Zimbabwean Man Who Raped 3 Children In South Africa Gets 3 Life Terms

A Zimbabwean man who pretended to be a “Good Samaritan” and raped three children aged 8, 9, and 11 in Limpopo Province, South Africa, has been sentenced to three life terms.

According to TimesLive, Tinos Chimeze (33) pleaded not guilty at the Modimolle magistrate’s court of the rapes committed in 2022.

He claimed the victims came to his house to view his woodwork and that he even offered them food.

However, National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi on Tuesday said that Chimeze lured the children to his place and offered them soft drinks and food. Said Malabi-Dzhangi:

The evidence revealed that the accused had been luring the victims to his place in 2022, offering them soft drinks and food. He then proceeded to rape the victims in his house in the presence of the other victims.

The rapes came to light when a social worker who interviewed the victims alerted the police. Said Malabi-Dzhangi:

The accused had taken the three victims to a social worker alleging that he was taking care of them and that they needed food. Medical evidence confirmed that the victims were indeed sexually abused.

Some South Africans often blame foreigners for the high crime rate in that country and this often results in xenophobic attacks.

However, reports suggest that statistically, there is no relationship between international migration in South Africa and crime.

Evidence shows that most foreign-born nationals do not commit crimes, nor are they responsible for most crimes in South Africa.
