THE prosecution in the trial of an uncle accused of raping his niece told assessors that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.
The man is alleged to have accompanied his niece to a bus shelter on a rainy morning where he raped her.
The court heard that the victim was staying with the accused for three years.
The court was told that on the morning in question, the victim was accompanied to the bus stop because it was raining and there was only one umbrella in the house.
The court was told that at the bus stop, the accused pulled the complainant to him, made her sit on his lap and then committed the offence.
The prosecution said the complainant related the incident to a friend who testified in court.
The defence counsel said there was contradiction between the statements given by two witnesses and the evidence given in court.
The court will sum up the case to assessors today who will give their opinion on the guilt of the accused.
