A 28-year-old soccer coach from Gqeberha was sentenced to five years in prison for sexually abusing four children between 2017 and 2018.
Sizwe'Lali' Mphini was sentenced in the Port Elizabeth Regional Court on Thursday. According to the National Prosecuting Authority, Mphini saw young boys playing soccer in an open location in Gqeberha in 2016. (NPA). He asked if they had a soccer coach, to which they replied that they did not.
He volunteered to coach them and promised to buy soccer shirts for them. The children were overjoyed, and they eagerly accepted his invitation to join the "Mighty Eagles" team. "Mphini, on the other hand, said in court that he never bought soccer jerseys for the kids.
He licked their private parts instead "According to Anelisa Ngcakani, a regional spokeswoman for the NPA. Ngcakani stated he would fetch the guys one by one during practice time to play with their private parts. Mphini would invite the guys over to his house for lunch and cartoons.
He'd call each of the boys into his room, where he'd play with their private parts one by one. He also warned the kids not to inform anybody about the sexual assault. "The four guys testified that their private parts would be unpleasant and swollen," Ngcakani added.
They stated they were afraid to tell their parents at first. According to the court, Mphini reportedly abused more youngsters than the four who came forward. The other males were said to be afraid to report the crimes. Rumors about Mphini began to swirl, according to the NPA, and it all came to a head when one parent spotted her kid, together with other young boys, at Mphini's home.
She confronted her 10-year-old son, who admitted to the sexual assault and said Mphini had done it to other boys. When additional lads came forward, the neighborhood held a meeting and reported the incident to the Walmer police station.
The court convicted Mphini guilty of four counts of sexual assault. He was sentenced to five years in prison for each crime. Ngcakani said, "The sentences were set to run consecutively, meaning he would be imprisoned for five years."
The youngest of his victims was eight years old, and the oldest was fourteen years old when he committed the murders.
