#Sentencing KWAZULU-NATAL - On 11 January 2020 a 36-year-old woman travelled from Kranskop to consult with a traditional healer in Greytown.
The victim met with the traditional healer Nhlanhla Mabaso (36) outside a local supermarket at Sargeant Street in Greytown.
Mabaso informed her that the medication
was at his home and they should proceed to Lindelani informal Settlement in Greytown.
The victim trusted the traditional healer and followed him.
On arrival at his residence, the traditional healer became aggressive and locked the victim in the house before he raped her.
He threated to harm her if she made any noise.

The docket was transferred to Greytown
Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Units for further investigation.
