A man was on Monday sentenced to 20 years in prison by the Greytown Regional Court for raping his aunt, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Major Thulani Zwane said the man, 38, raped his aunt, 70, at her house in Emalomeni, Msinga, in August 2014.

“He fell asleep after the incident and the victim managed to escape, and reported the matter to her neighbours.”

He was arrested while sleeping.

The Greytown Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit took over the investigation.
