Chief Makope has expressed dismay over three cases of incest by school children in his area of jurisdiction.

According to Makope a cousin brother and a sister from Mbari Secondary school in Mvurwi all in form one have impregnated each other and the pregnancy is four months old now.

"What is happening in my area is very worry some last week I presided over a case of cousins who impregnated each other after sleeping together in a same room for a while, the two are related in that their fathers are blood brothers hence they should not sleep together since they are related it is a taboo above all they are school children," Makope fumed.

He said the pregnancy should be terminated and have sought permission from the police where they received a letter to abort.

"Traditionally that pregnancy should be terminated we have asked for a letter from the police to terminate that pregnancy and they gave us a letter of termination," Makope said.

However, Mashonaland Central spokesperson said he is yet to receive the report.

In a related case at Jengamvura secondary in Chiweshe Chief Chiweshe heard that a 17 year old brother impregnated his 14 year old blood sister.

"Another disturbing case was recorded at Jengamvura Secondary where a form three impregnated his form one sister but unfortunately their pregnancy cannot be terminated now as it a month from birth."

Chief Makope said the last case was recorded in Chiweshe Gunguwo village under village head svosve where a 17 year old boy impregnated his 15year old sister.

Makope said these bizarre incidents portray some strange things being done by their parents and that should stop to allow peace to prevail in his area.

"These strange happenings do not just happen they are telling us about the unclean living of their parents I seriously condemn such behaviour because if they do not live a clean life peace will not prevail in my area so they should allow peace to prevail at all the time," Makope said.
