Man convicted of rape of 6-year-old girl

Johannesburg - The man accused of raping a 6-year-old girl and murdering his girlfriend has been found guilty in the Kwazulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.

Gerald Rosselloty, who defended himself claiming his State-appointed counsel was incompetent and did not follow his instructions, would be sentenced on Wednesday.

Rosselloty was convicted of raping the girl in 2006 and murdering his girlfriend Nokwazi Ntuli on 17 April 2010.

He was also found guilty of arson, having set fire to the simplex where he murdered Ntuli.

Ntuli's burnt body was found on a mattress 2km from where Rosselloty was staying at the time.

Judge Rishi Seegobin said Rosselloty was a perverted liar, as he tried to deceive the court and had not set out a defence, but rather tried to counter evidence as it was presented.

He said evidence regarding the rape of the 6-year-old girl pointed to Rosselloty, 40.

Prosecutor Dorian Paver said Rosselloty's previous convictions would militate against any finding that he had prospects of rehabilitation.

Rosselloty had previously been convicted of rape and robbery in 1993, possession of drugs in 2002, drunk driving in 2004, and two counts of aggravated assault in 2005.

Rosselloty told Seegobin alcohol had changed his nature.

    This thing called Gerald Rosselloty is not a man. A man does not rape. Please let justice take drastic measures against this strange inhuman thing.

    Since the Politicians will not reintroduce the death sentence, send him to prison for 250 years without ever getting parole, and no special privileges such as T.V. books & studies.
