Two more rapists have received very weighty punishments by the courts.

On Friday, two men – 46-year old Lulamile Lepile and 57-year old Zandisile Sandi were both sentenced by the Grahamstown Regional Court in the Eastern Cape.

The reason for their punishments is due to their rape of a 15-year old girl in June last year. They both received life sentences for the rape cases and received 15 years each for sexually assaulting a 24-year old woman the same day.

The National Prosecuting Authority’s Anelisa Ngcakani explained:

On 7 June 2019, the two men kidnapped the 15-year-old and 24-year-old as they were walking at 8 pm. They then took them to a house and raped them repeatedly at knifepoint.”
