A 43 year old father is in police custody at Mchinji police station for allegedly impregnating his 15 year old biological daughter, News Watch Reviews has reported.
The police arrested this libidous father Lucas Mtimakulasa on September 20 this year after recording this traumatic complaint.
Mchinji Police Publist, Inspector Kaitano Lubrino said the victim disclosed to police that she started having sexual intercourse with her own father in April this year.
“In April, the victim’s step mother whom she stays with was nursing her daughter who was admitted to St. Gabriel Mission Hospital for a maternity case where they spent a period close to a month. Just to end his lust and sexual desire the suspect used his wife’s absence to sleep with the daughter by force”, said Kaitano.
Inspector Kaitano further said that in several occasions after sex, the suspect could intimidate and instruct his daughter not to reveal his abomination to anybody and she further received death threats that once she discloses his unwanted behaviour to the society she will be killed.
“Early last month the mother noticed signs of pregnancy on her step daughter, as such the girl was summoned before a forum of elders from the village only to be learnt that her father was responsible for the pregnancy”, further said Kaitano.
After learning this news the elders informed village headman Mafuta before the issue was reported to Namizana Police Boarder Post in Mchinji.
Medical examination on pregnancy test conducted at Mchinji District Hospital proved that the girl is really pregnant hence the arrest of the suspect.
Meanwhile, the suspect will appear before Mchinji magistrate court to answer the charge of incest which is contrary to section 153 of the penal code.
Lucas Mtimakulasa, 43, hails from Mafuta village in the area of Traditional Authority Mabvwere in Mchinji.
