An 18-year-old Harare man has been arrested for allegedly raping his 10-year-old biological sister several times since 2019.
The sexual abuse came to light on Sunday when the girl told her mother about the rape leading to the arrest of her brother.
Police said the brother would invite his little sister to watch pornographic videos on his phone before raping her.
ZRP spokesperson in Harare Province, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza, confirmed the arrest to H-Metro, adding the girl has since been referred to Edith Opperman Clinic for medical examination. He said:
Police arrested an 18-year-old man for raping his biological sister. In 2019, the accused person was left at home with his little sister by their mother for a week.
The accused person took advantage of their mother’s absence and forced the victim into having sexual intercourse with him four times.
He threatened her that if she tells anyone he would kill her.
In the afternoon of January 11 this year, the accused person played pornographic videos on his cellphone and forced the complainant to watch but she refused and ran away.
On January 13, the accused person went into the dining room where the complainant was seated and forced her to sleep on the sofa and raped her.
The complainant told her mother about the incident as well as the past abuses and a report was made.
