SIX years ago a 15-year-old girl was attacked by two youths and raped by the one.

Her rapist, Xolani Shange, now 20, was sentenced to 19 years’ imprisonment in the Greytown Regional Court last week.

On 19 June 2008, the teenager and her sister were on their way to collect firewood when Shange and his friend Tololo Masikane grabbed her and dragged her to Shange’s house. There her hands were tied and she was gagged with the Shange’s shirt to stop her screams.

Masikane left the house and the teen was raped by Shange.

The magistrate sentenced Shange to imprisonment for rape and Masikane was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment and declared unfit to possess a firearm
