Mudzi, February 09: A 49 year old Zimbabwean man raped his daughter as punishment for not wearing her dress properly.

A 49 year old Zimbabwean man who cannot be named in order to protect the identity of the victim, who is still a minor, appeared before a local

magistrate in Mudzi District facing charges of raping his 12 year old daughter.

The man was staying alone with his three children, all girls as his wife had left accusing him of being irresponsible. The one he raped is the oldest of the three.

Prosecuting for the state, Ms Mary Changadzo told the court that on the night of February 24, the accused dragged his 12 year old daughter into his bedroom hut and raped her once. After that he told her that he had done that as punishment for not always putting her underwear.

“The accused dragged the complainant into his bedroom and raped her once and warned her not to tell anyone as this was a punishment for not wearing her underwear.”

The man is also said to have warned his daughter that if she does not change her behavior he will ‘punish’ her again. He warned her against telling other people about the punishment saying people will be jealous and report him to the police.

However, the matter came to light when the young girl shared her ordeal with a friend who in turn told her mother, who immediately

reported the matter to members of the police special constabulary leading to the man’s arrest.

In court, the man pleaded guilty and asked the court to be lenient on him since he committed the crime under a spell from evil spirits. He

told the court that his daughter was in the habit of not wearing her underwear and caused problems to him since he is a man living a bachelor’s life without his wife.

The man was remanded in custody for sentencing on the 08th of Feb.
