DescriptionThe Kannaland municipal council on Tuesday re-elected a convicted rapist as its mayor, and a convicted fraudster as his deputy, with the support of the ANC.

The council elected ICOSA leader Jeffrey Donson, who was convicted of statutory rape and indecent assault while he was Kannaland mayor in 2008, as mayor.

He raped a 15-year-old in 2004. He was initially sentenced to five years in prison.

He appealed to the Western Cape High Court.

While his conviction wasn't overturned, his sentence was reduced by Judge Lee Bozalek to a wholly suspended term of imprisonment, correctional supervision, a R20 000 fine and a rehabilitation programme for sex offenders.
