    Man rapes, torments three step daughters for 12 years


    - Emmanuel Masikati (44) of Hugos Fontein in Chivhu has been remanded in custody facing allegations of raping his lover's daughters since they were in grade seven until they were aged 26.
    Allegations are that the daughters only mustered the courage to report the matter to relatives after the death of the mother who is said to have witnessed some of the rape episodes but told the daughters not to tell anyone.
    The complainant in the case says she was infected with HIV.
    She further said that the stepfather would regularly insert his fingers in her vagina to check whether she was not sleeping with other men. She would also be forced to take family planning pills.
    Masikati appeared before Magistrate Dennis Mungosi who remanded him in custody to Wednesday this week.
    Allegations are that Masikati started raping one of the daughters when she was 14 and doing grade seven. He raped her while she was herding cattle and continued doing the same until the step-daughter's mother died recently and the complainant is now 26.
    It is the State case that the accused person would approach the complainant in a bush whilst she was herding cattle alone and have unconsented sex with her .
    The Court also heard that Masikati would take out his okapi knife and threaten to stab the complainant if she refused.
    The complainant did not tell anyone about the issue until 16 July this year when her mother died. She approached her aunt during the funeral and informed her that she was being sexually abused by the accused.
    Her aunt accompanied her to Chivhu Police station where she was referred to Chivhu General Hospital for medical examination.
    There are also allegations that the accused raped the complainant's two twin sisters after threatening them with his knife. The complainant said Masikati would sometimes lock his wife inside a room and went on to rape her in their spare bedroom. At one moment, the mother managed to open the door and caught him red handed but she did not tell anyone.
