Police are searching for a man who allegedly raped his 15-year-old niece regularly at gunpoint, resulting in the girl falling pregnant.
The crimes were allegedly committed in KwaMsane, Mtubatuba, in northern KwaZulu- Natal between February and July.
The girl lives with her grandmother and uncle. Her mother works and lives in Gauteng.
When the girl's feet became swollen, her grandmother called her mother who took her to a clinic, where it was confirmed that she was six months pregnant.
In a separate case, Sthembiso Gumbi, 22, appeared in the Ubombo magistrate's court on Friday on charges of child neglect.
