A 55-year-old father is expected to appear in the Pinetown Magistrates Court today on charges of incest, rape and child abuse on March 15 next week. This after he was arrested last week for allegedly raping his biological nine-year-old daughter at their Havenside home in Chatsworth, south of Durban.
The case against the Chatsworth father was presented at the Chatsworth Magistrates Court with charges of incest, rape & abuse for this minor.
According to reports, the wife does not believe that her husband raped their 9 year old daughter.
The accused, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the children, was arrested after his nine-year-old daughter alerted a teacher, who had noticed a change in her school work. He also stands accused of raping his older daughters for the past 15 years. However his wife and his older daughters stood by him in the Chatsworth Magistrate Court, saying he is a breadwinner and must be released on bail.
However proceedings did not go smoothly, the wife of the accused had become hysterical demanding that her husband be released on bail after the court decided to deny bail. According to reports, the wife does not believe that he raped their 9 year old daughter.
