KZNA – 16 year old girl was forced into a relationship with an adult male due to her misbehaving and acting out against her family.
The girl, her father, stepmother and the 25 year old male who she is in a relationship with arrived at Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) offices in Verulam at 13:36 after the teenager was assaulted by her dad. She informed Reaction Officers that her dad forced her into a relationship with her stepmother’s brother in December 2020.
The two lived on the same property near the Verulam Quarry and moved to Buffelsdraai two months later. Her father informed Reaction Officers that he and the girl’s biological mother were divorced and she wanted nothing to do with her daughter. Her father accused her of being a prostitute however she denied the allegation.
The teenager was allegedly in several relationships with older men. When she returned to her father’s house he forced her into a relationship with his brother in law and allowed them to stay in an outbuilding on his property.
The 25 year old male informed Reaction Officers that he was aware that the girl was a minor but assumed the relationship was lawful due to him receiving her father’s blessings. She was 15 when they moved in together. The matter was reported to the Verulam SAPS for further investigation.
