Violence against women and children are at the top of the Western Cape SAPS’s priority list and we will do everything possible to bring perpetrators to book.

This was shown again by Detectives from the Kuils River FCS unit when they ensured that an offender was removed from our community.

A 49 year old husband from Mfuleni was sentenced to 20 years direct imprisonment on 19 July 2017 for raping his sister in law, who was 20 years old at the time.

During March 2015 his wife left her younger sister and her husband with their children while she went to church. Upon her return she was informed that her sister had been raped by her husband.

The husband packed his clothes, took all their money and ran away to Eastern Cape.

In April 2015 the husband was arrested.
