Pietermaritzburg - The KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg sentenced a Mooi River man on Wednesday to 25 years in jail for kidnapping, robbery and rape.

Mbekezeli Mazibuko, 23, pleaded guilty and received two separate 15 year sentences for rape and aggravated robbery, and eight years for kidnapping.

Parts of the sentences were made to run concurrently, making an effective sentence of 25 years.

Mazibuko, who had two previous burglary convictions, kidnapped a woman and hijacked her car while she was parking outside her home in December.

Police caught him while he was raping her.

    So thus equivalent to life sentence in SA, He should be locked up at least for 10yrs, buy hey in SA he will probably be out before serving 5

    He had 3 previous burglary convictions and he is 23. Did they give him 6 months for those?

    Hang him by his balls until he turns into Biltong, then give the biltong to his "mother"

    He should have been locked up for ever. When he comes out of jail he will just go do it again and how do we know as parents that he doesn't rape our children maybe. My personal opinion is that the should bring back the death sentence. He would be in jail then but he would be dead.

    serious debate is required on sentencing / actual time served & the need to bring back the death penalty. The system as it stands does not work.

    I say bring back the death penalty!!!it's not fair towards these innocent victims who are scared for life while these animals still go on with their lives. RSA is like a magnete for crime even foreiners come here to commit crime and get away with it why did they remove the death penalty?!!!!it only worsen our counrty!!!!
