Local

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said on Monday it was confident the “birthday rapist” will be brought to book when Mlungisi Mtshali's trial resumed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.

He was due to appear in court last Wednesday but was mistakenly released from custody in February.

At least eight of Mthsali's alleged 20 rape victims have now testified in camera at his trial.

The NPA's Mthunzi Mhaga said, “Based on our assessment of available evidence, we believe strongly that we will secure a conviction as the evidence implicates the accused.”

Mtshali, who faces a total of 128 charges, complained about the fact that he had to wear shackles around his legs, arguing that he had handed himself over to police voluntarily  
at the weekend.

The trial will resume on Tuesday, as more of his victims are due to take the stand.
