Nothing will compensate for the torture of Anene: ILIVE

Sorry, by e-mail | 15 February, 2013 02:25

Every time I see Anene Booysen's face on the news, I get teary eyed and keep saying "I am sorry", as if I knew her personally.

Her "survival" might be a blessing as she identified one of her attackers, but no one should go through what that girl went through.

What those men did to her is not human.

It does not matter how many years her rapists get, they will be protected and their needs will always be met in prison, not forgetting that all of that will be done with taxpayers' money.
