Speaking on The Lebo Lion show, Jackie said that many attempts are being made to destroy the truth about her existence.

Jackie said she kept quiet until she saw the picture of her abuser on a board looking for votes.

After seeing his face, Jackie said she went to report the case at a police station, but did not get any help.

She then went to another police station – and she faced the same response she got at first.

Speaking on her case, Jackie said: “There were ANC campaigns in FS, there were boards of faces of people to vote for, & I saw the guy who raped me there.”

Police statistics reported that 42 289 rape cases were reported in 2019 and 2020, which is an alarming number.

Despite many campaigns to reduce this number, we continue to hear and read about these cases on a daily basis.

If you are the victim of a rape, or know of someone who has been a victim, report the attack at your nearest police station in order to get the medical and psychological assistance required.
