A 17-year-old suspect has been arrested for allegedly raping his 54-year-old aunt on countless occasions in Molapomogale in Kameelpoort near Vaalbank in Mpumalanga.

The story was related to the police by the aunt who lost her patience as she could no longer handle the abuse any more, reportedly.


According to Mpumalanga police the 54-year-old aunt alleged that the suspect started his evil deeds between April 2022 and early September 2022.
