An anti-rape device invented by a retired anaesthetist in the Free State has appalled men and women - for different reasons.
Jaap Haumann, 72, who farms near the small town of Clocolan, has designed a "killer tampon" which can lop off the end of a would-be rapist's penis.
Dr Haumann said he designed the device after speaking to several rape victims.
"It was clear to me that rape has a devastating impact on the lives of women, physically and especially mentally."
He said in one instance, a rape victim had refused to leave her house, even nine months after she was raped. Her friends did her shopping for her.
