A MAN from Pu­mula in Bu­l­awayo al­legedly raped his niece and her friend aged six and eight re­spec­tively.

The man (41) al­legedly raped the two chil­dren at his home where he stays with his niece.

His trial is set to be­gin be­fore re­gional mag­is­trate Mr Chrispen Mberewere on Au­gust 10.

Pros­e­cut­ing Mr Sim­barashe Manyiwa al­leges that some­time in Jan­uary, the man spot­ted the two girls play­ing in the yard and called his niece’s friend into the house.

“He then closed his bed­room door and un­dressed the girl be­fore rap­ing her once. Af­ter­wards, he or­dered the girl to dress up and leave his room. The girl in­formed a man who stays near her home,” said Mr Manyiwa.
