The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - A large crowd of protesters gathered outside Ceres Magistrate’s Court on Friday, when a 25-year-old man accused of child rape appeared briefly - and was told he was to remain behind bars for another week.
The man was remanded in custody until next Friday, for further investigation by police.
The man was arrested by a team of detectives after an initial suspect was released after questioning.
Two children, a seven-year-old boy and a four-month-old girl, were raped early on Saturday morning a fortnight ago. The pair were dragged about 100m away from their home, raped and left in the veld.
The infant has since had reconstructive surgery at Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
