She recalls visiting ZBC radio station to try and get assistance for her daughter and later travelling to Mozambique to see a traditional healer who temporarily healed her.
“During lockdown days, I took my daughter to Radio Zimbabwe and aired her plight on a show by Tarisai with a view to get help and she got help.
I was referred to Mozambique to see Sekuru Chiyokoto a traditional healer who is now late and my hope was to reduce her stomach size.
My target was for her body size to be reduced, she had a big body and her stomach stopped growing for two weeks,” narrated Chipo.
The quest to get her daughter healed never stopped with constant visits to churches and faith based healers until the bleeding stooped.
Chisora never suspected her daughter had been raped until alert school authorities at Kambira School decided to take her for tests on Wednesday morning.
The visit opened a can of worms with the girl’s uncle Luke Chisora (not his real name) who accompanied the teachers to the school attesting they are still trying to grapple with the news they received. “With the news I received, I am touched.
The girl’s mother, my sister was raped when she was young, my own daughter was raped and now it has happened in the family again.” Medical tests revealed the child is in a breech position in the nine-year-old girl’s womb, giving the family more worry over the minor’s health.
Zimbabwe Republic Police Spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said two juveniles have been arrested on charges of rape.
“The ZRP is investigating the case of a 9-year-old girl who was raped by two suspects aged 17-years-old and she has now been established to be pregnant and this is really sad, this is really shocking so we are conducting investigations,” said Ass Comm Nyathi.
The incident follows the recent case of a Tsolotsho girl who gave birth three days ago after falling pregnant at the same age of nine years.
The two incidents have raised much concern in social circles over what has become of modern day society.
