Rapist and murderer Johannes Kana was denied leave to appeal his conviction by the Western Cape High Court, the NPA said.

Cape Town - Rapist and murderer Johannes Kana was denied leave to appeal his conviction by the Western Cape High Court on Friday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Provincial NPA spokesman Eric Ntabazalila said Judge Patricia Goliath ruled there was no prospect that another court would come to a different conclusion.

Last month, Kana was given two life sentences for crimes against Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen.

Booysen was raped and disembowelled, and died in Tygerberg Hospital, Cape Town, on the afternoon of Saturday, February 2.

Kana had applied for leave to appeal his sentence.

“We are pleased with this decision as we opposed the appeal. We hope Mr Kana will now move on and start his life sentence imprisonment,” Ntabazalila said. - Sapa
