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.

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."
