Johannesburg - South African Police Services on Tuesday have appealed to members of the public to help them find a man who can help detectives in their investigation into a serial rapist operating in the Gauteng and Mpumalanga provinces.

Mandla Sibusiso Masango absconded while out on bail on a matter before the Hazyview Magistrate's Court in 2013.

Police believe Masango can help officers with probes into rapes committed by a suspect between 2014 and 2016. 

The rape cases were reported in Mamelodi, Rietgat, and Loate in Gauteng, and in Hazyview, White River, Calcutta and Lulekani in Mpumalanga.
