A father used a stick to beat his teenage daughter because she had sex with her boyfriend without her parents’ consent, according to police in Zimbabwe.

Midlands police said that they are looking to arrest Benjamin Mpanduki, after being accused of killing 15-year-old Pamela Believer Mpanduki.

The child’s mother, Loraite Mupasa, who was home at the time of the killing, is not facing any charges. Benjamin faces a charge of murder.

Benjamin is currently on the run, and police asked anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward.

According to the police investigation, Benjamin warned Pamela to stop going out with her boyfriend as he and his wife did not approve of them having sex before marriage.

On Tuesday, at around 9:00 p.m., Pamela came home, and was confronted by her angry father, who assumed that she was out with her boyfriend.

Benjamin grabbed a stick and beat his daughter until she fell unconscious. When Mupasa checked on her daughter the following morning, she noticed that the girl was not breathing.

Mupasa called for help, but by then, it was too late. Pamela was declared dead at the scene.
