Outrage As Father Rapes 13 Year Old Daughter... Gives Her STI...

A MASVINGO man has been jailed 18 years for raping his mentally ill daughter aged 13 on numerous occasions, infecting her with a s.exually transmitted disease.

A local court heard that the vile abuse forced the minor to hide in the mountains.

The father (name withheld for legal reasons) was convicted by Masvingo magistrate Collect Ncube on Wednesday.

He was initially sentenced to 23 years in prison with hard labour but had five years conditionally suspended.

Passing judgment, magistrate Ncube said the father showed high levels of cruelty on his biological child.

The father denied the charges telling the court that the child was mentally ill, hence she was fabricating the sexual abuse allegations but he failed to substantiate the defence during cross examination.

Prosecutor Mukai Mutumhe proved that the father raped his daughter on several occasions in his bedroom while his wife was away from home.
Court heard that the minor deserted the family home to seek refuge in the mountains where she was rescued by a friend who took her to her own homestead.

The abuse came to light when the minor refused to go back to her parents’ home and revealed the sexual attacks leading the arrest of the father.

A medical report was produced in court and it showed the minor had been sexually abused.
