The Bloemfontein Regional Court has sentenced Mpho Reginald Bahumi (32) to life in prison after finding him guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl at school.

This finding came after a trial that lasted two years.

At the time of the incident, the victim was only 14 years old.

Bahumi’s name will also be entered into the sexual offenders register. He was also declared unfit to possess a firearm.

The victim testified that Bahumi raped her in a classroom at one of the high schools in Bloemfontein.

Bahumi was employed as a security officer at the school and was officially on duty. The victim testified that Bahumi grabbed her as she came out of a toilet and dragged her to a classroom, where he raped her.
