Johannesburg - A Limpopo man was jailed for 15 years on Wednesday for raping a pensioner at Thune village, in the Ga-Mamabolo area, police said.

Constable Moses Molepo said Mondi Maloka, 25, appeared in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on a charge of rape and housebreaking.

He was convicted of raping the 60-year-old woman in May, after breaking into the house through a window.

"Maloka was positively linked by DNA results," said Molepo.

He still faces two more charges of rape. "While out on bail on the first charge he allegedly raped a 65-year-old woman in her home.

"On 11 March, he broke into the house of 93-year-old woman and allegedly raped her too."

Maloka is expected to appear in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on June 1.
