Impalila Island: Teacher Impregnates Own Daughter
The schoolteacher (name withheld until formal charges at Bukalo Khuta) has made a full confession in a three-page letter submitted to the sub-khuta. It has been reported that the schoolteacher made some sort of out-of-court settlement and agreed to pay the mother of the daughter he impregnated 30 head of cattle. The settlement was to cover ‘damages’ and to buy her silence.
Despite what could be seen as a hefty fine in an area where islets and peninsulas abound save for the main island, the teacher could face another fine of up to 20 cattle bringing the total to a record 50 head of cattle.
New Era was also informed the suspect committed the incest at the instigation of a bush doctor who promised him fabulous riches, but he also told the indunas, “I am not the only one. But I have fallen foul of the potency of juju as I followed its sweetness.”
The child who is pregnant by her father, had to drop out of school for a year. She's now in the custody of social workers.
The schoolgirl, who cannot be identified on ethical grounds, is in the Grade 10 grade.
The schoolteacher has shared, that when he met his daughter's mother, she was still a student and due to her pregnancy...she was forced to drop out of school as well.
