Rasta man bonks daughter; to lose dreadlocks as punishment

A rasta man risks being thrown out of the Rastafarian Society of Ghana for allegedly impregnating his own daughter.

The suspect [name withheld] according to reports repeatedly had sex with the girl when they travelled to Togo for holidays.

Ras Opa, Leader of the Kokrobite branch of the Rastafarian Society in the Greater Accra region broke the story to Adom News Monday.

He indicated that, when they returned to Ghana, the young girl was already pregnant but had refused to reveal who was responsible.

"Her mother was very worried so she told us to convince the girl to tell us the truth but she refused" he stated.

Ras Opa said, their colleague reportedly assaulted his daughter and also threatened to deal with her if she told anyone about her ordeal.

He indicated that, the girl finally broke her silence and named her father as being responsible when they threatened to beat her.

“The case is an open secret now in Kokrobite and everyone is pointing accusing fingers at we rastamen in the area” he bemoaned.

Ras Opa said the conduct of the suspect has brought shame to the society which abhors such incestuous and abominable acts.

“We rastafarains especially in Kokrobite are known for our uprightness so the conduct of this man has brought a lot of shame to us".

For his punishment, Ras Opa said they will shave his dreadlocks and ex-communicate him from the society to serve as a deterrent to others.

“No true Rastafarian will sleep with his own daughter; he has really disgraced us so we will shave his dreadlocks” he fumed.
