A Zimbabwean man who kidnapped women in the streets of Pretoria and kept them at gunpoint while repeatedly raping them, will be sentenced in the High Court in Pretoria today.
Morris Shungu, 31, was in August last year convicted on 16 charges of rape, robbery with aggravating circumstances, kidnapping, sexual assault and being an illegal immigrant after pleading guilty to the charges.
He admitted that between September 2015 and February 2016 he kidnapped and raped five women after accosting them on the street early in the morning and forcing them to accompany him to deserted places.
All of his victims, who were on their way to work or school, were held at gunpoint and some were raped up to nine times during the course of a day. One victim was choked and throttled and Shungu threatened to kill her. Another was forced to undress before Shungu washed her body and panties in
