Written by on December 11, 2020

Member of parliament for Mochudi West, Mmusi Kgafela says men convicted of rape should be sentenced to life in prison.

Kgafela said harsh sentences could be used as a deterrent to Gender based violence perpetrators.

The MP says some countries within the SADC bloc, are dishing out similar sentences and Botswana should also follow suite as a way of curbing the rising incidents of GBV in the country.
