Another Masvingo cop on the run after raping daughter

Star Matsongoni
A Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP)
sergeant stationed with the Masvingo Provincial Legal Services is on the run
after revelations that he repeatedly raped his now 16-year-old daughter since
The 36-year-old police officer,
who cannot be named to protect the identity of his victim, was staying at ZRP
Zimuto Camp and is now understood to be now on the run.
Efforts to get a comment from
Masvingo provincial police spokesperson Chief Inspector Charity Mazula were
fruitless as she was said to be out of office and busy with preparations for
the agricultural show.
Sources said in March 2017, the
police officer raped the girl at their one-roomed Rujeko lodgings after her
mother went to their rural home, leaving her and her younger sibling in the
care of their father.
The police officer went on to
rape his daughter six more times on different occasions between April and May
2017, all the time threatening the victim against revealing the abuse to
During the previous school
holidays (August 2019) the girl’s mother again went to the rural areas and left
the victim with her father at their Zimuto Camp house where they now stayed.
The cop then asked the girl to
accompany him to fetch some firewood in the bush along the Masvingo-Mutare Road
where he raped her again.
The victim, however, gathered
enough courage this time around and revealed the abuses to her two uncles who stay
at 4 Brigade army barracks but again cannot be named here to protect the
identity of the victim.
A police case under RRB Number
4150566 has since been opened against the offending officer and the victim was
referred to Masvingo Provincial Hospital for medical examination.
A few weeks ago, another senior
police officer who stayed at Phoenix Base fled after many years of raping his
step-daughter who is still in secondary school.
