A man of South Africa, was arrested on charges of rape and incest after it was discovered that he took his daughter as a wife.

The man’s son called police after he learned that his 55-year-old father was raping his sister.

The father has been having sex with his daughter ever since her mother died 5 years ago. At that time,the girl was only 10 years old.

“My father had been talking about how he needed someone to replace my mom,” the victim’s brother said. “He kept saying that my sister and I reminded him of our mother,” he added.

“He said that she would be perfect for her replacement. We did not understand what he meant by this,” the brother told police.

However, five years later, he learned that his father took the girl into his room and had sex with her as if she was his wife.

The girl finally summed up the courage and told a pastor that she was being sexually abused by her father. The girl was taken to a doctor, who confirmed that the girl had been raped.

Constable Vincent Masheting said that the father was arrested and appeared at the Protea Glen Magistrates Court on a charges of rape and incest.
