HARARE – A 13-year-old girl is three months pregnant from a rape incident she suffered in Chitungwiza.
Police reported the shock case via their official Twitter handle Saturday.
“The ZRP is investigating a case of rape in which a 13 year old girl was raped in July 2022 at a workshop in Unit D, Seke Chitungwiza.
“The girl was medically examined and it was established that she is three months pregnant. The suspect has not been arrested,” police said Saturday.
The incident follows a shocking rise in cases of child rape resulting in victims falling pregnant.
The nation is still shocked over two cases in which two 9-year-old minors fell pregnant with one of them confirmed through DNA tests to be a result of a sexual act between the Tsholotsho minor and a 13-year-old cousin.
Two 17-year-old boys were also arrested and taken as suspects in the violation of the Bindura minor.
