Foreigner arrested for raping a local lesbian

 By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

THE SUNNYSIDE POLICE have arrested a 25 years old foreigner for raping a 24-year-old woman.

According to Captain Daniel Mavimbela the rape suspect on Sunday morning allegedly told his lesbian victim during an alleged unlawful sexual intercourse that he wanted to impregnate her, and that same-sex dating is an abomination in his own country of origin. The suspect originates from one of the Central African Countries.

Mavimbela said the suspect was arrested last night during a sting operation following a manhunt. He is expected to face a charge of rape in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

“Reports suggest that the 24-year-old victim had gone to a flat in Sunnyside to visit a female friend, whom she found in the company of the suspect and the friend’s boyfriend.

“It is reported that the alleged rape ordeal occurred shortly after the couple had left the flat to buy food, while the suspect, who is believed to be the victim’s ex-boyfriend, remained behind with the victim,” said Mavimbela in a statement.

The station commissioner of Sunnyside Police Station condemned the incident of rape to the woman by a foreigner from Central Africa.

“It is unacceptable that the suspect, in spite of the victim reportedly has made it clear to him that she no longer dated men; he allegedly saw it fit to enforce his own cultural beliefs on a vulnerable woman.

“People must understand that when you are in Rome, do as the Romans do. Same-sex interaction is not an atrocity in Sunnyside, rape is,” said the local number one crime fighter, Brigadier Ramakamakama Kekana.”

The alleged rape incident put a blemish on an otherwise successful weekend where the Sunnyside police executed Operation Kiwi, during which thirty-one suspects were caught for offences ranging from assault, robbery, possession of drugs, to rape. africa@citypost.co.za

SOUTH AFRICAN President Jacob Zuma has honoured the anti-apartheid struggle icon Stephen Bantu Biko who sacrifice with his life to liberate a black person.

President Jacob Zuma said Biko stood for the rights of a black person until his death and paid the supreme price for the liberation of black people from domination and oppression of the minority.

 “Steve Biko fought white supremacy and was equally disturbed by what he saw as an inferiority complex amongst black people.

“He emphasised the need for psychological liberation for black people, to accompany physical liberation to undo the damage caused by apartheid.He advocates black pride and black-resilience ” said Zuma, in a statement commemorating the 40th anniversary since Biko’s death.

President Jacob Zuma described Biko as a man who practised what he preached with regards to self-reliance and led the establishment of several community projects which were aimed at improving the lives of the people.

“His ideas of self-reliance are more relevant than ever now as we push a radical socio-economic transformation agenda and the de-racialisation of the ownership, control and management of the economy,” said Zuma.

“He suffered great abuse, harassment and torture over a period of time and paid the supreme price for the liberation of black people from oppression and bondage. “We shall always remember his sacrifice and contribution. We also thank the international community for honouring this great man and patriot in various ways. Biko died in police custody on September 12, 1977,” added President Jacob Zuma.

President Jacob Zuma is expected to lay the wreath, at the cell in Pretoria where the struggle icon died in on the 12 September 1977.

Biko was a medical student at the University of Natal, where he was a student leader and a founder of the South African Student Association (Saso) and was expelled from the medical school due to his political activism.

In his honour, the South African government through the Gauteng Department of Health renamed the Pretoria Academic Hospital as Steve Biko Academic Hospital, in September 2008.

Beatrix Street, where the hospital is also located was also renamed after Steve Biko in honour of the great revolutionary.sizwe@citypost.co.za
