The Ntuzuma regional court on Tuesday sentenced a 35-year-old man to life imprisonment for the repeated rape of his daughter in Newlands West, KwaZulu-Natal.
The child was nine when the rape began in March 2020. Her father was out on parole for a previous rape conviction at the time.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Ramkisson-Kara said the rape happened over three months, whenever they were alone at home.
The matter came to light when the girl told her grandmother about what her father was doing. The man handed himself over to the police but denied the allegations.
