Convicted rapist gets three life sentences

Lep­ha­lale Region­al Court has giv­en a man con­vict­ed of rape three life terms.

The court hand­ed the sen­tences to Kgothat­so David Thutl­wa (23) on Tues­day, after the Judge found him guilty of three counts of rape.

Kgothat­so raped his three vic­tims aged between 14 and 21 on sep­a­rate occa­sions in the Wit­poort polic­ing area in Kaulet­si vil­lage,  Ga-Sele­ka between 2015 and 2016.

Limpopo Police spokesper­son, Brigadier Mot­lafela Mojape­lo said inves­ti­ga­tions revealed that he threat­ened the vic­tims with a knife before rap­ing them.

“Through out­stand­ing inves­ti­ga­tions by Sergeant Thu­lare attached to the Lep­ha­lale Fam­i­ly Vio­lence Child Pro­tec­tion and Sex­u­al Offences (FCS) Unit, the accused was pos­i­tive­ly linked to the three cas­es,” said Mojape­lo.

Limpopo Police Com­mis­sion­er, Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Nneke Jim Led­wa­ba, wel­comed the three life sen­tences met­ed out on Kgothat­so.

He com­mend­ed the inves­ti­ga­tors for work­ing hard on the case until the court sent the sus­pect to jail for­ev­er.
