Triple child rapist jailed

2007-11-20 00:00

According to law, the three life terms will all run concurrently.

Judge Chris Nicholson said it seems to him that Sibonelo Mazibuko (30) of Kwavala location, Loskop, is a person who must be incarcerated for the rest of his life for the protection of society.

He said Mazibuko ravaged three girls - aged seven, eight and 10 - and is a “menace to society”.

He said it seems to him that a man who raped not one, but three girls, is incapable of reformation.

The judge said it was submitted on Mazibuko's behalf that his guilty plea was an indication of remorse. However, he asked whether, if he was truly remorseful, Mazibuko would have gone on to rape two more young children after the first attack.

“His remorse only appears when he is arrested and facing the law courts,” Nicholson said.
