Johannesburg - Two men accused of raping children in Limpopo have been sentenced to life behind bars, police said on Thursday.

"Levy Abolenleng Sekoboane was sentenced in the Thabazimbi Regional Court following the rape of a 16-year-old girl in Thabazimbi during December 2012," said police spokesperson Ronel Otto.

On the day of the incident, the mother of the girl sent her to a local supermarket to buy groceries. While on her way back, Sekoboane appeared from the bushes.

He dragged her into the bushes where he raped her. He later threatened to kill her if she told anyone.

Meanwhile, Johannes Marintjie Sekgobela was sentenced to life imprisonment at the Mankweng Regional Court. He was accused of raping two boys aged 5 and 8 in 2011.

The two boys were playing in the yard of their neighbour when Sekgobela visited the owner of the house.

"He called them and locked them in a room. He raped both boys, thereafter attempting to buy their silence by giving them R1 each," said Otto.

He was arrested the same day after one of the boys plucked up the courage to tell his grandmother about their ordeal.

"The suspect has been in custody since his arrest and was never granted bail during all his previous appearances," she said.

    They should bring back the death penalty for first degree murder. And implement it for Child molesters child rapists. And any offenders of violence against woman children and animals. No easy death either they have to be stoned to death by the people they offended. Our country would instantly become a better place to live in
