Girl (3) gang-raped by teens
A three-year-old Free State girl left home alone by her mother was gang-raped by three teenage boys.
JOHANNESBURG - Despite the efforts of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign another child rape has been reported, this time in the Free State.
A three-year-old girl was gang-raped and stabbed by three teenage boys on Monday night.
She is now in critical condition in hospital.
It's understood the little girl was left at home alone when her mother went to a tavern.
Childline South Africa's Gita Dennen has urged parents to ensure their children are never left unattended.
"I think parents need to be encouraged to form networks with each other so that if one parent has to go out on an errand, they arrange with the community that they look after one another's children. As we always say in South Africa, it takes a village to raise a child."
