Johannesburg - A 21-year-old man has been given two life sentences for the rape of his two nieces, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Friday.

The man was convicted and sentenced on Wednesday in the Eshowe Regional Court.

The girls, aged 7 and 8, were raped at the Matsheketsheni Reserve, Sundumbili on 13 March, while their mother was away.

The uncle was arrested on the same day the incident was reported.

The KwaZulu-Natal provincial commissioner, Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni, welcomed the sentence.

"This will send a strong message to other culprits who target vulnerable women and children," she said.

    the fact that our schooling is ranked in the lower 10% worldwide is a definite contributor in situations like these, absolute moral decay

    Racial profiling is important in combatting all forms of crime, so as to mobilise correct amounts of SKILLED police resources to particular areas.
