A 48-year-old father has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for having sex with his 15-year-old daughter. The man, who cannot be named, committed the offences between December 2016 and 2018, the Harare Magistrates’ Court heard yesterday. The dad has been on anti-retrovirial treatment since since 2013 although his daughter had not been infected by HIV. In handing down ruling, Harare Regional Magistrate Temba Kuwanda said: “The accused person was the biological father and what boggles the mind how he got the guts to abuse his own daughter to such an extent that the issue became the talk of the neighbourhood. The father was sentenced to an effective 11 years after four were suspended.
