A Free State serial rapist who loved shaving off pubic hair from his victims has been sentenced to 120 years in jail by a Virginia circuit court judge.

Ndoyisiwe Paulos Notito's method was always the same - he posed as a prophet and promised his victims to heal all their ailments.

By the time he was caught he had raped seven women and stolen their personal belongings.

Notito would tell his victims they were bewitched and that he would have to remove hair from their heads, pubic area and armpits to cure them .

Most of the rapes took place at secluded areas such as parks, the veld and abandoned buildings.

Judge Faan Hancke sentenced him to a lengthy jail term for his rape spree that lasted two years. He was convicted on seven counts of rape, eight of theft and two of indecent assault on Wednesday.

Notito's defence lawyer Kenneth Pretorius pleaded with Hancke for a lenient sentence but his plea fell on deaf ears.

State prosecutor Lucky Bontes asked the court for a lengthy sentence. Bontes said: "The offences were of a serious nature and were pre-meditated. Women are still unsafe. You showed them no respect because you tricked and raped them."

Hancke said: "You violated their rights. You brought trauma into their lives. You even went as far as stealing their belongings while raping them."

The judge said Notito would have to serve 28 years before he was eligible for parole.
