A man was sentenced to life in prison by the Umlazi Regional Court for raping his daughter

repeatedly over a period of five years, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said the 48-year-old man was convicted and sentenced on Thursday last week.

The man started abusing his daughter in 2006 when she was seven-years-old, in the Ematashini area.

"The man used to rape his daughter at home and he always threatened to kill her if she ever reported the matter," Zwane said.

In November last year the girl reported the rapes to her sister and the man was arrested.
