A 53-year-old man was jailed for eight years by the Mahikeng Regional Court on Monday for raping a woman, North West police said.

The man raped a 50-year-old woman in Itsoseng Township, near Lichtenburg, in 2011, said Captain Pelonomi Makau.

The man learned that the woman was a dressmaker and asked her to accompany him to his house to stitch his trousers. When they got there, he raped her.
