Man Jailed For 33 Years For Raping And Infecting 9 Year Old Niece With HIV
24-year-old woman For raping his 9-year-old grade-three niece and infecting her with HIV, a Zimbabwean man was sentenced to 33 years in jail.
The guy, who has been living in the same house as his sister and her children, allegedly raped his niece on multiple occasions between March and April while his sister was away.
The pervert uncle allegedly snuck into the room where his nieces were sleeping and raped the 9-year-old, according to the court. The 9-year-old shared a bed with her four- and two-year-old sisters.
After the little girl refused to sleep in the bed, the sad abuses were discovered. As her older sister inquired about her apprehension, the 9-year-old admitted that her uncle had been rapping her.
The incident was confirmed to the authorities, and a medical examination found that the minor had been infected with HIV.
When he was arraigned before Regional Magistrate Mr Christopher Maturure on two counts of raping his niece and one count of intentionally infecting her with HIV, the man pleaded not guilty and made a strong defense. However, his deception did not succeed, and after a thorough hearing, the judge found him guilty.
The uncle who used his place of confidence to prey on his sister’s child received harsh punishment from the magistrate. He said that his sentence would act as a deterrent to other like-minded would-be criminals, and he was given a 33-year sentence.
Maturure, according to the Chronicle, said:
“Your words have completely changed her life. You are sentenced to 18 years in prison for rape and 15 years in prison for intentionally infecting the complainant.”
