Johannesburg – A top ANC official at Luthuli House is embroiled in a rape scandal that is set to rock the revolutionary party to it’s core.

The official, whose name can not yet be revealed for legal reasons allegedly sexually assaulted his wife’s two nieces who had come to visit in 2012. The two girls who were 15 and 12 at the time of the incident claim that the politician grabbed the sister’s breasts and buttocks at his Sandton house.

The incident came to light after the two girls returned home and confided in their child minder who then brought the matter to the attention of their guardian.

The courts have barred the publishing of the politicians name as one of the children involved in the case is still a minor.

The girls’ guardian – a close relative – told court during cross examination with the ANC official’s attorney, that police officers came to him pleading that the charges be withdrawn.

He said this was after the official’s own bid to influence him flopped.

“He came more than five times, and the other time he was with his wife,” said the guardian.

“He begged to see the girls saying they were traumatised. He asked if we could get indoors and discuss the issue and I told him that was impossible.

“I chased him away and told him I never wanted to see him again. I barred members of my family who were present from talking to him.”

He told the court that he would not directly say the official had sent the police officers but said, relying on his reasoning, it was very clear that his political influence was involved.

“There was a connection and I can’t dispute that. They asked that (the victims) put signatures on papers they had so that charges against the official would be dropped but I refused,” said the guardian.

“I also received calls from one Inspector Mabasa from Armed House requesting to see my children and I went there on three occasions only to find him out of office. I have kept his phone numbers as evidence.”

The guardian told court that he reported the case to the police but nothing was done.

The court case is expected to carry on, on Monday morning with women’s rights activists expected to make a show of support to the victims by congregating outside the court house.
