North West police on Thursday said a 24-year-old man was sentenced to 25 years in jail for rape.

Sergeant Kelebogile Moleko said Obakeng Mosito was sentenced at the Mogwase Regional Court on Wednesday for four counts of rape.

“The accused was arrested after he raped victims aged between 20 and 30. In all four cases, he attacked the victims during the night and raped them while wearing a balaclava.”

The offences were committed between 2009 and 2015 in the area of Moruleng.

“One of the victims sustained serious head injury that led her to being semi-paralysed after the accused hit her with a sharp object. At the time of his arrest, two of the victims had passed away. The accused was found guilty on four counts of rape after a thorough investigation by police and subsequent arrest through DNA linkage,” she said.
