Thirteen months after she was raped by Nicholas Ninow, the now eight-year-old victim still has nightmares about him, scared that he will attack her in her room, like he did in the Dros restaurant bathroom.
Taking the stand to testify in aggravation of sentence in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Thursday, forensic social worker Captain Karin Botha detailed the trauma of the rape and how it haunts the victim to this day.
Botha told the court that the victim, who cannot be named to protect her identity, could still vividly remember what Ninow looks like and what he wore on the day he raped her in September 2018.
The victim told her psychologist that Ninow "hurt" her, detailing how the rape unfolded.
"I sometimes still see him when I have nightmares," the victim reportedly said. "I see him when I go to bed. I try not to imagine him and what he did to me."
