Ms. Matanga said the suspect is facing five counts of rape and police were continuing their investigation with the case.

“This is a very sad case for all of us, this is one of the examples of young girls have been victimized by a person who they trust and in a position to look after them, and in this case , the rape suspect is the fatrher of the victims,” she said.

“So it is important for us to encourage people who are in this type of situation to come forward and have trust in the police, so that we can address and reduce this problem.”
