What we know about the Gqeberha school rape so far…
The man accused of this atrocious crime is the school’s general worker.
Police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu has since confirmed that a case has been registered with SAPS in Gqeberha, but parents and caregivers remain apprehensive – given that the accused was still ‘on duty’ after the report was filed. It’s no wonder locals are up in arms…
