Father rapes, infects daugher with HIV

A 52-YEAR-OLD Pumula man has been arraigned before the courts facing allegations of raping his own daughter twice and infecting her with HIV.

The man appeared before Western Commonage provincial magistrate Willard Mafios Moyo on Friday, where he was charged with contravening Section 65 of Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

However, he was remanded in custody to January 30 for continuation of trial.

“I never raped my daughter. My wife and I are currently not in good books, so it is a way of getting back at me,” he said.

The man reportedly raped his 17-year-old daughter on two occasions. On the first count, he allegedly asked his daughter to sweep her brother’s bedroom and he later followed and raped her once.

On the second count, the man approached his daughter as she was sleeping on the floor with her younger brother and asked her to join him in bed and she complied.

On both counts, the juvenile did not report the case to anyone until she visited her mother and told her what was happening.

The mother said that she was disheartened to hear such news and she immediately reported the matter to the police.

“How can someone who knows he is HIV-positive rape his daughter and infect her?” she asked.

“I am so hurt, I wish the justice system will do its best to deal with such inhumanity in our communities.”

Mufaro Mageza prosecuted. – Southerneye
