Hi All

Please, Please Read this message (just a bit of your time).
Once you receive this - please copy and paste this onto a new message 
so that we can keep it neat as we pass it along.

On the 28th of October 1999, a young 12-year old girl's future was
completely shattered. She was raped and almost stabbed to death. She
sustained multiple stab wounds in the back, chest and stomach as well as

the face. One of the stabs she received penetrated her spine and she is
now paralysed for life.

This little girl is my cousin. I went to see her in hospital on Friday.
When I saw her, she was laying on her side and all I could see was her
stitched face. Because her whole little body was riddled with stab
wounds, she is unable to find a comfortable position. When I asked 
her how she was doing, she whispered: " I am sore, I am sore". She 
asked her mother to turn her over on the other side, and as I helped 
her mother to do so, I saw that her whole throat was covered in the 
most terrible blue and deep purple bruises. Her rapist tried to shut 
her up when she was screaming. When that did not help, he tried to 
stab her to death. All I can say is thank god she is alive.

The reason for this email is plain and simple. The South African
judicial system is up to maggots, and corruption and discrimination 
is rife. No justice will be brought to this case. The rapist ( who 
was caught I might add ) will be out on parole in a couple of
months. In the meantime, one beautiful little girl's life has been
changed. Not only does she have to live with this memory, but she has to
be reminded of it every single day in the form of her paralyses.
The South African government wants to implement something called
chemical castration, where they inject men with a chemical that 
decreases their sex drive. This is NOT good enough. Rape is not in 
the male member, but in the male mind.

I know this happens to woman all over the world on an hourly basis, but
this time it has hit too close to home and I CANNOT and I repeat CANNOT
stand by  and do nothing about it. Therefor I would like your help in
signing this petition for a harsher sentence for rape. Life imprisonment
might be a good suggestion as ironically enough, prisoners do not
tolerate child molesters and rapists, and because of this, they have 
their own "system of punishment" in prison. 

I want this man to go through agony for the rest of his life. I want 
him to be reminded of the pain that this little girl has to go 
through for the rest of HER life. Why should this animal deserve ANY 

Please forward this to as many people as you can. The more signatures 
we have from all over the world, the better our chances that someone 
in power might listen. If we don't do something about it, some or 
other time it might hit too close to your home......

Also, please keep me updated by regularly sending back a list to
me,(every entries) so I can keep record of our progress.

I sincerely appreciate your help and support in this matter, and so does
Luze Homan and her mother.

Kind Regards
Nikki Botha
