It really is an abhorrent and egregious act. An adult male abusing the trust of the society by sexually preying on his young female relative, proceeding to impregnate her and produce a child from her womb, are shocking developments in any society; ones which must make a conscientious perpetrator hang his head in shame at the disgraceful conduct... but only if he has a conscience.

 

In the olden days, such an animalistic human will be banished from the midst of the village community and the child produced from such offensive liaison will have to be spiritually cleansed by using incantations to the gods to cleanse the curse from the child and from the entire village. Usually, the relatives of the banished perpetrator of incestuous rape will express deep remorse and even pay fines.

 

However, the problem arises if the act is seen as culturally acceptable to the perpetrator and his relatives like his older biological brother or his hopeless, filthy mother in the village.


Proffering a defence that the sexual liaison was by consent is not acceptable especially if the said niece was below the statutory age.

 

In such a case, the rapist who impregnated his niece and produced a male child by the niece is subject to face the laws of the land. These laws include but are not limited to Criminal Incest & Statutory Illegal Carnal Knowledge of an under-aged female which is tantamount to Rape; easily proven in a court of law.


In Sierra Leone such an offensive male rapist can be sent to a jail term of between ten and fifteen years during which he would co-exist with fellow male rapists behind closed doors of prison cells where he might be taught that Rape is a bad thing to happen to anyone including your own female relative let alone go on to impregnate her and produce a cursed male child out of her innocent womb.
