An 18-year-old boy from Esigodini, Matabeleland South Province has impregnated his 6-year-old sister.

The siblings have been hauled before a magistrate and charged with incest. According to B Metro, the boy has described the sexual relationship as “mind-blowing”. The girl is said to be five months pregnant.

The court heard that sometime in August 2023, the boy (name withheld) who was sexually attracted to his younger sister who also cannot be named to protect her identity, proposed love to her and she agreed.

The two were staying together with their parents when they formed a highly unusual bond that led to sexual encounters several times. It was proved in court that again on an unknown date but sometime in January this year the boy asked his younger sister to have sexual intercourse with him and she agreed.

The two then entered into one of the bedrooms and had sexual intercourse twice. The illicit affair, however, came to light in March this year when it was discovered that the boy’s younger sister was pregnant. Questioned by her mother, she disclosed that it was her elder brother who was responsible for the pregnancy. Shocked by the revelations, the mother reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of the siblings.

The boy was sentenced to 12 months in prison of which four months were suspended for five years on condition that he does not within that period commit any offence involving sexual intercourse within a prohibited degree of relationship, for which upon conviction, he will be sentenced to imprisonment without the option of a fine. The remaining eight months were suspended on condition that he completes 280 hours of community service at Mawabeni Clinic.

His younger sister received a six-month sentence, fully suspended for five years, with similar conditions regarding offences involving sexual intercourse within a prohibited degree of relationship.
