CAPE TOWN - Convicted Cape Town serial rapist Sikhangele Mki was on Thursday handed 15 life sentences and 120 years behind bars.

He was convicted for 84 crimes, including 30 counts of rape and 27 of kidnapping.

The 34-year-old raped 30 women, aged between 11 and 28. He also kidnapped, assaulted and robbed several other women.

Deputy Judge President Patricia Goliath described him as a monster who terrorised his community over a four-year period.

“The carelessness, cruelty and brutality of the attacks place this matter into the category of the most serious cases this court has ever dealt with,” Goliath added.

“The accused is a serial rapist. He has no respect for the bodily and personal integrity of women.”
