Judge Mabel Jansen said in a Facebook post that in Africa, women are there for the "pleasure" of men and that she is yet to meet a black girl who has not been raped at about age 12.
Judge Mabel Jansen said in a confidential Facebook post that in Africa, women are there for the "pleasure" of men and that she is yet to meet a black girl who has not been raped at about age 12.
“In their culture a woman is there to pleasure them. Period. It is seen as an absolute right and a woman’s consent is not required” as well as “I still have to meet a black girl who was not raped at about 12. I am dead serious.”
"What I stated confidentially to somebody in a position to help has been taken completely out of context and referred to specific court cases," she said.
And then others followed:
The governing African National Congress (ANC) said at a press briefing that the judge must be "banned' from networking in any South African court.
“That kind of stereotype must not be found within the bench” said current ANC national spokesperson Zizi Kodwa during a media briefing in Parktown, Johannesburg.
“People like Jansen and Matthew Theunissen don’t appreciate the past and the present of this country. Racism has no place here,” Kodwa said.
She said in a series of tweet:
"A black man that uses RACISM as a scapegoat for real societal issues such as rape and sexism is a COWARD."
"Stop defending black men and rape culture and question the REALITY out there; words are still cheap! #MabelJansen"
