Johannesburg - An alleged rapist has handed himself over to Eastern Cape police because Dutywa residents were "after him", police said on Monday.

It was alleged that the 25-year-old man had raped a 70-year-old woman in that area on Saturday evening, said Major Ernest Sigobe.

The man has been detained by police and is due to appear in court soon facing a charge of rape.

"Community members are advised to report incidents of this nature to the police and also not take the law into their own hands as that might jeopardise the investigation..." he said.

    All those who rape our citizens should be sentenced for life or death, they are dangerous to our society. Death penalty should be brought back and only be used for rapist, human traffickers and rhino poachers we are sick and tired of people behaving like wild animals in our society.

    I repeat, referendum on death penalty to test how citizens feel about about the crime rate and the solution to it. criminals have more rights than law abiding citizens. capital punishment is a deterrent to crime.
