A woman was arrested after she was caught having sex with her nephew.
The woman of Zvishavane, Zimbabwe, told police that she slept with her 12-year-old nephew after her husband told them to do so.
The 21-year-old woman was caught in the act by the child's mother who called police. The boy is not here blood relative, but her nephew from her husband’s side.
The woman was brought before a magistrate, and she told the judge that her husband instructed her to have sex with the boy while he was away at work.
The woman, who lives in Kofi, told the judge that her husband told the 12 year-old boy that he can “inherit her” and take over his role while he was away to work as a gold miner.
The woman told the judge that “they were just following his orders.” However, the woman failed to convince the judge so she pleaded guilty to sexual assault.
During sentencing, the judge said that the woman had lured the young boy to have sex with her and she had to be punished. The woman was sentenced to 6 months in prison.
