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.

Lieutenant General De Lange congratulated not only the investigators, but also the victim who alerted the Police of the whereabouts of the suspect, as well as the witnesses who remained resolute and cooperated with the Police throughout the investigation, ensuring that Chauke’s reign of terror in and around Tembisa is brought to a complete halt.
