France was handed 18 years for raping two women, who were both 18 years old in 2017 and 2018.

One of the victims was raped at a fountain where she fetched water.

The other victim was cornered by the accused on her way returning from school with friends.

Mashiloane was sentenced to six years.

The court found him guilty for raping a woman in the presence of her husband in May last year. They were sleeping when the attack occurred.
