In a bizarre incident, a man from Plumtree in Mbimba Village allegedly raped his 14-year-old sister on Monday night.

The man who cannot be named for ethical reasons was arrested for the offence.

He is also said to have threatened the minor who happened to be his blood sister before raping her.

The minor [name withheld], said his brother raped her once and threatened to deal with her if she dares scream.

Narrating her ordeal, the visibly shocked girl said her brother promised that once she concerted, the family was going to be rich.

"He said if I sleep with him, our family would be rich. After that he started counting money which was almost 1000 Pula", she said.

The incident happened in the absence of the girl's mother who was reported to be in Botswana.

The following morning (today), the girl reported the incident to her grandmother who stays a stone throw away from their homestead.

Meanwhile, the girl has been taken for medical checkups while his brother is in custody awaiting court appearance on rape charges.
