JUBA — A court in Aweil, the capital of South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, has sentenced to death the Sudanese man who raped a 7-year-old child to death.

Saber Abusam, 42, will be hanged until he die after he was found guilty for the rape of the child, Abuk, Lual.

His co-accused, Omar Mohamed, was sentenced to five years in jail after he was found guilty of harboring the criminal without informing the authorities despite having knowledge of the crime.

Abdala has 15 days to appeal. A third Sudanese national who was arrested along with Saber was released for lack of evidence in participating in the crime.

They were arrested on 5 May in Aweil by the police after a public outcry that threatened to speak anti-government sentiments.
