“When I was fifteen years old,I look part in a gang rape”
One in four South African men has raped a woman, according to a survey out this month. It’s a saddening, but not suprising statistic for Dumisani Rebombo to learn. When he was fifteen, he joined in the gang rape of a woman, under pressure from his friends to prove that he was ‘a man’. Dumisani has written about the experience for the BBC website. Read his story here.
Now 49, Dumisani has gone back and apologised to his victim, and works as a community development worker in South Africa trying to stop the sorts of violence he once inflicted. He has agreed to come on the programme next week for an hour. What would you like to ask him or say to him?
