A man accused of raping a ten-year-old girl has been sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

Major Thulani Zwane said Sibusiso Bukwini, 26, was sentenced at the Pinetown Regional Court on Monday.

Bukwini raped the girl on July 23, 2013 in Wyebank near Pinetown.

After she arrived home from school, Bukwini entered the house and raped her.

She was rescued by a relative who arrived home.

"Bukwini was arrested and charged for rape. He was convicted and sentenced after several court appearances," Zwane said.
