Former South African Media Giant Exec Faces Sex Crime Allegations

Alleged sex offender Willem Breytenbach has been granted U.S.S$3,400 (R50 000) bail during his first appearance in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court. Breytenbach went to ground following the publication of claims of sexual abuse of minors during his tenure at Grey College in Bloemfontein. The former Media24 executive closed all his social media accounts and was unreachable by phone, News24 reports. He also closed his business, Lightspeed Digital Media in Cape Town, and told nearly 30 employees to resign.
