Released rapist’s rampage

2008-03-27 00:00

A rapist who, on the day of his release from prison on August 24, 2002, "descended like a predator on the first woman he could find" attempting to rape her and her three-year-old daughter, as well as a third victim a short while later, was described by a high court judge in Pietermaritzburg yesterday as a menace to society.

His first victim, a 40-year-old mother, testified that she was walking with her three-year-old daughter when Mkhize knocked her down. When he tried to rape her, she put up a violent struggle, and he bit her on her thigh and breast. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
