DURBAN: Police have confirmed that a 25-year-old man has appeared in court, in connection with the alleged rape of his grandmother.

According to KZN police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele, on April 23, the 89-year-old victim had been seated under a tree, near the outside toilet, when the rape took place.

“It is alleged that the victim had been sitting under a tree at her home, near the toilet, so that it could be easy for her to get to toilet.
