Durban - A man has been sentenced to 25 years in jail by the Mthunzini Regional Court for raping his 12-year-old niece, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

The 23-year-old man was found guilty on Wednesday for raping the girl several times on different occasions at their home in Gingindlovu, Colonel Jay Naicker said.

He was arrested in September last year when the girl reported the rape to her grandmother.

“We are pleased that we have been able to deliver justice to yet another young victim,” provincial commissioner Lt-Gen Mmamonnye Ngobeni said.
