The Provincial Commissioner of the police in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma, is elated on recent sentences handed over to rapists in three separate incidents in the province.

The General’s elation stems from hefty sentences which were passed by three courts in the province.

The Carolina Regional Court sentenced Zeph Gladwill Nkosi to life imprisonment on 7 December 2017, for repeatedly raping a 12 year old girl on 24 March 2012.

The court heard how the accused got inside the room in which the victim, a sibling and their mother were sleeping and dragged her by the leg out to the bushes at Tjakastad, Elukwatini near Badplaas.

Albeit the mother screamed hysterically pleading for her offspring, the villain continued with his cruel intentions.

After the evil ordeal of Nkosi he let her go back to her house. The accused was arrested on 25 March 2012 and appeared in court the following day, where the case has been on trial up until sentence was passed.

The Provincial Commissioner of the police in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma welcomed the sentences and stated that they will serve as a deterrent to other would be rapists and criminals. “The fact that the sentences are passed just after launching Operation Safer Festive Season and around the currency of the 16 Days on no violence against women and children campaign, are very significant in sending a strong message that the law enforcement agencies and justice fraternity (JCPS Cluster) mean business, especially to crimes against vulnerable people”, said the General.
