A South African man who raped over 14 women has been sentenced to 441 years in jail.
According to sources in the country, Violent sexual predator Ndumiso Giyani was arrested in January 2019 after a police manhunt that began when investigators linked him to a string of rapes and robberies committed between 2014 and 2018.
Police officials welcomed the sentence which they felt was appropriate for the egregious crimes which Giyani was convicted of in November 2019.
After his four year reign of terror and subsequent arrest, he was found guilty in the Kimberley High Court on more than 30 charges, including 14 counts of rape late last year.
Arresting officers Lieutenant Colonel Marli Strydom and Sergeant Aaron Gumede have been commended for their work which led to the arrest and conviction of a dangerous sexual predator.
Judge Mathebe Phatshoane’s chief concern in handing down the sentence was ensuring that Giyani be prevented from visiting further harm to the community.
