An elderly man who raped a 10-year-old girl has been jailed for 25 years, North West police said on Friday.

Captain Aafje Botma said the 71-year-old man was sentenced in the Mahikeng Regional Court on Wednesday for raping the girl in Mogopa Village in Groot Marico in 2010.

He had asked her to buy bread for him at a shop. On her return he invited her into his house and raped her.

The girl's teachers suspected something was wrong and informed the police.
