- TZANEEN - Sexily-dressed
women in a small Limpopo town have fallen prey to a group of teenage street
kids that masturbate in public whenever they see them.
- One woman, 24-year-old Gloria Shingange, had an embarrassing
moment on Thursday when the boys drooled over her at the Tzaneen Mall because
she was wearing a mini-skirt.
- "They followed me around the mall with their hands
inside their trousers. I walked out of the mall and when I stopped at the
robot next to the Tzaneen police station they shouted saying I was attractive,"
- She said the boys took out their penises and started
masturbating in full view of everyone while groaning in ecstasy.
- Cops just laughed "One of them said my legs were
sexy. He then closed his eyes, grimaced and shouted at the top of his voice
in apparent enjoyment of what he was doing," said Shingange.
- "He held up his penis for everyone to see and started
masturbating," she added.
- "I was very embarrassed. They stopped traffic and
all eyes were on me."
- Shingange's embarrassment was however not going to end
- The incident sent police officers at the Tzaneen station
into stitches as she tried to open a case of public indecency.
- The police allegedly refused to open a case, claiming
that the street kids didn't commit any offence because they didn't touch
- "They told me straight in the face that they were
not taking my complaint because I wasn't raped," said Shingange.
- Mopani police spokesperson Superintendent Moatshe Ngoepe
said he wasn't aware of the matter.
- "This is an act of public indecency and cannot be
tolerated," Ngoepe said.
- "Anyone who tries to open a case of any kind at
a police station and finds no help must not leave the station without speaking
to the station commissioner," he added.
- Some people however have a different view.
- Vegetable vendor Mthavini Khoza said she condoned the
- "These boys are doing the right thing because their
actions are likely to reduce the tendencies of wearing 3cm (sic) skirts
in public and embarrass every woman," she said.
- "I wish they rape them one day so they may start
respecting their bodies," Khoza said.
- One of the boys, a 14-year-old whose name cannot be revealed
because of his age, had no qualms to speak about the incident.
- "I feel very happy after masturbating next to a
woman with beautiful legs and wearing see-through clothes," the boy
- "There is no girl out there who wants a filthy glue-sniffing
street kid so the only way to relieve our sexual appetite is to masturbate,"
