Pretoria - The State started its closing arguments by appealing to the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria to conclude that Nicholas Ninow had every intention of raping the young girl in the Dros restaurant toilet.
State prosecutor Dorah Ngobeni cited this was due to Ninow failing to bring the court into its faith in his statement and rather opting to supply a false version of what actually took place on 22 September 2018.
Ngobeni questioned Ninow's explanation that the child entered the bathroom as he was using the CAT drug, yet somehow was undressed in the manner that he was.
Furthermore, she said if it truly was about him using drugs, he would have in all likelihood moved out of the child’s way.
“The court should find that he followed the little girl into the bathroom, undressed himself, threatened her and proceeded to rape her.”
