Tzaneen police have arrested the uncle who allegedly raped a three year old child in Mulati village.
The 28 year old mother alleges that on Wednesday 2020-12-03 at about 15:30 her three year old daughter went to play with other kids at her neighbour’s homestead while she was busy cooking.
When she was done cooking the child returned home informing her that her cousin smeared soap in her vagina and took off his trouser. The mother tried to make sense of what her daughter was telling her but she couldn’t.
The mother said she confronted the 28 year old cousin to find out what he did to the three year old girl. He denied any knowledge of child abuse or wrongdoing.
The mother took the child straight to the clinic for further medical examination of the child. It was confirmed by the medical practitioners that there’s redness and a small tear from the child’s private parts.
A case of sexual assault was opened and the 28 year old suspect was arrested. Police investigation still continue.
