The rape of a mother by her biological son just reminded us that rape in South Africa is repulsive, despicable, hateful, sickening, and disgusting.

South African Police Service (SAPS) has arrested a 23-year-old man for raping his 58-year-old mother in Hillbrow, Johannesburg.

The man raped his mum at her home and fled after the horrendous act.

Members of the taxi association identified the suspect on Saturday evening. They arrested him and handed him to the SAPS.

Confirming this incident, Col Gezani thanked the community noting that the incident has illustrated that strong partnership between local community members and the SAPS is of inestimable value to the fight against crime.
