Man rapes own 9-year old daughter
A man from Matobo has appeared before Bulawayo Regional Magistrate, Mr. Sibonginkosi Mnkandla on allegations of rape of own daughters.
The accused person was remanded in custody to April 26 for trial commencement.
It is alleged that the accused forcefully retrieved his two daughters aged 9 and 7 years from their mother’s place on the 31st of December. He is argued to have claimed that he had New Year presents for them.
The prosecutor, Ms. Concilia Ncube stated that the accused violated his two girls that same night.
Ncube said: “On the same day, during the night the accused person took his children to his bedroom and instructed them to sleep on his bed.”
The accused is alleged to have raped his nine-year-old and rubbed his privates on the thighs of the seven-year-old minor as the children jumped off the bed. He further threatened to kill them with a knife if they ever reported the matter to anyone.
The victims ran away on the 1st of January to narrate their unpleasant story to their grandmother. The matter was reported leading to the arrest of the accused.
