Man gets 25 years for raping disabled

2017-03-01 10:15

The Botshabelo Regional Court has sentenced rape perpetrator Tebello Petrus Senyane to 25 years in prison for raping a mentally retarded and physically disabled woman.

He was convicted and sentenced after being found guilty of raping the victim in December 2015. Judgement was given on 10 February.

The victim was 20-years-old at the time of the crime. She was sitting on a rock in front of her friend’s home when Senyane approached her. He placed his hand over her mouth to pre- vent her from screaming and took her to his shack where he raped her.

Sgt. Martin Xuma, police spokesperson, said the victim managed to report the incident to her friends.
