THE child witness who this week testified how her older brother allegedly brutally raped her two years ago, yesterday burst into tears when she was asked to identify him at the Port Elizabeth High Court.
Now aged 12, the girl was overcome with emotion when escorted into the court room and asked to point out if the man standing trial was indeed her brother. The girl, who has been testifying from a different room in camera, confirmed it was.
Her 23-year-old brother is also facing charges of murdering her 40-year-old mother. Their names cannot be disclosed to protect the girl.
