Girl forces younger brother into sex at knife­point

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Than­deka Moyo

A COW­DRAY Park teen sex­u­ally as­saulted her brother (14) sev­eral times at knife point.

A court heard the girl (17) who can­not be named, at one point told her brother that she was preg­nant and that she would make a rape re­port if the boy re­fused to con­tinue hav­ing sex with her.

The fright­ened boy ended up con­fid­ing in his teacher.

The teacher was also get­ting wor­ried as the boy’s grades dipped dras­ti­cally around the same time.

Re­gional mag­is­trate Mr Chrispen Mberewere con­demned the girl’s be­hav­iour. He sen­tenced her to five years in prison, which he sus­pended on con­di­tion she does not com­mit a sim­i­lar crime in the next five years.

The girl pleaded guilty to two counts of ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault claim­ing that she heard voices that or­dered her to have in­ter­course with her brother.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Mr Sim­barashe Manyiwa said that some­time in June at around 9PM while the boy, who is do­ing Form Two was sleep­ing, his sis­ter went into his room car­ry­ing a knife.

“She placed the knife on his neck and or­dered him to un­dress. The girl ca­ressed her brother be­fore forc­ing him to have in­ter­course,” said Mr Manyiwa.

“He didn’t re­port the mat­ter to any­one but re­solved that he would in­form his teacher at school. Af­ter a week she told her brother that she was preg­nant with his baby and she wanted to tell her mother that the boy had raped her.”

The court heard that the girl made her brother prom­ise to have in­ter­course with her if he did not want her to make the rape re­port.

“She con­tin­ued vis­it­ing her brother’s room and se­duc­ing him sev­eral times be­fore forc­ing him into hav­ing in­ter­course. The girl’s shenani­gans came to light af­ter she forced her brother to have in­ter­course with her twice on July 17,” he said.

“The boy went to school and told his coun­selling teacher that there was some­thing trou­bling him. He then re­vealed that his sis­ter was in the habit of forc­ing him to have in­ter­course with her. The teacher made a re­port which led to the girl’s ar­rest.”
