A Pietermaritzburg Regional
Court convicted and sentenced a 45-year-old stepfather to an effective life
imprisonment for rape he had committed in 2014.
Thulani Zwane said…“A
13-year-old victim was sleeping in her room when she was approached by the
accused who took her to another room where she was raped.
The mother of the
victim woke up and noticed that her husband was not in bed, she immediately
went and check on him in the other rooms but only discovered that the victim
was also not in her bedroom.
She further checked the other room upstairs and
found her husband with the victim both naked.
A short while later the victim’s
mother took the child to the doctor for examination and it was confirmed that
she had been raped.
A case of rape was
subsequently opened at Plessislaer SAPS.”
