Cape Town - A Cape Town church leader has pleaded guilty to raping three of his daughters.
The 40-year-old man, who cannot be identified to protect the identity of his victims, was sentenced to 18 years in jail after he entered into a plea agreement at the Wynberg Regional Court last week.
On September 13, the Lotus River father pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault and two of rape, following an investigation by Detective Constable Morne Jackson of the Family Violence and Sexual Offences Unit.
Details of his plea agreement were released on Friday by the National Prosecuting Authority.
Two of his daughters were 11, and one seven years old, when he started abusing them.
