A 35-year-old man was sentenced to life imprisonment
by the Umlazi Regional Court last week
for raping his 13-year-old daughter.
The Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General
Mmamonnye Ngobeni said it is very disturbing that a father will carry out such
horrendous act of violence against his own child.
Colonel Jay Naicker said the victim’s mother was not
at home during the incident and she reported the incident when her mother
Naicker added that the case was opened at the
Bekithemba police station and transferred to Umlazi family violence, child and
protection and sexually offences unit for the investigation.
"He was eventually sentenced life imprisonment in
Umlazi Regional Court we are very pleased with the sentencing of the services
handed down by the court and we are glad that the man will be behind bars where
he belong.” Naicker said.
