South Africans took to social media to share their views on the alleged #DrosRapist's court case on Tuesday.
On 2 October, Nicholas Ninow appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on charges of sexual assault and possession of drugs.
His identity was kept a secret until his court appearance, and Briefly.co.za earlier reported on the little known facts about Ninow.
Posts about the trial shook social media and Twitter was flooded with reactions to Ninow's appearance on Tuesday.
So, we decided to take a look at eight cut-throat reactions to the #DrosRape case.
1. Woman takes shot at Ninow in court
Nomsa Maseko shared a photo of a woman, who spoke her truth in the court, telling Ninow he should be ashamed of himself.
2. The media should name the alleged attacker
3. Desperate father agrees with black folks
Social media user @Mike_Zietsman wrote, "#drosrapist I tend to agree with you black folk on white privilege, my daughter was raped from age 5yrs old, since his arrest March 2018 five postponements later and still has not pleaded and the accusers name may not be mentioned. He white, he's an advocate and an acting judge."
4. Stop talking about the safety at Dros and focus on Ninow
5. There's double standards in reporting on alleged rapists
Social media user @KevinMalunga wrote, "Media double standards in ‘implementing’ the law.Xolani Lantu was named from the beginning and the child’s picture splashed all http://over.Now this guy is called the #DrosRapist."
6. Kids show up outside court to support the victim
7. If found guilty, the #DrosRapist should pay
8. He deserves more than life in prison
