Man rapes daughter (12), blames it on evil spirit
A 35-YEAR-OLD man from Hatcliffe has blamed evil spirits for leading him into his 12-year-old daughter’s bedroom and raping her in her sleep.
The incident which occurred two years ago only came out this year after the parents engaged in a fight.
The court heard that in February 2018 the father had a misunderstanding with the girl’s mother over food; he allegedly bashed and chased her away.
He allegedly threatened her with death if she told anyone of the incident.
The court heard that the girl later had an affair with another man which was not good news to the father who reported against the man alleging that they had had sexual intercourse.
Prosecutor Panganai Chiutsi is appearing for the State.
