Grahamstown Father Gets Double Life Sentence For Repeatedly Raping Daughter

The NPA welcomes a hefty sentence for a grade 8 pupil who stabbed his teacher to death.

The Grahamstown High Court sentenced a 48-year-old father to double life imprisonment for raping his own daughter over a period of time.

He was slapped with the sentence this week.

Police said he repeatedly raped the young girl in 2017 on a farm where they lived.

Police’s Namhla Mdleleni said: “Queenstown cluster commander congratulated the investigating officer and said they understood the challenges that we encountered while seeking justice.”
