Limpopo Man gets two life sentences for raping two daughters

A 50-year-old man was given two life sentences on Tuesday by the High Court in Thohoyandou after being found guilty of repeatedly raping his two minor daughters for three years, reported by News24.

According to the police, the man had raped the two girls repeatedly from January 2014 until February 2016.

“The man would sneak into the room the girls were sharing around midnight and violate them,” police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said in a statement.

“The ordeal resulted in the youngest falling pregnant and that’s when the matter was eventually reported to the police. A case of rape was opened, and the man was subsequently arrested.”

The man used to live with his two daughters in a village outside Thohoyandou.

Limpopo Police commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba welcomed the long prison sentence.
