Brig. Mohale Ramatseba, police spokesperson, says the 73-year-old man was found guilty on two counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.

The sentences were ordered to run concurrently.

His name will be included in the sex offenders register.

He was also declared unfit to possess a firearm, says Ramatseba.

Ramatseba says during the court proceedings it came to light that the man had attempted to rape the victim once and raped her twice in November and December 2014.

According to the young girl’s testimony the man would storm into her bedroom during the night while she was asleep and rape her.

He threatened to kill or hurt her should she scream or tell any one about the rape incidents.

In another incident the man forced the victim to accompany him to the veld to collect wood and raped her in the veld.

On the third occasion the old man attempted to rape the victim, however, his attempts were unsuccessful.

He was immediately arrested after the girl reported the rape incidents to her mother, who alerted the police.

Ramatseba says the victims’ testimony and forensic evidence linked the accused to the crimes of rape and attempted rape that he was charged for.

Sgt. Teboga Nowalaza was the investigating officer.
