According to a report of the incident by Daily Sun ZA, the 42-year-old dad allegedly turned to his daughter to meet his sexual needs after the death of his wife.

After having s*x with the daughter every day, the man forced her to do abortion when he realized that she was pregnant.
However, the bubble was burst after the girl mustered up the courage last week to narrate the incident to a classmate and the friend approached a teacher. The teacher reported the matter to the principal, who went to the cops on Monday.
The principal told the father to meet him at the school and when he arrived, the cops pounced. He was arrested and charged with r*pe and organising an illegal abortion. The girl was taken to a place of safety.
The man's neighbours expressed shock over the incident.
“If we’d known we wouldn’t have allowed him to live among us. He’s an animal. How can a father treat his own child like that? He must rot in jail,” said one resident.
Another community member said: “There are many women looking for men. He could have picked anyone but because he’s a coward, he chose to sleep with his own daughter.”
Springs police spokesman Captain Johannes Ramphora confirmed the incident.
“We commend the principal and teacher. What happened to the girl is unacceptable and the law will take its course. We appeal to other girls in the same situation to tell someone and not to suffer in silence.”
