Father And Stepdaughter Arrested For Incestuous Affair

A 49-year-old man from Victoria Falls and his 34-year-old stepdaughter have been arrested for incest.

Siphilanzima Sibanda of Kachechete village BH36 Chidobe and his stepdaughter Thuleleni Dube were hauled before the courts jointly charged with having sexual intercourse within a prohibited degree of relationship.

The two briefly appeared before Victoria Falls magistrate Godswill Mavenge and the matter was rolled over to Thursday.

Sibanda and Dube were not been asked to plead to the charge.

Allegations are that Sibanda and Dube, who reside at the same homestead, started the relationship in June last year.

That was when Sikhohlisiwe Mpofu, the mother to Dube, travelled to Bulawayo and stayed there for three months. Said, prosecutors:

Sometime on a date unknown but during the period extending from 1 June 2022 to 2 January 2023 and at Kachechete village, Chidobe under Chief Mvuthu, Siphilanzima Sibanda had sexual intercourse with his stepdaughter Thuleleni Dube several times on different occasions with her consent.

When Mpofu travelled to Bulawayo to visit her sister, she left the two alone with Dube’s minor daughter.

It is alleged that when she returned, she observed that her husband’s behaviour had changed.

Mpofu reportedly caught the two red-handed in a compromising position on 27 December in a bush.

She reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of the two. | Chronicle
