15 life terms for rapist

Pretoria News - - NEWS -

A MON­STER lurk­ing in the shad­ows, at­tack­ing, rob­bing and rap­ing girls, was how deputy Judge Pres­i­dent Pa­tri­cia Go­liath de­scribed the modus operandi of Cape Town se­rial rapist Sikhangele Mki in the Western Cape High Court.

“It falls into the cat­e­gory of the most se­ri­ous cases this court has ever dealt with. The crimes were heinous in the ex­treme.”

Go­liath sen­tenced Mki, 34, to 15 life terms and an ad­di­tional 120 years, to run con­cur­rently. Mki pleaded guilty to 84 charges ear­lier this month. Mki com­mit­ted the crimes from 2011 to 2015.
