Tzaneen - A 72-year-old man was arrested this week after he allegedly raped two of his grandchildren in Bolobedu, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

The man allegedly raped the two over a period of four months in Ramochinyadi village, and allegedly gave them money to keep quiet, Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said.

"He called them to the local sports ground, allegedly raped them one by one and then gave them R50 each and warned them not to tell anyone."

Eventually, one of the victims told her mother, who called the police.

The man would appear in the Bolobedu Magistrate's Court soon.
