As police continue to intensify efforts to bring down the scourge of gender-based violence, Management of police in Gauteng has welcomed the hefty life-long sentence imposed on a convicted serial rapist on Tuesday morning, 15 May 2018, in the Johannesburg High Court.

Shadrack Xidada Chauke was found guilty and sentenced to a life sentence for each count of rape and attempted rape, translating to 25 life sentences (23 counts of rape and two of attempted murder); plus an additional 254 years for multiple counts of attempted murder; assault with intention to cause grievous bodily harm; robbery; and kidnapping.
