JailSide by side, a father and his son stood waiting to hear their fate in the Johannesburg High Court last Friday

The two “scheming” Alexandra rapists, Booi and Rodgers Makhubela, were sentenced to a combined 26 life terms in prison by Judge Roland Sutherland for raping 10 women between 2008 and 2009 under the pretence that they were taxi drivers.

Booi, 50, was sentenced to 14 life terms, while his son Rodgers, 26, was sentenced to 12 life terms.

When Sutherland started delivering the sentence Booi’s 14-year-old daughter, who had calmly chatted to her father earlier, burst out crying.

She walked out of the courtroom and her wailing could be heard in the corridors until a court orderly went outside to speak to her.

In the courtroom, the two remained stone-faced as Sutherland condemned them to a life behind bars.

As a result of their crimes, Sutherland said, most of their victims’ lives had taken a turn for the worse.

    These dudes are hardened criminals. This is just going to be big family reunion for them. Why do they even keep people like that in our rehabilitation institutions? I say, the whole prison (correctional facility) thing is pointless if these guys get to live. – These guys live, breathe and breed crime. Let’s not put them in with the guys that steal out of hunger and LET’S JUST SURRENDER THESE TWO TO A HIGHER POWER!
