The court sentenced the man to 33 years in prison for the rape and HIV infection of his 9-year-old niece
The court sentenced a 24-year-old Zimbabwean to 33 years in prison for learning about his 9-year-old niece’s channel in third grade and infecting her with HIV.
A man who shared a house with his sister and children reportedly took advantage of her absence to rape his niece several times between March and April.
The court heard that a pervert uncle sneaked into the room where his nieces slept and raped a 9-year-old boy. A 9-year-old girl shared a room with her younger sisters, four and two years old.
The sad abuse was discovered after a little girl refused to sleep in the room. When her older sister asked about the resistance, the 9-year-old revealed that her uncle raped her.
The incident was reported to the police and subsequent medical examination revealed that the child was infected with HIV.
When he was summoned to the regional judge, Mr. Christopher Mattheurure, on two charges of raping his niece and one each of deliberately infecting her with HIV, the man pleaded not guilty and made a vigorous attempt to rebut the charges. However, his ruse did not work and the judge found him guilty after a full trial.
The judge did not say kind words to his uncle, who abused his confidential position to rob his sister’s son. He said his sentence should serve as a deterrent to other would-be like-minded criminals and sentenced him to 33 years in prison.
The Chronicles reported that Matthewret said;
“His life has completely changed because of your actions. For rape you were sentenced to 18 years and you deliberately infected the plaintiff for 15 years. “
