her daughter later that evening, she could see her private parts were painful. The mum checked her panties and found bloodstains.
“I rushed her to the hospital and the doctors confirmed she had been penetrated.”
The mum reported the matter to the cops. The child then revealed she was raped by three boys. The girl’s dad (40) said he was shocked that this happened right under the teachers’ noses. He said the principal denied that the rape happened on the school premises, but then allegedly set the grass behind the toilets alight.
Dr Naledzani Rasila, spokesman for the Limpopo Education Department, said: “We condemn this incident and will ensure that the law takes its course.” Colonel Ronel Otto confirmed the incident and said the suspects are boys aged eight, nine and 10.
“They have been placed under the guidance of social workers as they are minors.
