CAPE TOWN - An East London taxi driver has started serving a life sentence for raping a commuter.

In October 2019, Anda Majavu raped the woman who was the last passenger in the taxi.

He claimed she had initiated the encounter but could not explain her injuries.

The NPA's Anelisa Ngcakani said he pushed her into a ditch and covered her with shrubs, but she managed to free herself.

“A 35-year-old taxi driver was sentenced by the East London Regional Court to life imprisonment for raping a 22-year-old commuter in 2019. Anda Majavu picked the woman up as she was hitchhiking from Mdantsane to East London and raped her twice.”
