President Thabo Mbeki used his New Year's message Friday to call on South Africans to stop a wave of rapes of babies and children. "Rapes occur in our homes, they occur amongst relatives, they occur among people who know one another," he said. "We must make sure that indeed we break the silence with regard to this, that we report the wrongdoers to the police and make sure that the system of justice punishes these people appropriately."

I prayed the man would not kill me." But becoming a statistic--a rape occurs about every 10 minutes in South Africa--only began her ordeal.
