BuzzSouthAfrica has confirmed from the South African Police Service (SAPS) that a 52-years-old doctor in Limpopo raped a teenage patient during medical examination.
SAPS said the medical doctor has been arrested for the crime. He will appear before the Nkoankoa Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 12th October 2017 to face a charge of rape.
“The Police in Ritavi outside Tzaneen have arrested a 52-years-old doctor for raping a 17-year-old girl who was his patient.
“It is alleged that on the 2017-10-09 at about 16:00, the 17-year-old girl went to the suspect’s surgery in Nkoankoa Township for consultation. On arrival, she was called into the consultation room and the suspect started examining her. During that process, the suspect raped her.
“The matter was later reported to the Police who reacted swiftly and started with their preliminary investigations until the suspect was later arrested,” related the police service.
Meanwhile, SAPS said its members at the Limpopo Police Special Task Team recorded a major breakthrough when they arrested a 32-years-old man and recovered one firearm.
It is said that the suspect, apart from being positively linked to the murder of a Lieutenant Colonel, has been linked to the attempted murder of the POP Constable and four armed robberies at the four clinics in the Waterval area.
This breakthrough is for the incidents of murder, attempted murder, armed robberies and carjacking that happened at the Vuwani and Waterval Policing areas outside Thohoyandou on 2 days ago.
While the deceased was shot and killed during the incidents, a Constable was shot an injured. Until his death, the Lieutenant Colonel, Phineas Marubibi Mamatsiari (55) from Dzwerani Village was attached to the Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit in Thohoyandou. The other Constable is still recuperating in the hospital and, was working with the Thohoyandou Public Order Police.
