Peter Chawapiwa in Gutu
10 Feb 2017 - GUTU - A 30-year old Gutu man who stands accused of impregnating his friend's 14-year-old daughter has failed to appear in court after skipping bail and reportedly fleeing to South Africa.
Police have however launched a manhunt for the suspect.
Last week, TellZim News carried a story on Justice Madhawu who allegedly impregnated the girl in July last year.
The matter only came to light when the minor's sister took her to Gutu Rural Hospital for a pregnancy test which proved to be positive.
The minor's father said Madhawu was a frequent visitor to his home but he had never suspected that he had other intentions with his daughter.
The minor earlier told this reporter that Madhawu proposed love to her early in July 2016 while her father was sleeping in his bedroom but she did not respond to his proposal.
She said on the same day, Madhawu pulled her onto the sofa where he was sitting and became intimate with her. He came back on several occasions in the same month and was intimate with her on the same sofa until she fell pregnant.local
