Two Eastern Cape men have been jailed for a total of 120 years for a string of charges including rape.

Police spokesperson, Captain Jackson Manatha, said 24-year-old Azukisile Sidondi and 26-year-old Thulani Makuhlwa, were each sentenced in the Butterworth Regional Court on Thursday to 60 years behind bars.

He said the men were also found guilty on charges of house-breaking and robbery with aggravating circumstances related to an attack on three women in a village near Dutywa in 2016.

Butterworth Cluster Commander, Brigadier Ngangema Xakavu, has praised the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit for securing the conviction and sentences.
