A daring 24-year old man from Gokwe allegedly impregnated his 66-year-old grandmother. Normore Mudavanhu is the talk of the village for getting Sazini Dube, his maternal grandmother, pregnant. If the baby is born that means it will become his mother’s younger sister.
Therefore, other than being it father, the child will become his aunt or uncle. Chief Njelele in whose jurisdiction the village falls is aware of the matter. “I cannot comment much because the two have not appeared in my court. However, I have heard about the embarrassing incident,” the Chief said.
He’s not surprised because it’s not the first of such incidents from the village.
“A number of people in my area have a tendency of engaging in incestuous relationships. I have dealt with a lot of such cases and I think it’s high time I give tough penalties,” said Chief Njelele. A source who is related to the two told the press that sometime this year it was discovered that the two were having an illicit affair. “Mudavanhu would be seen in the wee hours coming from Dube’s bedroom hut. A family meeting was called and the two were told to drop their illegitimate relationship or they risked being permanently cut off from the family,” said the source.
An apology followed but Dube is now three months pregnant with her grandson’s seed.
