IN an incident which left Chimanimani villagers calling for justice, a man from Koffi village under Chief Mutambara allegedly assisted his friend to rape his 13-year-old daughter.

Police said on April 16 at around 11.30pm, Temwa Garirekufa went to his rural home in the company of his friend, Martin Manjeya.

Garirekufa saw his 13-year-old daughter sleeping alone in her room and ordered her to open the door.

He allegedly forced Manjeya to share the same bedroom without the juvenile's consent.

"Manjeya shared the room with the juvenile, but raped her once during the night.

"The following day, early in the morning he ordered the juvenile not to report the matter to anyone.

He allegedly gave Garirekufa $90 before vanishing. The juvenile went on to report the matter to the police," said Assistant Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Luxson Chananda.

He said Garirekufa and his wife ran away after realising that their daughter had reported the matter to the police.

They are still at large and police are appealing to members of the public with information leading to their arrest to contact their nearest police station.
