Its a pleasure to me to share with you the dynamics of sexual offenses Act.I believe it will stirr you up and also open your eyes as it did to me.
Firstly I want to give you the definition of rape:According to the old Act rape is a sexual penetration of the penis to a vagina.
New definition:Rape is unlawful and intentional sexual penetration of a person without consent.Sexual penetration means penetration of the vagina, anus or mouth by a sexual organ including a penis,finger or object representing a penis like a bottle or broom stick.
This new definition was passed by the parliament in 2004 and is called sexual offenses Act that changed the definition of rape because the old definition was declared unconstitutional by the constitutional court.
WHAT DOES THE ACT MEANS BY:
.Unlawful-when you commit sexual act with the child under 12yrs or with mental disabled person
.Intentional-knowing write from wrong
.Sexual penetration-manage to put your penis/object in someone's vagina/mouth
