A 27 year old woman,Verona Kennedy has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in the Cape Town Regional Court for human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
This after the court heard evidence from her 14-year- old victim, who testified about her ordeal which started in 2013.
The victim, who was living in George
during the time of her kidnapping, was recruited by Kennedy and sold to a foreign national named Christopher Chichoke.
Hawks spokesperson, Zinzi Hani says Chichoke i s reported to have given her drugs and forced her to work as a sex worker for him.
The victim managed to escape one night and ran to the nearest police station where she registered a criminal case.
Hani says both accused were then arrested in 2015 and later released on bail R5000 and R1000 respectively.
Chichoke has since fled the country and circulated as a wanted person.
