A 13-year-old lesbian girl was raped in Atteridgeville, Pretoria, the department of justice and constitutional development said on Friday.
'Government condemns this senseless and cowardly act of criminality,' department spokesperson Tlali Tlali said in a statement.
He said the girl, who was open about her sexuality, was raped in what seemed to be an act of
'corrective rape' on Thursday.
According to activists, lesbian women are often victims of corrective rape, which is forced sex with a man to 'cure' their sexuality.
