POLICE MANAGEMENT WELCOMES HEFTY PUNISHMENT IMPOSED TO RAPIST

NELSPRUIT – The management of police in Mpumalanga has welcomed a hefty punishment that was imposed on a man who raped his 10-year-old niece on Christmas eve of 2019. The 35-year-old man was sentenced yesterday, Thursday 08 March 2021, by the Mkobola Regional Court.

The court sentenced the accused after details were heard on how the young girl became a victim in the hands of a man who was supposed to have protected her unconditionally. It is said that on 24 December 2019, he preyed on a little girl during the time when her mother and grandparents were not around. As her uncle, he was trusted to look after her.

The girl was playing in the veranda when he called her to his room which was at the back of the main house. She reportedly refused to go to her uncle’s room. He then dragged her to his room and tied her with a rope before raping her repeatedly. She later escaped after begging him to let her go and get food.

On the other hand, her mother came back and was worried when she could not find her daughter in the main house as well as the uncle. She (mother) then went to her neighbours to look for her but without any success. The mother came back to the house and was shocked to see her daughter walking in a strange way. The girl then narrated her story to her mother.

The girl was then taken to the doctor and it was confirmed that she was indeed raped. The man tried to convince the girl’s mother not to lay charges against him, but the matter was eventually reported to police. Meanwhile he went into hiding in one of his family members. However, his family instead sought justice for the girl, and they handed him over to police where he was brought to court and hence the sentence as follows:

– The man was sentenced to life imprisonment for rape.

The name of the accused had not been released to protect the identity of the victim

The accused’s particulars will also be entered into the National Register for Sex Offenders. The court found him to be unfit to work with children and his particulars will also be entered in the National Child Protection Register.

The police management in the province has noticed with much concern the moral decay in the society where adults entrusted with a responsibility to protect and care for children but instead they break that trust and molest children instead. The management has further thanked the family for handing him over and applauded the excellent work done by members of the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS), the Prosecution as well as the Judiciary for their resilience in this case which saw him getting a well-deserved sentence
