Strange | Man Falls Asleep After R*ping Woman In Her Room

A 65yrs old woman from Nkayi told a court that after r*ping her twice, her alleged r*pist aged 20, told her she now belonged to him. Strangely, he then fell asleep in her blankets.

The woman said the man, who is her neighbour, strangled her and asked her if  Uyajusa (taking ARV medication).

She told the court in a Zimbabwean city that she tried to fight back and bit him on his lower lip, but he overpowered her.

The man, she said, r*ped her while putting on a condom but later tossed it away saying that it disturbed him.

“After he fell asleep in my blankets, I picked up my two-year-old grandchild and fled to my neighbour’s homestead. He woke up and fled before we returned. I am even afraid to sleep in my home or to make eye contact with him because of what he did to me,” she said.

The man pleaded not guilty to r*pe when he appeared before regional magistrate Trynose Utahwashe who remanded him in custody to November 2 for continuation of trial.

He claimed there was no way he could have r*ped the woman as she was the same age as his mother.

He said: “There was no way I could have had an ere-ction for you at your age.”

But the prosecutor, Mr Robin Mukura said the man r*ped the old woman on March 25 when she was sleeping in her homestead. He said he grabbed her by the neck, threatened to axe her and did it.

“After r*ping her, the man fell asleep in the old woman’s bedroom. She fled from her homestead and sought refuge at another neighbour’s homestead,” Mr Mukura said.
