Rustenburg – A serial rapist’s spree finally came to an end when the Bafokeng Regional Court sentenced him on Friday 6 July to two life imprisonment sentences and an additional 206 years behind bars.

Ayabonga Ndai’s crimes ranged from attempted rape, rape, house robbery, business robbery, armed robbery and burglary and were committed between August 2010 and July 2013 in the policing areas of Rustenburg and Boitekong.

“In one of the incidents, the accused was sentenced to life and 15 years’ imprisonment after he robbed and raped a 38-year old woman in Photsaneng outside Rustenburg in 2012. It was reported during the court proceedings that the victim was walking alone to work in the early hours of the morning when the accused confronted and threatened her with a knife. The accused robbed her of her cell phone and cash before taking her to one of the yards in the village where he repeatedly raped her,” said police spokesperson captain Aafje Botma.

Ayabonga’s modus operandi was to monitor and target certain dwellings, where men often left their spouses alone to go to work. He would then force entry into those houses and rape the women before robbing them.
