The Democratic Alliance has called for the immediate arrest of the 20 year-old uncle suspected of raping his 2-hear-old niece in Mankweng, Limpopo.
The DA said they are concerned that many horrific cases of sexual violence are yet to lead to the arrests by the Limpopo police.
They said that those who rape in Limpopo are being sent the wrong message that you can get away woth sexual violence in the province.
DA Limpopo Legislature Caucus leader Desiree van der Walt said rape is serious as an issue holistically.
“When children are left with children that they trust and are allegedly raped, is very serious.” Van der Walt said.
Van der Walt said the issue is growing in Limpopo and the police have not taken swift action.
“We will be following this and we will also be using other levels of government and an institution to make sure that this person goes to court as soon as possible” van der Walt added.
