Tweeps are saying that it is not entirely Sonia Mbele's fault but also Reokeditswe Makete, who at this point have not file a case against, Donell Mbele.

"She did right if Omphile want open the case she must do that it's not the responsibililty of the mother to open the case it should be the person who has been abused, Sonia is doing the right thing to correct the mindset of the boy by sending him to reheb case can still be openned" wrote Siya Mfundisi
"If the victim hasn't opened or for whatever reasons did not open a case, a member of the public can institute a private prosecution in terms of section 7 and 8 of the Criminal Procedure Act. Don't hlanyazisa nje if ungazi bafo" wrote Mathews Ntanzi
