Moses Sithole would gain access to victims by pretending to be a businessman and offering them work, going so far as to invent a fictional charity organization. Once he had gained their trust, he would offer to walk them through a field to the “business headquarters” until they were out of sight and hearing range; he would then overpower, rape and strangle them. By 1995, he had claimed over 30 victims, igniting a nationwide panic. In some cases, he would call the victim’s family and taunt them.

Sithole has been convicted of 38 counts of murder, 40 counts of rape and 6 robberies. He is currently serving a sentence of 2,410 years in C-Max, the maximum security section of Pretoria Central Prison.
