FREE STATE – Accused, Sebuti Dintwe (20) was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment by Bultfontein Regional Court.
On the 28 September 2019 at about 21:00 a 21-year-old girl decided to go to one of the taverns in Phahameng to look for his brother. Realizing that her brother left the tavern already she decided to buy herself some drinks. Before she could even sit, an unknown man pulled her from behind and requested to talk to her but she refused.
The man dragged her outside the tavern and took her to a certain shack where he raped her. He again dragged her to another shack where he raped her for the second time and left.
The matter was reported to the police and the case assigned to Detective Constable Lerato Mokupi of Lejweleputswa District Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit. She worked around the clock to ensure that the perpetrator was arrested.
Constable Lerato’s sterling investigation and relentless efforts ensured that justice is served for a 21 year-old victim and the perpetrator ended in jail where he belongs and will never abuse women again.
