Man sentenced for raping grandmother
The man who raped his 92-year-old grandmother in Mpumalanga got two life sentences.
PRETORIA - The man accused of raping and killing his 92-year-old grandmother in Mpumalanga was handed two life sentences in the North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.
Sipho Kubeka (38) sexually assaulted and murdered his grandmother at her Kwa-Mhlanga home in September in 2011.
According to Pretoria News, Kubeka raped his grandmother, Elizabeth Kubeka, as she was about to die.
He said he had gone into her bedroom and found her sleeping.
The 38-year-old strangled and raped the 92-year-old before she died.
Kubeka sat motionless in the dock when judgment was being handed down in an almost empty court room.
During proceedings earlier this year, he openly admitted to murdering and raping Elizabeth Kubeka.
The judge handling the case said the convicted murderer showed little remorse when confessing to the crimes.
The judge added that the sentencing was harsh because Kubeka made his own flesh and blood feel unsafe in her home.
