Johannesburg - A man was sentenced to 15 years in jail in the Empangeni Regional Court for raping a 9-year-old girl, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

On November 16 last year, Bongani Ndimande, 33, sent the 9-year-old to the shop at Jamela Reserve in Nseleni township, spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker said.

"When she came back, he locked the door and raped her. He threatened to kill her should she tell anyone. The victim did not report the initial rape, however when Ndimande raped her again, she reported the matter to her grandmother."

A case of rape was reported at the Nseleni satellite police station and the docket was transferred to the Empangeni family violence, child protection and sexual offences unit for further investigation.

Ndimande was arrested and appeared in court on several occasions until he was sentenced on Friday.

KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni said such "revolting behaviour" would not be accepted from any person in society.
