DURBAN, South Africa — A 25 year-old man has today appeared in court for allegedly raping his 89 year-old grandmother in Ubombo area, Northern KwaZulu Natal (KZN).

KZN police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele said the incident took place on April 23. According to him, the victim was seated under a tree near the outside toilet when she fell prey to her grandson.

“It is alleged that the victim had been sitting under a tree at her home, near the toilet, so that it could be easy for her to get to toilet.

At about 5pm, when her daughter-in-law went to take her back into the house, she heard her crying in the toilet.” He said.

Mbele added that the victim was bleeding when her daughter-in law found her.  She informed her that she was raped by one of her grandchildren.

Police were summoned to the scene and they have since opened a rape case.

The victim is reportedly admitted in hospital.
