A 40-YEAR-OLD MUZARABANI man was sentenced to 28 years in jail by Bindura regional magistrate Amos Mbobo yesterday after raping his own daughter.

The convict who cannot be named for ethical reasons will however serve 18 years effective after the magistrate suspended 10 years on condition of good behaviour.

Prosecutor Ngoni Kaseke told the court that sometime in March the convict hatched a plan to rape his daughter during the absence of her mother.

He raped her twice after inviting her into his bedroom and threatened to kill her if she reveals the rape to anyone.

The matter came to light after the victim told her teacher at school and through a tip-off the father was arrested.
