Durban - A convicted robber and rapist has been sentenced to 121 years in jail by the Scottburgh Regional Court.

Sibusiso Hadebe Shibe, 23, from Mfazazana near Hibberdene, broke into a house belonging to a 44-year-old woman in April 2011. He threatened her with a spear and raped her, said police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane.

“On September 8 … a domestic worker from Hibberdene was on her way to bath when he approached her outside her employer’s house. He told her that he was sent by the owner to cut grass and pushed her into the house,” said Zwane.

He threatened her with a sharp object and raped her twice.

He broke into another house in the early hours of the morning on 13 December of the same year and raped an 11-year-old girl who was on holiday with her parents, he said.

He was arrested in the evening of the same day and was charged with three counts of robbery and rape.

In all three attacks, he fled with items stolen from the houses.

Zwane said he was found guilty on Thursday last week and sentenced to 121 years’ imprisonment.
