A man reportedly forced his 15-year-old daughter to watch pornographic video before fondling her breasts intending to have sexual intercourse with her, a court heard.
The 38-year-old man, whose name is withheld to protect the minor's identity, decided to quench his sexual desires on his own flesh and blood. He allegedly invited her to his house and played an adult movie.
The daughter reported the incident to the police leading to his arrest. He was hauled before the court, charged with indecent assault and showing a film not approved. The man is out of custody after the court granted him US$100 bail as he awaits his trial. The man will be back in court by way of summons after the State witnesses went AWOL thus the court refused to place him on further remand.
Lawrence Gangarahwe alleged that during the month of November last year the 15-year-old girl went to her father's place of residence to collect school fees. The State alleged that he asked his daughter to cook for him in the kitchen. He is said to have assured his daughter that she was the best child in his family and wanted to tell her something which he did not disclose at that moment.
The unsuspecting daughter was shocked when her father fondled her breasts once. During the same moment, the father took his cell phone and played a pornographic video and showed it to his teenage daughter who knelt down in disbelief. The man took advantage of this and further fondled her breasts.
Fortunately the girl managed to sneak away from her father and advised her grandmother about the incident before reporting the matter to the police.
