Child rapist protest 34 year jail sentence


A child rapist who bagged a 34-year jail sentence in 2014 on Thursday asked a Western Cape High Court to overturn the conviction, as well as the sentence.
The Prisoner, Enoch Lufuthane, was found guilty by Judge Siraj Desai on seven counts - three of rape, three of abduction and one of kidnapping charge, but acquitted on three counts of attempted murder.
Lefuthane was also acquitted of a further four charges involving one of the boys - one of abduction and three of indecent assault.
Lefuthane initially faced 15 charges for terrorising boys between 2005 and 2012 in the Eastern Cape, as well as Stellenbosch. The incidents were alleged to have involved five boys who at the time were between the ages of 6 and 10 years old. 
He was arrested in 2012 and pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him.
