Johannes Nokeri, who raped and robbed residents of Hammanksraal in northern Tshwane, was on Friday handed 191 years in the high court sitting in the Temba Magistrate’s Court.

The NPA said between 2012 and 2017, the remorseless Nokeri committed a series of rapes, robberies, and theft in areas around Hammanskraal and Temba township. He faced 18 counts of rape, 23 counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances, theft of a motor vehicle, and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.

“He mostly targeted unsuspecting women who would be travelling from taverns at night and rob their money, cellphone and clothing items before raping some of them. One of the victims was 5 months pregnant when she was repeatedly raped by Nokeri,” said NPA spokesperson Henry Mamothame.

Nokeri has two previous convictions of two charges of rape and one of robbery. He was sentenced to ten years and served three. Mamothame said Nokeri was previously provided with three attorneys from Legal Aid and one private attorney sourced by Legal Aid, but he fired them and opted to represent himself.
