The one-year-old’s mother discovered the child had been sexually abused while bathing her on Wednesday afternoon, said Captain Mpande Khoza.
“The child’s mother said her father was a suspect because he used to rape her when she was 12. She’s now 18.”
She had left the child in the care of her mother. Khoza said the man was a Mozambican, but had a South African identity document.
He would appear in the Protea Magistrate’s Court on Friday. – Sapa
