Johannesburg – A serial criminal has been sentenced to five life terms following a three-year crime spree in and around Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

Wonderboy Myeni, 42, raped, kidnapped, defrauded, damaged property and impersonated a police officer between 2009 and 2012, Major Thulani Zwane said.   

By 2012, KwaZulu-Natal police had him on their list of the province’s eight most wanted men.

In addition to the five life terms, he received another 38 years imprisonment when the Pietermaritzburg Regional Court sentenced him on Wednesday. He was found guilty of 18 charges.

In one case, he kidnapped two women near Pietermaritzburg and took them to Msinga where he repeatedly raped them. They escaped and reported him to police.
