FRANCISTOWN: The High Court has upheld the 11-year sentenced slapped on Archibald Kgano for rape and threat to kill, both committed in Selebi Phikwe in 2011.

Justice Phadi Solomon ruled yesterday that the magistrate who sentenced Kgano was entitled to impose the sentence because the appellant was violent to his victim in the rape case.

The appellant was sentenced to 11 years for rape and a two-year suspended sentence for the threat to kill.
