CAPE TOWN - A 32-year-old man has on Thursday been formally convicted of the rape and murder of 11-year-old Stacha Arendse in Mitchells Plain.

Randy Tango pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

He was arrested shortly after the child's body was found dumped on a field in March.

Judge Robert Henney’s guilty verdict was expected after Tango’s admissions were read out in court earlier this week.

On Tuesday, the 32-year-old admitted to raping Arendse twice in his home and then murdering her because he was afraid she would tell her mother.

He lived in the same street as the deceased and her family.

Tango strangled the girl, covered the body in a sheet and placed it in a rubbish bin, which he wheeled to a soccer field in Tafelsig.

Meanwhile, Henney has found Tango not guilty on four counts of rape involving two women between 2010 and 2011, due to a lack of strong evidence.
