A man in Chiroveka village under Chief Chireya has become a talking point in the community after he impre_gnated his stepdaughter.
The odd incident came to light recently when a neighbour confided to Ratidzo Moyo (45) that her daughter Rudo Muchemwa (20) was pre_gnant. Ratidzo got worried and asked her daughter about the said pre_gnancy.
Rudo spilled the beans revealing that she was impre_gnated by her stepfather, Ruramai Moyo (50). More shock awaited Ratidzo. Her husband never denied responsibility for the pre_gnancy.
A family insider said: "Ruramai admitted before family elders that he impre_gnated his stepdaughter saying they engaged in mutual se_xual inter_course."
The matter was reported to village head Matsikirwa before it was referred to Chief Chireya. Chireya confirmed the incident.
"We handled a matter where a man committed an abomination by falling in love with his stepdaughter and impre_gnated her. What shocked me is that the man did not deny that he impre_gnated his stepdaughter. He said they engaged in mutual se_xual inter_course," said Chief Chireya.
"We cannot condone such acts that degrade our cultural values and tradition. As a way of correcting that we found, Ruramai Moyo, guilty and fined him two cows. Let me hasten to warn would- be offenders that we will expel them from our community if they commit such shameful acts," he said.
