JOHANNESBURG - Nicholas Ninow has been found guilty of rape, the possession of drugs and defeating the ends of justice.
Judgment was handed down at the North Gauteng High Court on Monday.
Dros child rapist Nicholas Ninow in court on 11 September 2019, where his 8-year-old victim testified about how he followed her to the restaurant's toilets.
Ninow pleaded guilty to raping a seven-year-old girl in the toilets of the Silverton Dros restaurant.
The court chose to continue with the case, as there were some discrepancies between Ninow's version of events and information provided by the child.
Last week, the girl, who is now 8 years old, testified via CCTV. Her mother also gave evidence.

She testified that Ninow followed her to the bathroom where he raped her.
This contradicted Ninow's statement in his plea explanation where he said the child found him in the bathroom.
