JOHANNESBURG - Two Limpopo men will each be spending life behind bars after they were found guilty of raping children.

One of the men, a 36-year-old from the Ngwanallela Village was handed a life sentence on Tuesday for attacking a six-year-old girl in 2018.

In the other case, the Mankweng Regional Court slapped two life sentences on a 25-year old from Ga-Dikgale for raping his 12-year-old niece at least twice.

The NPA in Limpopo's spokesperson Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi on Wednesday said: “The NPA welcomes the sentence and hopes that it sends a strong message to all those who continue to take advantage of innocent children.”
