Speaking with NAN, the daughter said that whenever she refused to sleep with her  father he beat her.

“If I refuse to sleep with my father he will beat me. One day he came home and saw  me with a boy of my age, my father plugged a pressing iron and used it on my face,  telling me not to associate with any boy so that our secret will not be exposed.

“He sleeps with me twice every week except when I am menstruating; my twin brother  always leave the room whenever my father sleeps with me,” she added.
