A prayer service and vigil for the eight-month-old raped in Ravensmead, Cape Town, and all woman and child victims of violence is to be held at the Rapha Church, Balvenie Road, Elsies River, at 6.30 on Tuesday night.
The vigil is being planned by the African National Congress in Elsies River.
The baby was allegedly kidnapped from her home and raped before being dumped in a road.
She was admitted to Tygerberg Hospital.
The hospital's communications officer, Martie Carstens, said the baby's life was not in danger.
The baby was being treated with AZT to protect her against possible HIV infection and social workers were with her, said Carstens. http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_i...4839319B000838
In the pre-dawn darkness on Saturday, an eight-month-old Cape Town girl was snatched from her parents' bed, raped, sodomised and left bleeding in the street.
The sheer horror of grown men raping a defenceless infant, which shocked the world when it happened to nine-month Baby Tshepang near Upington earlier this month, has now become a reality in the Mother City.
The baby's mother, Sarah, wept uncontrollably on Saturday, barely able to speak.
The infant is to be operated on at Tygerberg Hospital. The extent of her internal injuries were unknown late on Saturday. http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_i...6432020700B243
teenager who allegedly kidnapped an eight-month-old baby for a muti killing three months ago will appear in court next month, the Sowetan newspaper reported on Thursday.
Baby Elsie Gwedlu, now 11 months old, was abducted by a 15-year-old girl from the Barcelona informal settlement near Benoni in September.
The teenager alleged she was instructed by another woman to kidnap Gwedlu, who was to have been killed for muti.
The muti was to have been used by the teenager's boyfriend, who wanted to evade arrest for armed robbery.
According to the report, the woman rented a shack for the teenager and baby at the Barcelona informal settlement.
