    Man rapes stepdaughter, hides pregnancy till delivery


    – A 34-year-old man from Chief Mafala's area in Mberengwa has appeared in court facing charges of raping and impregnating his 15-year-old stepdaughter.
    The mother only discovered the pregnancy when her daughter went into labour pains.
    Obert Hove is facing two counts of rape because the minor does not remember how many times she was raped. She however, only says many times.
    It is the State case that on September 5, 2015 Hove and his stepdaughter went into the bush to cut roofing poles.
    On their way back home the accused pretended as if he had seen more poles and told the complainant to drop the poles she was carrying so that he could add more.
    The complainant dropped the poles and Hove allegedly pulled her into the bush where he pushed the minor to the ground, raped and threatened to kill her if she was to say anything.
    In October last year Hove allegedly raped the minor again when her mother had gone for an all-night prayer in Mberengwa. From then on he allegedly raped the minor many times.
    The matter only came to light when she went into labour pains.
