The Virginia Regional Court has ­sentenced rape accused Molantoa Masoha (22) to 15 years in prison for raping a 15 year old teenager on 14 May this year.

The rape reportedly took place in a shack dwelling in Leratong Park in the Meloding township.

The victim had accompanied her friend, who had met with her boyfriend, known as Tumelo, at the shack dwelling.

While Tumelo and his girlfriend were sleeping in another room, Masoha raped the 15 year old teenager in the kitchen.

Capt. Malebo Khosana, Thabong police cluster spokesperson, said the accused thereafter threatened to kill the victim should she tell anyone.

“The 15 year old victim reported the incident at the Meloding Police Station, where a rape case was registered for further investigation by Det.Const. Themba Jilimba, who ensured conviction and sentencing,” says Khosana.
