ANCWL BOKONE BOPHIRIMA WELCOMES LENGTHY JAIL SENTENCES FOR CONVICTED RAPISTS

The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) in Bokone welcomes the lengthy prison sentences imposed on two convicted rapists, Obed Pilusa (31) and Sipho Nampa (31) by the North Gauteng High Court last Thursday.

These two were convicted for a string of rape and robbery charges committed between January and May 2016 in Brits, Mooinooi and Ekangala in Mpumalanga. They were found guilty of targeting and raping individual women aged between 19 and 35.

The modus operandi in these cases is worrying as it's clear that the rapists targeted hitch-hiking women who are already vulnerable because they seek help with transport. Pilusa was slapped with six life sentences for rape and 120 years for eight counts of robbery. The co-accused Nampa was sentenced to seven life imprisonments for rape and 120 years for eight counts of robbery.

These sentences will send a strong message to all other rapists and anyone who's even thinking of attacking women in this manner. South Africa's struggle with women and child abuse is a serious one that needs to be given adequate attention and as the ANC Women's League, we are encouraged by such an outstanding job by both the police and the entire justice system.

We congratulate our law enforcement agencies and once more throw our weight behind their hard work to keep women and children safe. We will continue to raise awareness through our ANC Women's League programmes and urge women to continue reporting such crimes.
