KwaZulu-Natal serial rapist, Phumlani Sbonelo Dludla(24), has been sentenced to life imprisonment for his reign of terror. Appearing before the Eshowe Regional Court on Monday, was also slapped with a total of 30 years for three other counts of rape.
He terrorized the community of Eshowe and Kombe between 2010 and 2014. The state prosecution reported the accused would break into houses of the victims before violating them. KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni, welcomed the sentence saying it would deter other culprits.
“This shows that there is no place to hide for criminals and police will continue to work harder to fight crimes against women and children in the province,” Ngobeni said.
