Durban Dad Accused Of Strangling His 4 Kids Now Faces Rape Charge, Court Hears

  |   Sanews

A 44-year-old Durban father, who is accused of killing four of his children, appeared stoic and calm in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, this despite an additional charge of rape being added to his case.

The rape charge was joined to the case this week, and is unrelated to the murder of the four children.

The father, who has not yet pleaded to the rape charge, appeared confused about his legal representative during proceedings.

"My family said a private lawyer would be here. If he is not here, I will have to use Legal Aid," he told the court.

An additional charge of rape was added last week with the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) saying the incident allegedly occurred mere days before he allegedly took the life his children.
