Mafeteng - Motlatsi Mafeto, 30, of Boleka, Manyareleng was slapped with a 10-year imprisonment without an option of a fine after he was found guilty of an sexual offence by the Mafeteng Magistrate Court.

The court found that on November 21, 2016, Mafeto raped a 35-year old disabled woman of the same village.

Pleading for a lighter sentence Mafeto told the court that the sexual act was consensual.

In judgment, Magistrate Bokang Makhaketso said the convict has done a cruel thing and that the sentence would serve as a deterrent to others who are thinking of engaging in criminal activities of this nature.
