ANC politician arrested for abduction and rape of a mentally-disabled minor

Few months until the decisive elections, and the ruling African National Congress is grappling with damaging scandals by its member, who was  involved in the commission of a disheartening atrocity.

An ANC ward councillor was arrested on Tuesday on charges of abduction, rape of a minor and attempted rape and is expected to appear in court later this week.

This follows allegations that he took two young girls, locked them up in a house, and only released them after a few days.

Police spokesperson, Captain Bashoabile Kale, said the suspect was currently in the holding cells.

He said police were investigating the rape of a 14-year-old mentally-disabled girl as well as the attempted rape of another young woman.

“The girls were taken to the veterans’ houses in Lerato Park on February 8 and were only released on February 10 at 5pm.”
