Evil Zim Father Jailed In SA For Rªping Daughters, Selling Another To Neighbour

A Zimbabwean man who had rªped his two daughters, caused one of them to become pregnant, and then sold her to a neighbour received a double life sentence in South Africa.

The man pleaded guilty, but Gqeberha regional court magistrate Busiwe Mnyani did not let that influence her decision to sentence him to the minimum term allowed for rªping a minor.

Handing down the judgement, Mnyani said the man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his daughters, had pleaded guilty not because he regretted his actions but because he had no other course of action.

She said she was left with no option but to hand down two life sentences given the seriousness of the offences and the fact that the 40-year-old Zimbabwean abused his position of power and destroyed the trusting relationship between himself and his daughters.

The man admitted to two counts of rªpe. He also admitted that between March 2020 and March 2021, he had rªped his daughters, aged 13 and 15 at the time, countless times at their home in Zwide.

The court heard that the man took advantage of his wife’s absence and rªped the minors. His wife had travelled to Zimbabwe when he started rªping his own daughters. She was unable to return until April 2021 due to the Covid-19 lockdowns.

The woman made arrangements to return to South Africa upon being informed of the heinous crimes her husband had committed. As if rªping his daughter was not evil enough, the man sold his eldest to a neighbour after learning she had fallen pregnant.

However, upon learning she was already pregnant, the neighbour sent her back to her father from Free State. The matter was reported to law enforcement, and the daughter was taken to a hospital where she had an abortion.

A DNA test performed on the fetus confirmed that the girl’s father was also the father of her child. The man had told his daughter that it was part of their culture for him to have intercourse with her. The court heard he had also instructed his friend and neighbour to rªpe his daughter, telling him he was free to do whatever he wanted with her.
