19 October 1995
The South African Police in Pretoria announced the arrest of Moses Sithole, named the country's most wanted man at the time. Sithole, thirty-one years of age at the time, was arrested in connection with the murders of at least thirty-seven women and one child, and the rape of forty women in Gauteng during the previous eighteen months. He was wounded during his arrest and was kept in hospital under police guard. His crimes came to light after the discovery of the remains of fifteen women buried on a hillside in Cleveland, east of Johannesburg in June 1994. Sithole was subsequently sentenced to 2410 years in prison.
