Legal Resources Centre to apply for termination of incest pregnancy




MBERENGWA – The Legal Resource Centre (LRF) is set to make an application for the termination of a four months pregnancy of a 16 year old girl who was impregnated by her 24 year-old brother.
The two are from Bugwi Village, Chief Bvute in Mberengwa.
The development comes after magistrate Evia Matura sentenced the brother Nkangelo Sibanda to 18 months imprisonment while Nokuthula who was represented by LRC escaped a custodial sentence and was warned and cautioned.
The LRC told the court that they were going to make an application for the termination of the pregnancy to allow the young girl to restart her life.
The two were caught having sex in Nokuthula’s room by one of their brothers.
