A 41-YEAR-OLD man pleaded guilty to raping his own daughter when he appeared in the Mhala Regional Court in Mpumalanga on Tuesday.
The man, who is from the Thulamahashe area near Bushbuckridge, told the court he was sorry for having raped his 11-year-old daughter.
The rape happened while the kid’s mother, from whom the man is separated, was away in Mozambique.
The evil man was caught out in April last year when the girl was six months pregnant.
At first the accused claimed it was Mozambican culture for a man to sleep with his own child while she was still a virgin.
When he appeared in court in October last year, he said he was innocent and that people had poisoned his daughter’s mind.
Social workers are working on sending the girl back to the mother, who lives in Mozambique.
The case was postponed to 22 February for sentencing.
