A 58-year-old Ward Councillor, Ngwako Lawrance Seshoka on Tuesday, 23 November 2020, appeared in the Bolobedu Magistrate’s Court for allegedly raping a 14-year-old child in the Mokwakwaila policing area outside Tzaneen.
He was denied bail and his case was postponed until 29 January 2021 for further Police investigations.
The victim was allegedly offered a lift by the suspect on Thursday, 01 October 2020 at about 12:00. The suspect then drove into the bushes next to Rampepe village where he allegedly raped the child. He thereafter reportedly took her home, gave her money and a cellphone and told her not to tell anyone.
“The Police investigations are still continuing”, said Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.
