Sentencing of the 51-year-old Randfontein man, who was convicted of raping two of his step daughters, was on Thursday postponed at the Johannesburg High Court.
The man was found guilty in February of raping and indecently assaulting two of his stepdaughters. He cannot be named to protect the identity of his stepdaughters.
Hundreds of community members‚ the ANC Women’s League‚ law enforcement officers and officials from the Gauteng department of community safety gathered outside the Johannesburg Prison in Naturena.
Marchers passed the Southgate Mall taxi rank‚ where MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane interacted with taxi drivers and commuters.
At his previous appearance, state prosecutor Rolene Bester told the court that life imprisonment was a suitable sentence for the crimes the 51-year-old had committed. She told the court that one of the daughters said that she felt that boys would take advantage of her because of what her step father did to her.
