A man has been sentenced to 30 years in jail for raping his disabled teenage daughter. He claimed that the act would make him wealth. He had raped her three times between December and January this year. He said that his daughter had seduced him and consented to the act. He later changed that he had raped her on the instructions of a sangoma so that he could make money. He threatened to unleash hyenas on the girl if she told anyone. She had fled from the home to sleep in the bush on multiple occasions to avoid abuse. The matter was reported after the neighbor noticed a change in the girls’s behaviour and asked her and she revealed the abuse.
