My Grandfather Is Actually My Father: DNA Tests Unearth Disturbing Family Secret
DNA tests have exposed a deeply disturbing family secret after a 43-year-old man learned that his maternal grandfather is also his biological father.
The shocking paternity case was revealed on one of radio and television personality Tilder Moyo-Karizamimba’s live shows. The hapless man, whose identity will not be disclosed, initiated the paternity test. He approached Tilder Moyo to have the DNA tests carried out by the local laboratory, Expedite DNA Zimbabwe.
Narrating why he had decided to have DNA tests carried out, the man said that he grew up and the care of his maternal grandparents. He never knew who his father was. Whenever he broached the subject, he would get different answers depending on the person he talked to.
He revealed that there were at least five very different narratives about how he was conceived. One of the narratives was that during the Second Chimurenga, freedom fighters had forced themselves upon his mother. However, as he got older, some people in the local community told him that he need not look too far to find his father, since he shared the same house with him. They hinted that his grandfather was strongly suspected by the community to be raping and impregnating his daughters.
He also says that as he got older, he became aware of his grandfather’s perverse predilections and suspected him of raping his daughters and granddaughters.
Following the father’s death, he says that some of his mother’s sisters tried to dispossess him of his inheritance. He was left part of the farm by his grandfather. His maternal grandmother, who was on her death bed, counselled him to fight for his birthright. She allegedly told him that he was the deceased’s biological child as well and had as much right to the property as anyone.
However, none of his relatives were willing to speak on the matter. After many entreaties, he finally convinced one of his mom’s brothers to go for a DNA test with him so that he could get a decisive conclusion on the matter.
The DNA laboratory carried out a half-siblingship test between the uncle and nephew and discovered that they are in fact half-siblings. They share the same father and only their mothers are different.
When the news was delivered the man thanked the lab for confirming what he had strongly suspected for the better part of his life. He said that armed with this new indisputable knowledge, no one cn challenge him and take away his birthright.
He also appealed for help for his mother. While he did not state her age, he said that she was very young when the abuse started. The abuse had broken her and scarred her for life. He added that she had never lived a normal life and appears to be suffering from the psychological trauma.
Tilder was shocked by the revelations and asked the mab if his father was involved in occultism or if he consulted traditional healers for money-making rituals. He professed ignorance on the matter. He said he has no idea either way.
