Guilty: Petso Ntwaagae

Grandpa blames alcohol as he pleads guilty to raping 12 year old niece

A 62-year-old man who pleaded guilty to raping his 12-year-old niece in February has blamed alcohol for his foul deed.

Speaking in mitigation on Monday before Mochudi Magistrate Mareledi Dipate sentenced him to minimum ten years imprisonment prescribed for the offence, Petso Ntwaagae of Atersia said: “This happened because of alcohol. I was drunk and that is why I forced myself on the child. That’s all I can say. I ask the court to be lenient on me”.

Court heard how Ntwaagae found his niece playing with her mates outside the yard at which he lived with the child and instructed her to follow him into the yard. Upon entering the yard the old man asked the little girl to go with him into a hut where he ordered her to strip and had unprotected sex with her.  As he satisfied his lust Ntwaagae allegedly instructed the kid not to raise or tell anybody of the act or he would murder her.

Although he admitted to telling the child not to scream for help during the evil act or tell anybody about it de denied threatening her with death.

“I asked her not to tell but I never spoke to her about death”, said the old man who seemed remorseful and resigned to his fate.

Ntwaagae’s forced lustful act against a minor only came to light about three weeks after the incident at school during a lesson on sexual abuse when a teachers asked any child who had been subjected to sexual abuse to raise their hand. The brave little girl raised her and told of her ordeal.

The teacher reported the matter to the social worker who in turn informed the cops. Upon arrest Ntwaagae allegedly confessed his crime and recorded a confession statement before a judicial officer. The statement was produced before court and the old man agreed that it be used as evidence saying the right thumb print on it was his.

In his Judgement Magistrate Dipate said there were no extenuating circumstances and he had betrayed the trust the molested little girl had in him..

“You have committed a despicable crime and anybody who does what you have done deserves to be punished. Your case is worse because the child trusted you as a parent. That you were drunk is not an excuse. The wisdom of you age should have made you realise that what you were doing was wrong. You deserve no sympathy from this court” said Dipate before telling Ntwaagae of his right to appeal with two weeks.

  10. Why only rape, NO defilement? O dirile melato e mebedi at the same time and 50 (12-62)years between is too much. Motho fa a nole no a sa itlhaloganyeng o a robala ga a batle morobalo.

  11. If evry time a man gets drunk a 12 year old girl gets defiled, then were should heed the president’s appeal to do away with alcohol. In other words, the accused admits that he was not in control of his faculties when he commited the crime. Alcohol was. So if alcohol be deleted, then we could put some control on the increasing defilement scenarios. Alcohol is a bad influence on the healthy mind and is so corruptive that someone under its influence is basically a Zombi..
