South African Police Officer Charged With Rape Of Son To Rem

A female South African Police Charged With the Rape Of Her Son Has Been Ordered To Remain Behind Bars.

A South African female police officer charged with the rape of her 10-year-old son made an appearance in the Siyabuswa Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

The magistrate court remanded her behind bars.

The neighbourhood has been shocked by footage of the event that has gone viral on social media.

According to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid), the lady was assigned to the Groblersdal SAPS station in Limpopo and was charged with rape of a minor child, as well as making and distributing child pornographic material and sexual grooming of a child.

According to Ipid Spokesperson Lizzy Suping, the case has been adjourned to February 6 for a prospective bail application.

“Ipid will oppose the bail application.”

The provincial commissioner of police in Limpopo, Lieutenant-General Thembi Hadebe, has expressed shock and strongly condemned the incident.

“The actions of this woman are deplorable and deserve harsh condemnation.

“Even though the suspect allegedly committed this crime when she was still a Public Service Act employee of the SAPS, she should have known better that such unbecoming behaviour deserved harsh consequences.

“The SAPS does not have the space for such people who tarnish its image,“ he said.

According to police, the son has been sent to a secure location where he will get psychiatric care and help.
