Rapists get 15 years each

2015-09-17 06:00

THE Pietermaritzburg Regional Court sentenced Billy Mzwenkosi Dlamini (51) from Willowfountain, to 15 years’ imprisonment for raping a six-year-old child.

The incident occurred in March at a family member’s house, Plessislaer police spokesperson Captain Musa Ntombela said over the weekend.

The reporting of the rape and the investigation by the Plessislaer Cluster led to the case being taken to the public prosecutor, and the successful conviction of the accused last week on Friday.

In another incident, the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court sentenced Sanele Mkhize (26) to 15 years’ imprisonment for the rape of a 15-year-old girl, who was apprehended and threatened by Mkhize on her way back from a night church service at Willowfountain.
