Mokopane - A man accused of raping three teenage girls while they were walking to school last year will appear in the Mokopane Regional Court on Monday, Limpopo police said.

Brigadier Hangwane Mulaudzi said the 35-year-old man raped the girls, who were from the same high school, while they were walking on a long stretch of road in the Capricorn municipality in November and December.

“But after the attacks, we intensified patrol vehicles on that particular road so the schoolchildren and others are safer,” he said. - Sapa
