A man is being held without bail after he allegedly raped his three sisters.
The 23-year-old man was accused of raping the three girls, who are between 9 and 12 years old.
The man, who lives in Gweru, Zimbabwe, was brought before judge Morgan Nemadire, to answer three counts of rape. He pleaded not guilty and was remanded into custody.
The incident began after the children’s mother passed away. The man went to live with his grandmother while the girls went to live with their father, who has since remarried.
When the three sisters went to stay at their grandmother’s house, the brother raped them.
One night, when the girls were in their brother’s bedroom, he allegedly closed the door and proceeded to rape his nine-year-old sister. He forced the other two to watch.
On another occasion, the court heard that while the three children were sleeping the brother allegedly sneaked into their room and raped each one of them before threatening them to keep the matter secret.
The abuse came to light after one of the girl’s teachers questioned her about why she was limping and having difficulty walking. The girl told the teacher about the rape incident.
The teacher immediately reported the matter to the police, leading to the arrest of man.
