Fracas as 20-year-old man rɑpes and impregnɑtes 13-year-old sister


Tragic Case Unveiled: Harare man, 20, appears in court for allegedly impregnɑting 13-year-old sister

In a distressing turn of events, a 20-year-old man from Ushewokunze in Harare stood before the court yesterday, facing charges of rɑping his 13-year-old sister, which resulted in her pregnɑncy.

The accused, whose identity is being withheld to protect the victim’s privacy, appeared before Harare regional magistrate Mrs Feresi Chakanyuka to answer the charge of rɑpe. The court remanded him in custody until January 12, when the trial proceedings will begin.

According to the prosecution led by Mr Anesu Chirenje, the alleged incident took place in April of this year. On that fateful morning, around 7 am, the parents of the complainant left home for work as usual. While the young girl was diligently sweeping the kitchen, her brother, who had been asleep in his bedroom, called her repeatedly, beckoning her to come to him.

Initially hesitant, the complainant eventually decided to heed her brother’s persistent calls and proceeded to his room. However, on her way there, she encountered him in the dining room. Without warning, he forcefully grabbed her, covered her mouth to stifle any potential outcry, and forcefully dragged her into his bedroom, where he allegedly rɑped her.

Following the disturbing act, the accused reportedly issued a menacing threat to his sister, warning her of dire consequences should she ever disclose the incident to anyone.

Tragically, the shocking truth only came to light on November 22 when the complainant’s mother discovered her daughter’s pregnɑncy. Deeply disturbed by this revelation, the mother engaged in a heartfelt conversation with her daughter, urging her to reveal the truth. It was then that the young girl bravely disclosed the heinous violation she had endured.

Appalled by the horrifying revelation, the parents wasted no time in reporting the matter to the police, leading to the prompt arrest of the accused individual.
