A man who broke into a school and raped a woman has been jailed for 28 years in the Virginia Supreme Court.

Tshidiso Samuel Seboholi, 31, pleaded guilty to those charges, as well as a charge of breaking into a house in Nyaskallong near Allanridge nearly six months later and raping a woman there as well.

After being arrested for an unrelated crime, his DNA profile was positively linked to a sample taken at the school.

In his plea, he says that he was addicted to drugs at the time of the rape and that his income of R150 a day as a gardener was not enough to pay for the drugs. Then he started breaking in and robbing people to get money for drugs.

He says when the police catch his mate who broke in with him, he is prepared to testify against him.

In the burglary on the night of August 24, 2018, they robbed three cellphones worth R15 199. He and his partner were armed with knives.

In the burglary on the evening of February 10, 2019, he and his partner stole two laptops, a tablet and two R28 000 cellphones. They were then armed with a knife and a screwdriver.

Judge Abe Mathebula ratified a sentencing agreement concluded by Seboholi with the state. He was sentenced to 36 years in prison, of which certain sentences are served concurrently. He will therefore effectively have to serve 28 years in prison.
