Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal father has been jailed for 15 years by the Empangeni Regional Court for raping his daughter, police said on Friday.

Colonel Vincent Mdunge said the man was sentenced on Thursday.

He raped his then 14-year-old daughter twice in May last year, at his house in the Macekane area, Empangeni, where she had gone to visit him with her two siblings.

Mdunge said the man dragged his daughter from the mattress she was sleeping on and raped her in his bed.

He raped her again in the early hours of the morning.

"She escaped after the second rape and fled to the bush, where she hid until sunrise.

"She was later rescued by a neighbour, who contacted the girl's mother."

The man was arrested four days later at his homestead in Nseleni, Empangeni.
