THE parents of two young girls, aged five and six, who were raped by their father, were sentenced in the Pretoria Regional Court this week. The father was sentenced to two life sentences for rape while the mother was sentenced to five years for failure to report sexual abuse. The abuse came to light when the day care teacher became aware of sexual behaviour displayed by the girls toward other children.

This is head of Stellenbosch University’s medical faculty’s division for medical virology Professor Wolfgang Preiser’s advice. Professor Preiser said this after the…

EFF MP and spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi took advantage of the funeral service of the late Parktown Boys’ High School pupil, Enoch Mpianzi, to talk about land and xenophobia. Speaking during the funeral service held at Kensington Secondary School in Joburg, yesterday, Ndlozi took a swipe at the ANC government for the arrest and deportation of undocumented migrants. Said Ndlozi: “They (police and immigration officers) go around asking for papers. On whose land are they asking for these papers? How do you ask for papers from a fellow African on land you don’t even own? “They arrest and deport people from Africa on African soil and never arrest and deport the British.” Gauteng MEC for community safety Faith Mazibuko delivered a message of condolences on behalf of the Gauteng government. “The past two weeks have not…

MISS Universe Zozibini Tunzi may have missed yesterday’s Sun Met shindig, but this didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of fashionistas who flocked to the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town. Zozi, as the beauty queen is affectionately known, was billed to be the face of the prestigious horseracing event. This alongside media personality, Bonang Matheba. But Sun International late on Friday issued a statement stating Miss Universe would miss the event, dubbed Africa’s Richest Race Day. Zozi is expected to touch down in Mzansi next week.

The House of Bonang champaigne brand was the official alcohol sponsor.…

FORMER Muvhango hunk, Mutodi Neshehe, is alleged to have let the little green jealousy monster get the better of him. This as the calm and collected actor allegedly lost his cool when he saw his ex-wife, Leslee Dalton, chatting to another man during a braai in November. The alleged incident, one of countless fights between the couple since their acrimonious break-up, took place at Leslee’s house in Honeydew, Jozi.

billiat drags baby mama to court

KAIZER CHIEFS goal poacher Khama Billiat sprinted to court this week to ask the law to protect him from his marauding baby mama. Billiat, who is embroiled in an off-the-field drama with a 22-year-old woman, approached the Randburg Magistrates Court this week to obtain an interim protection order against her. The duo is expected to appear in court on 27 February when the woman should give reasons why the order shouldn’t be made permanent.

This happened two days after Sunday Sun ran an article about how she stabbed him on the hand with a screwdriver outside the Midrand Police Station a fortnight ago. According to one of…
