The court has heard how, between 2016 and 2019, Matshaya would wait in an open veld where he targeted women and girls walking alone. He would accost them, threaten them with a firearm or a knife and drag them into the bush before raping them. The case has been postponed to Monday for a pre-sentencing report.
