The Kuruman Regional Court recently sentenced a 38-year-old man to 20 years imprisonment for kidnapping and raping a 14-year-old girl from Tsineng.

THE KURUMAN Regional Court recently sentenced Tumisang Sebogodi, 38, to 20 years imprisonment for kidnapping and raping a 14-year-old girl from Tsineng, Kuruman.

Northern Cape police spokesperson Sergeant Timothy Sam said that during the trial, the court heard that Sebogodi grabbed the girl, forced her into his grandmother’s house and raped her on October 26, 2013.

“Sebogodi was found guilty and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for one count of rape and five years for kidnapping. Both sentences will run concurrently,” said Sam.

He added that Sebogodi was declared unfit to possess a firearm and his name will be recorded in the National Register for Sex Offenders.

The Northern Cape provincial commissioner, Lieutenant-General Koliswa Otola, commended the investigating officer, Detective Constable Kentse Eunice Mokgosi from the Kuruman Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit, for “ensuring that the suspect was brought to book”.
