Sexual offences are thriving in South Africa. From bestiality to incest to female on male rape, male on female rape and adults raping infants, we’ve seen the worst of such cases. For instance, we’ve once reported about some unknown person(s) raping and hanging babies on trees, we made a litany of some of the unbelievable bestiality instances in the country when a man kidnapped and raped his employer’s dog, we told the tale of three ladies on rampage raping males on gunpoint and have ceaselessly reported on the many rape crimes in the country as part of our in-house policy to help curb the negative happenings in the country via our reports.
The 2015 crime statistics indicated that sexual offences detected as a result of police action skyrocketed by 34.3% whereas 53, 613 sexual crimes were recorded. With that, let’s regard this as a reminder that the crime is so alarmingly common in the country to such extent that rapist aren’t scared of those campaigning against them. Yes, even those campaigning against rapist are being raped.
According to reports, an American woman who is in South Africa to promote her “Stop Rape, Educate” campaign shared on Instagram her own alleged rape ordeal in the country.
The American woman, Amber Amour narrated that “it was only a few minutes ago but sometimes these things happen so fast it’s hard to remember all the details…” She had been sick for two days and on her first day out, went back to her old hostel to leave a note for a friend. There, she meet another guy, Shakir who according to Amour, “was desperately trying to get with” her.
She further related that she kissed him once but he seemed drunk so she told him it was bad timing, and that she had already met someone.
“Before heading out, I went upstairs to say hi to one more friend, Clyde from the states. Shakir followed me upstairs and said he was going to take a shower. He invited me to join. I said yes because the water at my current hostel is pretty cold and after 2 days of being sick, I just really wanted a hot shower.”
“As soon as I got in the bathroom, he forced me to my knees. I said “stop!” but he just got more violent. He lifted me up and put his…in my…I asked him to stop, again, as I began to cry. When he shoved it in my…that’s when I passed out. I woke up a few minutes later and saw him trying to creep out the door.
When he saw that I was awake, he came back to finish me off in the shower. I have all those…feelings that we get after rape…shame, disgust, suffering. I’m here, alone, and any DNA has been wiped away in the shower. The South African police will just roll their eyes when I walk in. Feeling sicker than ever now.”
