A MAN convicted of raping a teenage girl last year, was sentenced to 18 years in jail yesterday in the Pinetown Regional Court.

Sbusiso Ntuli (31) was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl at her home in July last year after dragging her from the bedroom she was sharing with her siblings.

The girl’s sister woke up, and caught Ntuli in the act.

The case was opened at the Pinetown police station and transferred to the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit for further investigation. The following day, Ntuli was arrested and charged with rape.

KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant-General Mmamonnye Ngobeni welcomed the heavy sentence. “We highly appreciate the passion and dedication of our FCS members when they are investigating these criminals who targets and abused our vulnerable women and children. They thoroughly investigate the case and present a comprehensive docket before the magistrate,” she said.
