South Africa’s Police Minister Bheki Cele has welcomed the arrest of a female police officer who is shown in a video having sex with her 10-year-old son in 2020.
The 40-year-old policewoman, who is based in Limpopo Province, has been charged with the rape of a minor and other charges that relate to sexual grooming and the creation and distribution of pornography.
She is expected to apply for bail in court in Marble Hall on Monday.
Cele said what the “dishonourable” policewoman did is beyond comprehension. He said:
When you are told that a member of the SAPS has been arrested, it is one of the most painful things.
But to do this one is even beyond comprehension, this is not just a member of the SAPS, it’s the real mother of the boy…
She is arrested and to us, she is no more an honourable member, she is a criminal.
In the video which has been circulating on social media, the policewoman can be seen lying naked on a bed.
The camera then shows a young boy, also naked, holding the woman’s thighs.
She then tells the boy to get on top of her and continues to encourage the boy despite him telling her that he does not know how to do it.
The woman was charged with creating and distributing child pornographic material and sexual grooming of a child on Friday, 20 January 2023, the same day on which she was arrested.
The boy was taken to a place of safety where he will be given psychological treatment and assistance. | SABC News, IOL
