Bloemfontein: The 22 year old Tshiamo Brandly Saila, will be spending the rest of his life behind bars for raping his niece.

About a year ago, the 11 year old girl got tired of being sexually abused by her uncle and found courage to report to him to her trusted teacher. The teacher without hesitation, immediately reported the matter to the police.

On Monday 06 August 2018 a case of rape was opened and investigated by Constable Mamotshidisi Phiri of Mangaung Cluster Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit, who wouldn’t rest until justice was served for the little brave girl and in the process ensured that her uncle does not rape another little girl.

In another case Tom Stock (69), has also been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for raping a mentally retarded girl.

On Wednesday 12 September 2017 the victim, then 13 years old, left home going to school when she met the accused, who took her to his house. Later on the same day, the victim had money and was sharing with her friends.

Upon being questioned where she got the money, she told her mother that the accused had given her the money after he raped her. The rape was reported, the accused was arrested and have been behind bars until recently when he was finally sentenced.
