Limpopo provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba welcomed the sentencing a 30 years old man who was found guilty of two counts of rape and murder that occurred over six (6) ago.

Both criminal acts were committed on 11 August 2012 and 24 November 2013 at Ga-Masoma and Mogapeng villages in the Maake Policing area outside Tzaneen. The court found during evidence presentation that the accused broke into the houses of the deceased elderly women in the early hours of the morning, raped and then killed them.

The accused was ultimately sentenced to a combined thirty years (30) years imprisonment for both rape and murder cases that he committed in 2012 and another combined 32 years imprisonment for the crimes he committed in 2013. This translates into 62 years effective jail term.

The commissioner said people like this should not be allowed to roam around the streets with people as they are a danger to the society.

“The sentences will certainly ensure that this convict spends the rest of his life in jail and this should send a clear and strong message to all perpetrators  that the police are more than determined to remove from society, all those who commit similar acts of gender based violence,” concluded General Ledwaba.
