Sex with daughter man jailed 90 years

A MASVINGO man (39) was sentenced to 90 years in prison for turning his daughter (13) into a sex slave while a man from Bulawayo was yesterday jailed for 15 years after raping, impregnating his daughter (15) and forcing her to abort.

The man from Masvingo who cannot be named to protect the juvenile was convicted on his own plea of guilty to six counts of rape by Chiredzi senior regional magistrate, Mrs Judith Zuyu early this week.

Mrs Zuyu sentenced him to 90 years for the offence before suspending 15 years for five years on condition of good behaviour. In passing sentence, she said the man had demonstrated weird and wicked behaviour by raping his own daughter on several occasions, without remorse.

"You are a wicked man who has bad morals. You betrayed the trust invested in you by your biological daughter.

"You turned your daughter into a sex slave. You deserve sterner sentences that will make you reform if you survive the vagaries of jail life," said Mrs Zuyu.

Prosecutor Mr Edmore Mbavarira said between February and August this year, the man would take advantage of his wife's absence to rape his daughter. He would sexually abuse her every time he assisted her with homework.

"The man would assist his daughter doing Grade Seven at a local school in Zaka. Every time after assisting her, he would force her into intimacy and threaten her with unspecified action if she dared report the abuse to anyone," said Mr Mbavarira.

He said on one occasion he sneaked into the complainant's blankets where was she was sleeping with her two siblings aged four and six years, fondled her breasts and raped her once.

On another occasion the girl entered her father's room to collect her books and without warning he grabbed the girl by the right hand, forced her onto his bed and raped her once.

Mr Mbavarira said in June, the mother again left home for a funeral wake leaving the complainant and her siblings in the custody of her husband. During the night, the man helped the girl with her homework after which he forced her into intimacy. He raped her twice.

All hell broke loose when the girl revealed the abuse to her teacher who reported the matter to the school headmaster leading to the man's arrest.
