The Herald reports that a 40 year-old Gutu man allegedly raped his teenage daughter as punishment for being obsessed with young boys.
It is allegedly raped his 15 year-old daughter after summoning her to his bedroom to reprimand her for showing interest in and having affairs with boys.
The man allegedly called the complainant into his bedroom hut from the kitchen where she was and strongly reprimanded her for showing interest in boys.
He then allegedly ordered the complainant to remove her pants but she declined.
The accused then allegedly sweet-talked the complainant to remove her clothes, reportedly promising not to harm her.
The state alleges that the complainant then agreed and removed all her clothes to which the accused tripped her to the ground and raped her once before threatening strong and unspecified action if she ever reported the matter to anyone.
The suspect has since appeared before a Gutu magistrates’ court facing one count of rape.
Gutu resident magistrate Mr Nyasha Vhitorini, last Friday, remanded the man in custody to May 17 this year.
Some men do not believe that a woman means “no” when she says “no”, and in their sick minds feel entitled to continue to pressure a woman, and ultimately coerce or force her into sex, but for a father to rape his own flesh and blood… now that’s an act that deserves the heaviest sentence the courts can give.
