[WATCH]Bongani Bingwa says alleged abuse by policeman at AB Xuma school is rape

In light of the news that the forensic investigator at the AB Xuma school has been accused of sexually violating the children he was supposed to interview before going to court, Bongani Bingwa asks who will protect the children?

Imagine being a child who has been molested and has to live with the secret. You feel dirty, used and guilty. Was it your fault? What if no one believes you? It was so humiliating!
