THREE men were given life sen­tences for rap­ing a 45­year­old woman in Plessis­laer in 2015.

The Pi­eter­mar­itzburg Re­gional Court yes­ter­day con­victed and sen­tenced the three ac­cused, Mduduzi Sha­bal­ala (29), Simphiwe Ngubane (33) and Mlungisi Kunene (35) for the in­ci­dent.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred in June 2015, when the vic­tim was re­turn­ing home from a party when the three men grabbed her and as­saulted her.

They forced her to go into a nearby house and raped her.

The Fam­ily Vi­o­lence, Child Pro­tec­tion and Sex­ual Of­fences Unit at Plessis­laer sta­tion had in­ves­ti­gated the case.
