Man jailed for rape, housebreaking

Vincent Dala (22), a resident of Thabong, was on 20 April sentenced to ten years’ direct imprisonment for rape, and four years for house­breaking with an intent to rape.

The sentence follows an incident that took place on 29 October 2017, at about 04:00.

The victim, a 56-year-old woman, was in her house sleeping when the door was broken open.

A man, unknown to her, entered and raped her.

A case of rape was opened for further investigation.

Intensive investigation conducted by Const. Moleboheng Molete linked Dala to the case through DNA.

Dala was awaiting trial for a Thabong murder case and he was in custody at the Hennenman Correctional Services.

Dala was charged with rape by Molete and taken to court for his first appearance on 28 March, during which he pleaded guilty.

The case was postponed to 20 April, when he was sentenced.

The sentence was passed by Magistrate Deon van Rooyen.

Adv. Eli Masoane prosecuted the case in the Welkom Magistrate’s Court.

Brig. Cynthia Molale, Thabong station commander, commended the sentence and applauded Molete on the good work.

”We congratulate Molete on the sterling job and urge all our members to continue doing more in their endeavour to fight all criminal activities.

“This sentence will send a stern message to other criminals that we will trace and arrest them wherever they are hiding,” Molale said.
