Johannesburg - Two men who used toy guns to rob a house and gang rape a woman were jailed for life by the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Monday.

Acting Judge Madlala Xolo sentenced the men to life for the repeated rape of a woman inside the house and 15 years for the robbery.

Three men - Sifiso Malunga, Siyabonga Mathevula and Lungani Ngiba - committed the crimes in Maphumulo in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands in 2010.

All three were arrested and pleaded guilty.

However, they escaped. Nearly three years later, Malunga and Mathevula were found and re-arrested.

Last week, they pleaded guilty to the rape and robbery charges.

Ngiba has not yet been found.
