The High Court in Pretoria handed down 8 life sentences AND 195 years of jail time for Mothesele. Collectively, that would add up to almost 400 years behind bars.
36-year-old Tshitso Mothesele is a serial rapist from Khutsong. Between 2017 and 2018, he raped 16 females around the Carletonville area. Six of his victims were minors. This week, Mothesele was sentenced. He will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
The NPA has revealed that Mothesele always used the same tactics when carrying out the rapes. He would target the women and girls as they got off public transport.
He then dragged them into a field, and would rape them before making off with all of their belongings.
Aside from being a convicted serial rapist and placed on the sex offenders registry, Mothesele was also found guilty of 8 counts of robbery and kidnapping.
He was arrested in December 2018 after police were able to track one of his victim’s cellphones. Mothesele had sold the phone after stealing it from the victim.
