Eastern Cape Man gets life sentence for raping a 17-year-old disabled girl

Mother of disabled 12 year old arrested for child neglect

 A Macleantown man was sentenced to life in prison for raping a severely disabled 17-year-old girl, who is unable to talk in May 2018. The accused is known to the victim as he frequently visited her uncle.

Investigators were able to link Zamuxolo Grey (37) to the crime. Grey was given the maximum life sentence in the Grahamstown High court on Friday, 2 August 2019, after being convicted on the same day for raping the teen in her home.

The investigating officer, Warrant Officer Sizeka Mangesi of Mdantsane Family Violence Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit presented a thorough investigated docket in court that resulted in the hefty sentence by judge Bloem of Grahamstown High Court.

Mdantsane cluster commander, Major General Henry Vos welcomed the sentencing. “Crimes against women and children remain the priority of the South African Police Service (SAPS). We would like to urge members of the community to constantly monitor people with disability so as to minimise the chances of their vulnerability to crime,” he said.
