22 Sep 2017, Cape Town: Western Cape: Two Serial Rapists receive heavy sentences in Cape High Court. The victims of two serial rapists who perpetrated their crimes in the Milnerton and Kraaifontein areas of Cape Town, breathed a sigh of relief when Ayanda Noziweni(31) & Masixole Mpevu(27) were both sentenced to life imprisonment in the Western Cape High Court.
Noziweni was arrested in July 2016 after he had raped and kidnapped his victims during 2011 and 2014 in Kraaifontein.
Besides a life sentence, he also received 15 years for robbery with aggravating circumstances, and 15 years for assault with the intent to inflict grievous bodily harm.
All the sentences will run concurrently. Besides a life sentence, Mpevu, who repeatedly raped three women during 2015 and 2016 in Joe Slovo near Milnerton, also received 15 years for crimes ranging from attempted aggravated robbery and kidnapping to assault with the intent to inflict grievous bodily harm.
Meanwhile, another serial rapist, Aviwe Hopa, will appear in the same court today for a pre-trial, facing charges of sexually assaulting four young girls in Khayelitsha.
The SAPS top management expressed their appreciation to all the investigators and other police members, who worked tirelessly on these cases and succeeded in removing these criminals from the streets of our communities.
