Father to the late video vixen Michelle ‘Moana’ Amuli has been accused of raping his former wife (Moana’s mother) leading to Moana’s birth.
The accusations were made by Dr Muzvare Betty Makoni in a tweet quoted below.
In the tweet, Dr Makoni says the age difference between Moana and her mother suggests that Moana was born when her mother was just 15 years old.
She further extrapolates that this means that Moana’s father had sex with her mother when she was only 14 years old. In Zimbabwe, statutory rape is defined as consensual sex with anyone under the age of 16.
Dr Makoni goes on to say:
I want him punished for historical statutory rape.
According to Dr Makoni, rape as a crime takes 50 years so the period for reporting him for rape has not elapsed.
At the time of her death, Moana’s father and mother had separated and there are wrangles between the two families that have delayed her burial.
