A member of the South African National Defence Force ( SANDF ) committed suicide on Saturday afternoon after a video clip of him raping a teenage Zimbabwean border jumper in the bush found its way to social media.
”The notorious soldier was in the habit of asking for sex and financial favors from Zimbabweans who cross the South African border illegally. He had helped a young girl jump the border through Limpopo river not knowing the teenager had no money at all,which resulted in him having sex with the poor teenager without her consent”,added the deceased’s workmate who declined to be named.
According to another report,the rapist soldier dragged the teenager to the nearby bush after learning that the girl could not afford to pay him for the services rendered.Fortunately,another soldier managed to record the ‘abuse’ video without the deceased’s consent who later took his life after learning that the disturbing footage was already circulating on Whats App.
SANDF is yet to comment on the tragedy and is expected to arrange a decent burial for the deceased despite his disgusting behavior.
