Hi Guys
I was forwarded this info, and as the older members on this site know, I am Keen on knowing the stats. These numbers however shocked the sox off me.

Though sexual abuse against women and girls is more common, according to a survey carried out in 1 200 schools across the country, and published in BioMed Central's International Journal for Equity in Health, two out of five male South African learners say they have been raped. According to statistics, the greatest increase in sexual crimes is against infants and children under the age of 7.

This is Double the presumed international standard. It blows my mind that we are in such a dire state.

It is without a doubt, more evidence of this planet's war against children. The only this thing standing between the kids and the perps is US. Get active and save those boys and girls.

I've been told face to face by South Africans that the rumored endemic belief that you can cure / prevent AIDS by doing a virgin - regardless of age or consent - is very very real and widely followed, with an avalanche of child rape (including infant rape) as its result.

Hey Martin,
statistic is just approximation, I should add that we can't compare different cultures, backgrounds and nations/countries.
In every society abuse is happening and every single victims is equally important.
Keep fighting for African brothers!
