A ZIMBABWE Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) employee appeared before the court in Gweru Tuesday on allegations of raping his 4-year-old daughter.

The man, who cannot be named to protect identity of the child, is 39 years old and lives in Gweru’s Mkoba 6 suburb.

Regional magistrate Morgan Nemadire heard that on February 8 this year the man took his daughter and her little brother from their grandmother’s house in Mkoba 16 to his place of residence.

Upon arrival at the house the kids started playing outside but the girl later on got inside the house.

The man took his daughter to his bedroom where he allegedly removed her undergarments and laid her on his bed before raping her once.

A few hours later the man took the two children back to their grandmother where he told her (grandmother) that he wanted to go back with his daughter since she was not attending school but the girl refused.

When the girl’s grandmother wanted to cut her toe nails on the 9th February she refused saying she would bleed from her privates as happened at her father’s house.

Curious the grandmother examined the girl and saw reddish marks.

A report was made to the police leading to the arrest of the father.
