Johannesburg - A Limpopo man was jailed for life by the Mankweng Regional Court on Friday for raping his niece, police said.

Robert Maropeng Mokgolobotho, 23, was arrested on 4 January 2010 after his 6-year-old niece told her mother that he had raped her, said Constable Moses Molepo.

Mokgolobotho had persuaded the girl to go with him to his house in Makgoba, Limpopo by giving her sweets.

The girl told her mother what had happened and she went to the police.

Mokgolobotho was arrested the next day, said Molepo.
