Woman Cuts Off Man’s Penis For Raping Five-year-old Daughter To Death

Veronique Makwena, a South African woman, has appeared in court for cutting off a man’s penis, after suspecting him of raping her five-year-old daughter to death.

The 23-year-old mother is charged with attempted murder, alongside sister-in-law, Noxolo Maneli, and family friend, Siyabonga Pakade, for attacking the man, after the body of the girl, Chantelle, was found in a public toilet.

Fundile Matoto, a lawyer, who agreed to represent the women without a fee after the case drew national attention, admitted the attack, but said the charges should be reduced.

The body of the minor was reportedly dumped into a public toilet the following day by Makwena’s husband, which the police said they have also launched an investigation into.

Another suspect, a man who is said to be in his 20s and an acquaintance of the family, has been taken for DNA test, but the police say they cannot arrest him until results of the test are released.

It was reported that Makwena, Maneli, and Pakade, attacked the suspect, saying he was responsible for the girl’s death, a month after the incident.

The man named them as his attackers at the hospital he was rushed to for a surgery to reattach his penis.

Makwena was arrested and jailed for two weeks, until a charity organisation, Enough is Enough, helped raise money for her bail.

The woman, speaking outside the court on Wednesday, she told News24: “When [Chantelle] was found, my heart sank, I was crushed.

“My [daughter] was gone. While we looked for her through the night, she had been lying in that cold toilet. I was broken, I still am.”

The judge adjourned the case until February 2020, pending further investigation.
