Man accused of impregnating teen sister

ON THE CASE: Kwarare

A 25-year-old Thamaga man is accused of impregnating his 17-year-old biological sister.

The suspect, whose names cannot be revealed to protect the complainant, is said to have slept with his sibling around March this year.

The young girl, who has just completed her Form 3 exams, is now heavily pregnant and due to give birth next month.

According to the police, the suspect and the complainant, as well as a younger brother, had been living and sleeping together in one room while their mother was away at the lands.

The suspect allegedly had unprotected sexual intercourse with his sister, and has reportedly confessed to the incest but claimed it was a mistake.

According to Thamaga Police Station Commander, Moses Kwarare, the police were called to the hospital after the girl went for pregnancy registration when she was in her seventh month.

“The girl went for pregnancy registration on November 25. The nurses questioned her about the father since she was young and a student for that matter. She then told them that the brother is the father, that’s when they phoned the police who later registered a case,” explained Superintendent Kwarare.

The top cop further disclosed the teenager is staying with her mother at the lands while undergoing counselling from Social Welfare Officers.

The accused recently appeared before Molepolole Magistrates’ Court facing a single charge of Incest. If found guilty, he faces a possible sentence of five years imprisonment.

The unemployed suspect was remanded in custody until his next mention, scheduled for 21 January 2021.
