Johannesburg - A man was jailed for life by the Tzaneen Regional Court on Tuesday for raping a 15-year-old girl, Limpopo police said.

Delco Lebea, 21, was one of five men who raped the teenager on August 8 last year at a compound in Bolobedu near Tzaneeen, said Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.

The other four men were still being sought.

Limpopo police commissioner Lieutenant General Simon Mpembe lauded the child protection unit in Tzaneen for its efforts in bringing the rapist to justice.
