Both crimes occurred in the Umlazi area in 2015 and 2016. In the first case in September 2016, the 48-year-old victim was on her way home from the local tuck-shop when the 32-year-old accused approached her.

He grabbed her and began assaulting her, while also calling her names. The accused then ordered the victim to go to the nearest bush, where he raped her.

Communications officer of Umlazi SAPS, Cnst GS Nyoni said, “A case of rape was then opened and the accused was arrested on the same day. He appeared in the Umlazi court, where he was found guilty of rape and assault.”

Cnst Nyoni added that the accused was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for rape and one year imprisonment for assault.

Sgt MG Khanyile from the Umlazi FCS worked hard and long on this case to ensure that justice was served. In the second incident, which occurred in December 2015, the 32-year-old accused raped a 14-year-old girl.
