South Africa: Call for National Register for Sex Offenders to be made public

[iol.co.za/pretoria-news/ – 7/8/20]

Pretoria – As Gauteng police investigate the circumstances surrounding the alleged rape of a two-year-old child under isolation for Covid-19 at a local hospital, experts call for the National Register for Sex Offenders to be made public knowledge.

Daleen Gouws, the spokesperson for Action Society, said it was unacceptable for a child to be placed under the protection of the state and still be vulnerable to criminals lurking in the shadows.

Gouws said it was time the president and other stakeholders took radical action to finally put an end to the scourge of violence being perpetrated against women and children.

One way to do this, Gouws said was by making the National Register for Sex Offenders public information.

She said by making the National Register for Sex Offenders public, South African civilians would finally be able to outwit those criminals who are protected by the law.

“Like this girl’s mother, we assume that our loved ones are surrounded by people that are “safe”, but are they? We ought to know if we can truly trust the people we are forced to leave our children with.

    The crime problem in South Africa is because they have been going through for about ten years what we are seeing now in America; A failed, corrupted, conflicted reverse racist party system. There are three warring political groups, all vying for power, the police are virtually non-existant and citizens that want protection have to hire private security or be heavily armed. Just what is starting to happen here. South Africa is now the rape capital of the world due to racial division and lack of policing. And just like here, the politicians are making excuses like they need tougher restrictions on the registry, or they need to make it public. That would not have stopped this from occurring.

    Notice it doesn’t not say if the person who violated her was even on the registry, and we all know darn well that would have been in the headlines if that were the case. It sounds as though it was a hospital staffer, and we all know that in hiring people the hospital can get a back ground check. Very unlikely the family would have checked the registry for all the employees in the hospital. So this is the guilty directors of the hospital and the corrupted politicians trying to divert their blame. Mandela’s Rainbow Nation dissolved long ago and the apartheid practices have now been adopted by the other side. The problem is corruption, political greed, and lack of equitable law enforcement, the public registry had absolutely nothing to do with it. And this is the future of America if we continue on as we are.

      I’m trying to make sense of your comment because the article shows the US to be the exact opposite of South Africa where their officials don’t jump on every allegation of sexual assault, whereas in the US, they’ll investigate and indict someone on something that may have happened over 20 years ago. From my understanding, the South African registry just covers the most serious sex offenses, unlike the US, Australia & Britain’s registry covering minor offenses ranging from sexting to cp possession. As far as your belief that white South Africans are experiencing some kind of “reverse racism”? Well what can I say. That’s total ignorance on your part. Whites have lost their political power, but by far, South African whites still hold most of the wealth and property, plus they are the country’s richest citizens, which wouldn’t be the case if they lived under “reverse apartheid” conditions.

    From the article:

    “According to reports the aunt of the 2-year-old was referred to the Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital in Pretoria on June 15, after the child exhibited signs that she was struggling to breathe.

    Upon arrival staff at the hospital they allegedly told the mother to go home as the child may have the coronavirus and would need to be isolated.

    However upon being discharged from the hospital the following day the mother realised that her child was not her normal self and discovered she had been sexually assaulted.”

    How exactly does it go from trouble breathing to possible Coronavirus to sexual assault? Seems a bit of a leap to me that a 2-year-old could come to that conclusion without some serious prompting.

      Um sounds to me that this story will be used to become like the greatest leader of useless laws, the United States. According to the article the 2 year old was released the following day after possibly having COVID!! Sounds like someone needs their 15 minutes of fame to pass an agenda. Bravo we have way more people that need to be placed in the Cuckoo’s nest, instead of flying over it.
