Eusebius: Chemical castration of rapists will not stop their violence

Eusebius McKaiser and a caller share their views on chemical castration of rapists.

The African National Congress Women’s League (ANCWL) is calling on lawmakers to consider harsher penalties for rapists in this country.

The ANC’s Women’s League has also made calls for more decisive action to be taken against rapists, such as chemical castration.

This comes after Nicholas Ninow was accused of raping a seven-year-old child at the Dros restaurant in Silverton and has been denied bail and will remain in custody until 1 November.

Show host Eusebius McKaiser says the call by the Women's League is at best well-meant but misguided, and at worst populist.

READ: Do we want to know anything about the accused Dros rapist's life asks Eusebius?

We know that at the heart of rape lies power. Rape is about an exertion of power, rape is not about sex. So you can chemically induce lower levels of libido in men that have been convicted of sexual crimes but you are not necessarily going to deal with the underlying driver which is a decision to be violent.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show Host.

Khulekani, a caller says our biggest problem as a society is that there is a huge focus on the girls who are victims instead of focusing on teaching young boys on how to treat a woman.
