North Gauteng High Court sentenced serial rapist, Ephraim Mkabane (32), to three life terms imprisonment for the multiple counts of rape which he committed between 2013 and 2014 around the policing precinct of Letlhabile.
The sentencing is subsequent to his conviction for multiple counts of rape, kidnapping (18 years for 9 counts), robbery with firearm (15 years), pointing with firearm (5 years) and unlawful possession of firearm (5 years).
Mkabane’s modus operandi was to lure unsuspecting victims to various secluded areas where he would threaten them at knife or gunpoint and raped them. When passing the sentence, the judge alluded that the accused did not show any remorse throughout the trial and the victims were subjected to a traumatic ordeal and severe violation of their right to dignity.
