Two life sentences for "Please call me rapist"

A North West man has been handed two life sentences for rape after he was caught visiting one of his victims and proposing his love for her. North West police spokesperson Colonel Amanda Funani said Kabelo Motlangwane, targeted women who lived alone.

She said that in February 2015, he raped two women, aged 26 and 36, on two separate occasions

After raping the second woman, Funani said, he took the victim’s phone then sent himself a Please Call Me, so that he could have her number on his phone.

A few days after opening a rape case against him, the victim got a call from the rapist, saying he heard that she had opened a case against him and asked her why she would do that when he was in love with her.

This resulted in her devising a plan with her neighbours and the police. The police asked her to agree to the meeting, so they could arrest the man when he showed up. He was also charged with theft and house breaking with the intention to commit theft. The police and the National Prosecuting Authority had successfully opposed bail.
