Durban - An Empangeni man has been handed a 20-year prison sentence for raping a teenager in 2012, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

“The ruthless and barbaric attack of children by criminals... will not be tolerated in our society and we welcome the maximum sentence meted out by the court,” provincial police commissioner Lt-Gen Mmamonnye Ngobeni said.

“The sentence is preceded by intensive and diligent investigation by our adequately capable officers.”

Skhosiphi Shange, 51, appeared in the Empangeni Regional Court on Tuesday for sentencing.

He was convicted of raping a 14-year-old girl in 2012. He had asked her to accompany him to the shop and while walking there, she was forced into a bush and raped.

Shange gave her R20 and told her not to tell anyone.

The girl told the teachers and her mother about the incident and a case was opened with police.

The man was arrested, and later found guilty. - Sapa
