Grandfather (63) hangs himself

A 63-year-old man’s body was found hanging from a tree on the Skoolplaas farm in the Ventersburg district on Sunday, 26 May.

It was apparently revealed that he had allegedly sexually abused and impregnated his granddaughter.

A case of rape was reported to the police in Ventersburg. His 14-year-old granddaughter apparently shared a residence with him.

He is said to have repeatedly raped the minor from January to June 2018.

“These secret deeds were revealed during a family meeting after the grandfather had verbally attacked the victim.

“It was also revealed that the victim was impregnated and taken to the doctor for an abortion last year,” says Capt. Malebo Khosana, police spokesperson for the Thabong Cluster.

An inquest docket was registered for further investigation.

“The commander’s office of the Thabong Cluster would like to raise awareness with community members that domestic violence related offences, such as rape, are serious matters that should be reported to the police urgently.

“Even though these crimes happen indoors, we are mandated to see to it that perpetrators are brought to book for justice to take its course. The fact that family members are involved, does not make it a less serious crime,” says Maj. Gen. Apaphia Modise.
