Double life sentence for Braemar rapist uncle

A 26-year-old Braemar man appeared in the Scottburgh Regional Court on Friday, April 20 where he was convicted on two counts of rape and sentenced to a double life sentence.

 The man’s 11-year-old niece went missing from home on November 25, 2016 at 2pm and returned home the following morning at 6am. When questioned by her mother, the little girl said that she had slept over at her uncle’s home. Suspecting that something was amiss, the mother questioned her further and learnt that the child had been sexually violated by her uncle. A medical examination at the G.J. Crookes Hospital in Scottburgh confirmed that the child had indeed been sexually assaulted. A case of rape was registered by the Sawoti SAPS and assigned to Detective Warrant Officer Lucas Ngcece for investigation. The uncle was duly arrested and brought before court to stand trial.

  Major General Sethenya Nxamagele, the Ugu Cluster Commander, welcomed the sentence and commended the investigating officer for securing the conviction. “Statistics show that most of the sexual abusers and child molesters are known to their victims and many are relatives or family members. Parents need to be more conscious of this fact and be proactive by always knowing where their children are and not leaving them with someone who may take advantage of them. I am pleased that this child predator will spend the rest of his days in prison away from innocent little girls”, said the General.
