SACP Gauteng calls for strong sanction against Dros rapist

2 October 2018

The South African Communist Party (SACP) in Gauteng has noted with deep shock the allegation against a 20-year-old man who raped a six-year-old girl in the bathrooms at a Dros restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria last week.

While we continue to place trust and confidence in our criminal justice system, we call for the accused in such a heinous crime not be granted bail and in turn to face to full might of the law.

In this regard, our structures and supporters will join the demonstrations outside the court in solidarity with the family of the six-year old victim.

This senseless and despicable act occurred in the backdrop of the SACP`s ongoing fight against the abuse of women and children launched in 2017. In the context of this campaign, the SACP has consistently called for the end to violence against women, children, and the?lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans- and/or intersex (LGBTI) community.

Indeed, such a brazen attack on an innocent and defenceless child in what is perceived to be safe space, has affirmed the notion that ours is a province that has been correctly dubbed South Africa`s capital of contact crimes which include murder and attempted murder, common assault and assault with grievous bodily harm, common robbery and sexual violations.

As our General Secretary Comrade Blade Nzimande has cautioned somewhere that if left unchecked, violence will plunge our nation into deeper crisis. As the SACP in Gauteng we will not fold our arms when our children are under attack.

The SACP in Gauteng will continue to wage the struggle against patriarchal oppression and high-levels of persisting violence in general and against women and children in particular, informed by our 14th congress resolutions.

Such attacks, largely affecting the working class and poor, with many often going unreported, are a manifestation of the systematic and interconnected features and vestiges of the apartheid political economy which we must all strive to overcome if we are to end the abuse of women and children in society.
