The Zimbabwe Republic Police in Bikita has reported that a one-year-old male infant was assaulted by his father after he started crying. The child's health deteriorated and he died twelve days later.

Police have warned parents against using excessive force on minors.

Meanwhile, in three separate incidents, three juveniles aged between 11 and 15 years were raped in Kuwadzana, Mutoko and Buhera by an extra lessons teacher, a neighbour and an uncle.

In all incidents, all the accused persons were arrested and will soon appear in court the police said.

ZRP added that parents are warned against engaging dubious characters to conduct lessons with children, especially the girl child. Children's movements should be monitored so that neighbours and close relatives do not take advantage of them.
