Johannesburg - A man has been convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison by the Mankweng Magistrate's Court for raping a 16-year-old girl, Limpopo police said on Thursday.

Gilbert Baloyi, 53, raped the girl in March 2010 in Ga-Mothiba, near Mankweng, said Constable Moses Molepo.

Baloyi was convicted and sentenced on Wednesday.

Molepo said the man knocked on the door of the family home where the girl was home alone and asked for water.

"The man then overpowered the girl, before raping her repeatedly."

    So a 53 year-old man pretends to ask for water from a 16 year-old girl at her house, rapes her REPEATEDLY, and instead is rewarded with water, food, clothing, a bed, daily sporting activities, fellows with similiar interests, the opportunity to study towards a qualification, a library, a church, and 24-hour security all under one roof? *scratching head* Where's mob justice when you need it?

      From what I hear, a jailed rapist gets a rough time at the hands of his cell mates. He'll soon know what it feels like to be on the receiving end. And they don't use KY.

    They wanna kill a dog for attacking a lady and please note the dog has no clue he even did wrong but this piece of sh@t gets royal treatment... I just don't understand!!!!!

      I'm not defending the rapist but, 25 years in jail doesn't sound very royal to me. It'd be better if he was put down. The dog needs to be put down because he cannot be trusted near anyone again. Would you let your child near him? I would not.

    Its good to know that our justice system is still functioning. I hope and pray that the young lady will get through this ordeal and lead a normal life.

    Rapists should be castrated. Or better yet killed!
