Durban - A man was sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment for raping a 12-year-old girl in his Hillcrest house, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

"The 44-year-old man appeared in the Pinetown Regional Court on Wednesday," Captain Thulani Zwane said.

Zwane said the girl was sent by her aunt to give food to the man and clean his house.

While she was cleaning, the man ordered her to fetch a bathing dish in the bedroom.

"When she went to the bedroom the man entered, locked the room and raped her," he said.

The man gave the girl money and told her not to tell anyone, but she told her sister.

    20 years is not long enough. With the amount of rape and murder these sentances are not effective.

    Why do i feel like i have read this story before... or maybe this trick has been played before. What i don't understand is why this 12 year old girl was sent to this house alone...
