On Friday, the 46-year-old man who raped his 10-year-old stepdaughter close to 1,000 times over five years was sentenced to nine life terms in the Durban high court.

173 years were further given to the Verulam man as a prison sentence after being found guilty of 56 counts relating to rape, human trafficking, s.e.xual grooming, s.e.xual abuse and distribution of child p0rn0graphy.

A publication stated that the man, an auto electrician by trade who cannot be identified to protect the identity of the child, had also laced his fingers on purpose with acid to burn off his fingerprints in an apparent attempt to prevent him being linked to other crimes.

The man was arrested in June 2018 at his home in Verulam, north of Durban, after the child opened up to a neighbour about the alleged abuses.

When the man returned home, the neighbour had rallied a group of women who confronted then him.

At this house, the 10-year-old girl was held captive and raped by her stepfather in Verulam, north of Durban.

Private security company Reaction Unit SA (Rusa) spokesperson Prem Balram said they were called in for help after a group of residents had found out about horrifying videos of the rapes on the man’s mobile phone.

“His mobile phone was confiscated and several video recordings of rape were found. Recordings of other men and woman engaged in s.e.xual activity with the child were also found on the memory card. Pictures of the accused using woman’s lingerie were also discovered on the phone.”
