Eight Life Sentences And 100 Years In Prison Are Given To A Rapist From Limpopo



Ndivhuwo Tshisikhawe, 29, was sentenced for eight charges of rape, three counts of kidnapping, two crimes of breaking into a dwelling with the intent to rape, and two counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances.

The accused terrorized the villages of Lwamondo, Duthuni, Tshisaulu, and Mvelaphanda between March 2015 and July 2017, according to Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi, a spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in the Limpopo division.

She claimed that Tshisikhawe would break into the victims’ homes, brandish a knife, and rob them of cash totaling R1 400, bank cards, and telephones.


“On July 19, 2017, Tshisikhawe was apprehended; three weeks later, he managed to escape from a place of legal custody. The defendant asserted his innocence and informed the court that he had nothing further to say.

“State attorney Nduvheni Mulangaphuma informed the court during the aggravation of the sentence that Tshisikhawe was a callous individual who was raping young women and small children. He added that these offenses are frequent in these regions. He ended by begging the judge to give him a life sentence.

According to Malabi-Dzhangi, during sentencing, Judge Nare Frans Kgomo stated that the defendant demonstrated his heartlessness and disrespect for women.


He continued by stating that the court has a responsibility to safeguard women and children and that the guilty should be held accountable for their heinous actions by having them punished. The court will not be compassionate.
