CAPE TOWN — A man who raped a child more than 10 years ago has been sentenced to life in prison.

Mdantsane Regional Court in the Eastern Cape convicted Phakamile Coko after finding him guilty of two counts of raping a 10-year-old child in 2010.

He knew the child’s family.

The National Prosecuting Authority said the victim did not report the crimes because Coko threatened her.

She didn’t report the matter until 2020.

At trial, the 54-year-old pleaded not guilty.
