AKA has joined the wave of outrage that has swept through the country after the rape of a six-year-old girl at a Dros restaurant two weeks ago

On Tuesday, the Pretoria Magistrates Court was a hive of activity when the 20-year-old man accused of raping a little girl at a Dros restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria, appeared.

According to several reports the man did not apply for bail and returned to prison after the case was postponed to 1 November.

Taking to Twitter shortly after the court proceedings, rapper AKA who has a three-year-old daughter with DJ Zinhle said he was afraid for his little girl’s safety.

“As a father, this whole Dros rapist saga is heartbreaking and scary. I fear for my own daughter’s safety and what kind of world she has to grow up in. It’s so messed up, man, so so messed up,” he said.
