Establish priority

Police handling the case of a six-year-old Soweto girl who was raped by a 26-year-old man who has since escaped from custody should hang their heads in shame.

Police handling the case of a six-year-old Soweto girl who was raped by a 26-year-old man who has since escaped from custody should hang their heads in shame.

After repeated promises that they would find a suitable place of safety for her, they have done nothing since her ordeal in August.

This is disgusting.

Her mother, in desperation that the molester might strike again, has taken the initiative to move her to a relative's place.

Dragging their feet in such a serious matter the police have now raised doubts in the public eye about their willingness to search for this rapist who has been on the run since November 14.

The police must stop playing games with this kid's life.
