This comes after a 20-year-old Nicholas Ninow was accused of raping a seven-year-old girl in the bathroom of the Dros restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria, two weeks ago.
The accused could face additional charges of attempted murder because the child almost died.
“This is not just rape. A child almost died at Dros restaurant. That is why we say this should be escalated to a charge of attempted murder,” – Themba Masango, secretary-general of #NotInMyName said.
Ninow appeared at the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court this week facing charges of rape, drug possession and assault grievous bodily harm.
Taking to Twitter, AKA said “as a father, this whole dros rapist/Nicholas Ninow saga is heartbreaking and scary … I fear for my own daughter’s safety and what kind of world she has to grown up in. It’s so messed up man. So so messed up (sic).”
