2019-04-03 06:00

A 45-year-old man from Botshabelo got two life imprisonment terms for rape.

The Botshabelo Regional Court sentenced him on Tuesday (26/03) after finding him guilty of raping his two biological daughters, aged 14 and 16 in 2017.

The younger daughter was raped on 26 November, which led to his arrest after she told a church member. The man’s identity is withheld to protect the victims. He also has a son and lived with the three children in Section F.

Sgt Martin Xuma, police spokesperson, said the rape of the older daughter came to light during investigation of the younger daughter’s case.

The accused remained in custody for the duration of the trial and the children were placed under the care of a church member as their mother has passed on.
