A South African mother told a court on Monday that she witnessed a local priest rape her five-year-old daughter. She said that the girl had been playing with the priest’s daughter at his home. When the woman went to pick her up, knocked on the door, and received no answer due to the loud music playing inside, she says she looked through a hole in the door and saw the priest having sex with her child.
“They were on the bed which was about three paces away from the door. He was naked, stark naked. I screamed when I saw what he was doing,” she said.
The woman told acting judge Thembekile Malusi that she called out to her partner for help and together they forced the door open. She said that Dyubele rushed to get a jacket hanging behind his door and covered the front of his body.
“I rushed to my child and I saw that she was still wearing her jersey and her nightie was pulled up. Her panties, pants and shoes were all off ,” she told the court.
The priest, Zukile Dyubele, says the whole thing is a misunderstanding and that he had only been “sleeping in that bed with both little girls.”
A forensic nurse found that the five-year-old had indeed been penetrated.
Undaunted, Dyubele’s lawyer claims the mother is accusing his client of child rape because of sexual jealousy, and that she must simply feel jilted because the promiscuous priest prefers other women.
