The Polokwane Regional Court has sentenced a 26 year old rapist, Martin Tebogo Mamabolo from Mankweng location outside Polokwane to an effective 40 year jail term for two counts of rape that he committed between 2014 and 2015.
The accused was using the same Modus Operandi in which he would lure his victims by advertising that he is selling an RDP house at Unit F, Mankweng location.
His barbaric act began on October 2014 when he raped a 57 year old woman from Ga-Matlala village outside Polokwane. He phoned his victims and they agreed to meet him in Polokwane. Upon their arrival, one of the victims was approached by Mamabolo’s nephew and the duo departed to Mankweng location intending to view the RDP house on sale.
They arrived at the house and she rested in one of the rooms while waiting for Mamabolo. Mamabolo suddenly arrived and forcefully raped her.
Another rape ordeal occurred after his gentle persuasion convinced a middle aged woman whom he met on the street. Mamabolo took her to the house and while inside inspecting the house, he dragged her to one of the rooms and raped her.
