Eyewitness News reporter Edwin Ntshidi gives an update from the North Gauteng High court in Pretoria.

Rights group Not in My Name has expressed concerns over seven-year-old Dros rape victim being called to testify against Nicholas Ninow.

The girl has testified in camera at the North Gauteng High court in Pretoria.

Ninow has pleaded guilty to raping the minor in a bathroom at the Dros restaurant in Pretoria last year.

We spoke to Not in My Name and they told us they have criticised the National Prosecuting Authority for having to bring the child to come and relive the events of last year when the child was raped at the Dros restaurant.

Edwin Ntshidi, Reporter - Eyewitness News

They are saying it is unfair for the child because the accused has admitted to raping the child.

Ntshidi says the prosecutor says it is important to question the accused and the child about what happened that day.

The prosecutor says there are inconsistencies in the accused's affidavit where he was confessing to this crime. They are saying the versions of the accused and the child's do not match.

The four witnesses from Dros are collaborating their evidence and saying this is the man they found in the toilet cubicle.
