Judge jails rapist pastor for 10 years

2008-09-01 00:00

A pastor who performed voluntary work, including running feeding schemes in Osizweni, northern KZN, on behalf of the Anglican church, has been sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment for the rape of a 15-year-old girl.

He said he was aware of the attitude of the community that when a person is convicted of rape he should be put away for life. “What the community loses sight of is that each case must be judged on its own facts and circumstances,” he said.
