Limpopo councilor arrested for allegedly raping teen
Police in Limpopo have arrested a ward councillor for allegedly raping a 14-year-old.
According to police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo, the 58-year-old ward councillor was arrested in Mokwakwaila village outside Modjadjiskloof on Saturday night.
Mojapelo narrated that the ward councillor offered the minor a lift on Thursday around midday.
“The suspect then drove into the bushes next to Rampepe village, where he allegedly raped the child.”
“He thereafter reportedly took her home, gave her money and a cellphone and told her not to tell anyone,” Mojapelo said.
When the victim’s mother questioned her about how she got the cellphone, she began crying and then told her about the incident.
The matter was then reported to the police and a case of rape was opened.
Limpopo police commissioner Lt-Gen Nneke Ledwaba condemned the incident and commended the police for the quick arrest.
Mojapelo said the suspect will appear in the Bolobedu magistrate’s court on Monday.
