Man rapes own daughter in ritual act

Man rapes own daughter in ritual act. In a very disturbing development, a lustful 40-year-old man from Lower-Gweru allegedly raped his 9-year-old daughter twice. Speaking before the court, he sensationally claimed that he had not committed the crime but alleged that his daughter was raped by goblins he got from a traditional healer.

The alleged offender was arrested and recently appeared in court. The man who cannot be named to protect the identity of the minor revealed that he got the goblins from a sangoma in the form of charms which later transformed into the creatures.

I deny the allegations. It wasn’t me who raped my daughter. I believe it was some charms. They turned into goblins and raped her and she started bleeding profusely. The court heard that on November 23 the suspect allegedly took advantage of his wife’s absence and raped his daughter after asking her to bring water to bath in his bedroom.

The complainant obliged and she brought the water to the accused in his bedroom. Upon entering the bedroom, the accused grabbed the complainant by the waist and he lifted her to the bed and romanced her. The complainant started crying while the accused was silencing her by saying that they were not fighting but just playing before he threatened to kill her if she continued crying.

The suspect then allegedly raped the complainant before ordering her to go and clean herself since she was bleeding. After bathing the accused called the complainant to his bedroom before raping her again. The complaint started bleeding again.

The court heard that when the complainant’s mother returned home, she noticed a change in her behaviour. The woman quizzed her daughter and she opened up leading to the man’s arrest.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs Phathekile Msipa, remanded the suspect in custody to March 20 for the continuation of trial. Mr Kelvin Guvheya prosecuted the case.
