Johannesburg - Two men were jailed on Thursday by the Eastern Cape High Court for the rape of an 11-year-old girl, Eastern Cape police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Mtati Tana said Nkosinathi Booi, 33, and Sinethemba Gwadi, 23, were each sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment for raping the girl at Fort Grey informal settlement in February 2010.

"The men forced the girl to drink liquor before they raped her," Tana said.

    If its not Corruption its Rape, whats happening to our Country???!!

      What is happening is that the people making the rules should themselves be in jail.

      Eastern Cape again! Are they in competition with Limpopo to see who can produce the most/worst criminals?

    And Zooooma will release them soon in any case; with his pre-release program - sit what 2 years for destroying a the life of this child... disgusting!

  • Bruce - 2012-05-10 17:37

    At last a conviction - no nonsense of the victim being too young to testify, but the sentence not nearly long enough. For heavens sake, this was a child!

  • Junebugg - 2012-05-10 17:39

    Everytime I read about Rape stories on News..I feel like punching my PC screen (FYI this is like 3 times a day minimum)...This is a crisis now.. The Government must start acting, and Harsher sentences must be given... If we can organize mass marches for eToll why cant we do the same for Rape??? Its worse because the victims are getting younger and younger smh

    Damn it man,

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-05-10 17:58

    Why do some rapists get life and others 18 years. Surely rape is rape?

      MagdaKus - 2012-05-10 20:02

      Probably depends on how injured the victim was. How can any human do this to a child! (Well- to another human as well for that matter)

    Swallowing air to keep my disgust down

  • Comfido Nziyane - 2012-05-10 18:27

    shame on da poor little girl, what were these cowards thinking. they deserve life sentence.

  • vcassy - 2012-05-10 18:29

    STOP raping guys....Magosha is on sale.,

    It doesn't help to put criminals in jail ~ it will help if they were never born.

      Barend - 2012-05-10 18:53

      do you not think that the death penalty would have made these guys think twice about doing this in the first place?

  • Gieljam - 2012-05-10 18:49

    The term men in this instance is a misnomer rather "hinjas" as they do not represent anything a true man will stand for.They are like most brainwashed and corrupted imbeciles who think that everything out of the normal is accepted by to days back sliding society , poofters and scums...

  • Leah Ndebele - 2012-05-10 19:09

    sorry 2 the victim,our world has turn into monster,i think people who do bad 2 other people they should get harder punshment.

      alansmartSnr - 2012-05-10 19:40

      I fail to see what this big fuss is about when you compare it with our government who is raping each and every citizen(including born and unborn) with their corruption, theft - and all else that would be inclusive to these callous rapist. They are doing the same - just on a bigger scale and by abusing power. They should be hung up by their Galls.(sorry - typo)

  • rudiwaan.joseph - 2012-05-10 19:16

    scumbags! Sorry excuses for men! The only punishment i hope you dont escape is the one meted out in prison! I hope you get it everyday of your jail life multiple times,forcefully and without vaseline! I will arrange for a daily delivery of soap to you in your cell so that you always have enough soap to drop! Bastards!

  • Dooie - 2012-05-10 19:17

    I still think the death penalty should be enforced on any rapist or murderer. Send them to HELL in stead.

      Kathleen - 2012-05-10 20:06

      That won't help.

  • songezo.kilani - 2012-05-10 20:17

    Hw on earth do u rape a 11 year old?, i'm so dissapointed. The is nothing i hate more than crime on children. Crime on children espicially of this kind should be a death sentence. #sick

  • reuben.sesele - 2012-05-10 20:21

    i think the law must get tough realy cos people do all this nonsense knowing they wont det heavy sentence

  • Thabo Moses Letshabo - 2012-05-10 21:10

    Why should the law give this guy 18 years that's nothing you should give them 39 years in prison so they can rot their

  • Delaine - 2012-05-10 22:06

    This is traumatizing. How can u rape a child that is 11 yrs old. Did he not think that this child is so young, young enough to be ur daughter. Looking forward to see what the law is gonna do. Coz this guy should for the death penalty. For situations like this they should allow the death penalty.
