The 30-year-old Angelo Mulambo from Mozambique appeared in the Pretoria High Court on Monday after being arrested in September of 2017.


 National Prosecution Authority (NPA) spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana says Mulambo has been convicted of human trafficking, rape, kidnapping and assisting a person to be in the country illegally.



In 2017, when the then 14-year old was on her way to school a neighbor took her to the Mulambo family home on the pretence that she was getting a babysitting job.


However, on arrival she was told that she is Mulambo’s second wife.


She was taken to his room where she stayed and shared a bed with him.

“A few days later, Mulambo brought her to South Africa from Mozambique illegally and they stayed in a shack in Mamelodi East together with his first wife.


“There she shared a bed with Mulambo and his first wife and was exposed to sexual acts between the couple.  


“Mulambo raped her twice, including anally, on both occasions.”


“In the early hours of the morning of 07 September 2017, the victim managed to escape to the neighbour’s house where she reported her ordeal,” says Mahanjana.
