KZN female magistrate suspended for handing out lenient sentences to rapists
KwaZulu-Natal magistrate Kholeka Bodlani has been suspended for handing out lenient sentences to rapists.
Bodlani made headlines in recent months over her handling of rape cases, with critics calling her judgments severely impaired.
In a recent case, the magistrate imposed only a suspended sentence on a man who had sexually assaulted a six-year-old girl.
