Harsh sentence for Sikhangele Mki

Ensure that Sikhangele Mki, who was found guilty of 85 charges, including 30 rapes, is given the harshest sentence for his crimes against society.

Why is this important?

"The convicted serial rapist carried out a reign of terror in Delft and Khayelitsha. He says his modus operandi would be to follow his victims and grab them and threaten them at knife point. He would hold the knives against their necks and demand money and their cellphones. He says he would take his victims to an isolated place and then rape them. [1]"

South Africa is engulfed with incidences of abuse against women and children. While a harsh sentence won't undo the psychological and physical trauma of his crimes, it will surly send a strong message to other perpetrators that such behavior is not welcome.

Please join the protest action outside the court on 5 September 2017.
