#NotInMyName to visit Dros after horror rape

The Not In My Name Movement says its members will pay a visit to a Pretoria restaurant in a bid to find clarity on the "lack of humaneness" it has displayed.

On Saturday, a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped in the men's toilet of a Dros franchise in Silverton, Pretoria.

The activist organisation says it's been appalled and horrified at the response from Dros Silverton following the incident.

The restaurant group came under fire for their statement, issued three-days after the alleged rape and which has been criticised for lacking empathy and compassion.

Although the company did convey it's sympathy and offered assistance to the family affected, the movement says Dros' reaction is somewhat sanitised.

"It about the statement that Dros has issued where they were asked what they will be doing to ensure this atrocious act doesn't happen again - they hung up the phone and did not explain how they will be ensuring the safety of our future leaders," says spokesperson, Mo Senne.

A 20-year-old suspect appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday where the case was postponed until 2 October.

He has been remanded in police custody. 

"This is a very unfortunate wake-up call. We are calling on restaurants to have trained staff that can look after kids, surveillance and ensure children are safe," says Senne.
