Postmasburg Magistrates’ Court sentences a 27 years old man found guilty of raping his six years old niece, to life in prison.
The heinous criminal is said to have happened 25 December 2018 at around 01:00, where the accused snatched the young girl from her shanty where she was sleeping with other siblings.
The uncle who is said to have been visiting the family at that time forced the young girl into a veld where he forced himself onto her.
Waking up in the morning to find the young girl missing, the family went to search for her and found her not far away from the house.
That is when she told them about incident and showed them where the perpetrator was hiding.
Police were then called to the scene and the convicted remained in custody until his sentencing.
