NGO Calls for Life Sentences for Rapists

Women and Men Against Child Abuse calls on government to make sure those found guilty of rape spend the rest of their lives in jail

The Women and Men Against Child Abuse has called on government to make sure those found guilty of rape spend the rest of their lives in jail.

This was after it was revealed that out of 2 852 rape cases reported in Mpumalanga between 2013 and 2015, only 62 people had been convicted for the crimes.

The organisation’s spokesperson, Germaine Vogel, points out that, "Our stand is maximum sentencing for rape. If we are serious about eradicating this scourge, we need to hand out life sentences."
