Rapist jailed for 20 years

A man who climbed through a teenage girl’s bedroom window in a village near Kuruman and raped her at knifepoint was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment at the end of August.

Tshepo Thabang Manyeke (33) from Bothithong Village was found guilty by the Mothibistad Regional Court for raping a 15-year-old girl on 11 January 2015.

Manyeke was armed with a knife when he gained entry to the house in Gakhoe Village at approximately 04:00. He woke the sleeping girl, threatened her with a knife and raped her.

Manyeke was arrested three days later, but was released on R1 000 bail.

On 28 August he was found guilty on a charge of rape and sentenced to direct imprisonment.

He was also declared unfit to possess a firearm and his name was recorded in the National Register for Sex Offenders.

The investigating officer, Sgt Freddie Moamogwa, was commended for the meticulous investigation which resulted in the 20-year prison sentence being handed down.
