45 year old Sraj Umar Banda from Zambia was hailed as a fantastic multicultural venture by the state-owned mining company LKAB – but at the same time he committed hundreds of systematic abuses of his daughters which consisted of oral, vagi_nal and an_al rap_es that began when the daughters were eleven and twelve years old.
One of the daughters was forced to have two ab0rtions after she became preg_nant.
Banda has now been sentenced to a maximum of 14 years in prison.
The extremely serious and extensive crimes were discovered at the beginning of the year when one of the girls, now in her late teens, started telling friends and then the social services about the abuse she and her sister had been subjected to for several years.
The perpetrator in question is their father, the 45-year-old immigrant Sraj Umar Banda who moved to Sweden from Zambia because he was granted state money to do a doctorate in rock mechanics at Luleå University of Technology.
He then came to work for the state mining company LKAB in Svappavaara, where he was hailed as a fantastic multicultural venture.
But even when he was arrested, he could admit in the first interrogations that he had rap_ed the two sisters since they were eleven and twelve years old and that there were so many rap_es that he could not even state a clear number himself.
“I’m not here to save my own skin, but I admit the damage I caused,” he said in the first police interrogation.
Now the incestuous child rap_ist has been sentenced to the highest possible punishment for the systematic rap_es of his own daughters.
Hundreds of brutal rap_es – one of the girls was forced into two ab0rtions.
The abuse lasted between 2013 and until this spring.
For one girl, it is from the time she was 11 until she was 14 years old and according to Banda herself has touched “almost 100 interc0urses”.
The other girl was exposed when she was twelve years old and several years ahead and, according to Banda, was about “well over 100 interc0urses”.
Estimates that according to the girls themselves are the tip of the iceberg of rap_es that have occurred several times a week.
According to one of the girls, she remembered how the first rap_e took place:
“He was nak_ed and I was scared, he closed the door and closed it again so no one would see. I tried to stop him, I shouted at him, kind of stop. I knew what [he] was going to do. He took Vaseline on my vagina and on his penis. It hurt and blood came.”
But Banda not only contented himself with rap_ing one of the girls but also started rap_ing her sister.
Sometimes he forced himself on both of them at the same time as they lay next to each other in one of the beds in the home.
He also took pictures and filmed his rap_es and assaults – materials that became important evidence in the trial.
