A police spokesman today said investigating officers had been sickened by the alleged scheme. He said: "This young woman was raped and it appears her attacker had been set up to commit the crime by her own mother. She was desperate to be a grandmother but her daughter was not showing any signs of wanting a baby. That is when she decided to arrange for a man to make her pregnant against her wishes. The attack happened on Sunday. The mother and the rapist were arrested the same day." The woman, who cannot be named to protect the identity of her daughter, appeared before magistrates yesterday to face a charge of being an accomplice to a rape. She stood in the dock alongside Finus Fetnadi, 33, the man accused of committing the attack. Police said they believed the mother had enquired within the community to find a man willing to commit the crime. It is not known whether she offered a financial reward to the man but police believe she identified her daughter as the intended victim. She then allegedly ordered Fetnadi not to use a condom during the assault, which happened at the village of River Cross near Burgersfort, around 250 miles north east of Johannesburg. Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said the incident had devastated the woman's daughter and community. He added: "The poor girl must now wait to see if she has conceived a child as a result of the attack. Meanwhile she knows her own mother was responsible. Those who known them in the village can hardly believe what has happened."We can't believe it either. Wooooooooow!
