THE Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCSO) Units in KwaZulu-Natal secured a number of convictions on crimes directed at women and children recently.

The team of investigators from FCSO units secured 49 convictions. Among the convictions are 13 life sentences, 319 years and six months that were secured in the past month for rape.

A total of 390 suspects were also arrested for rape, attempted rape, sexual assault, child abandonment, kidnapping, armed robbery, attempted murder and other offences.

“These sentences are evidence that FCS units are committed to ensuring that those who prey on defenceless women and children are brought to book. Their names will also be listed on the National Register of Sexual Offenders,” said KZN acting commissioner Major General, Bheki Langa. - Supplied.
