A Northern Cape father was sentenced to life in prison for raping his daughter over a period of three years, police said on Thursday.

The Calvinia Regional Court last week sentenced him to life, plus 26 years, for rape and sexual assault, Lieutenant-Colonel Dimakatso Mooi said.

The sentences would run concurrently.

Mooi said the 52-year-old man had been molesting his daughter since 2000, when she was 9.

He made her believe he was preparing her to be a young lady, she said.

The daughter reported what her father was doing in July 2013.
