Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Tanaka Mrewa

A KOMBI driver from Bu­l­awayo has been ar­rested for al­legedly rap­ing his lover’s 17-yearold lit­tle sis­ter.

A court on Thurs­day heard how Nqobani Ncube (27) of Nketa 7 sub­urb went into the teenager’s room and woke her up claim­ing that he wanted to send some videos from her cell­phone.

He then cov­ered her mouth with his hand and al­legedly raped her once. Ncube was not asked to plead when he ap­peared be­fore Western Com­mon­age Mag­is­trate Miss Tancy Dube fac­ing a charge of rape. He was re­manded in cus­tody to Au­gust 17. Pros­e­cut­ing, Ms Ma­gret Takawira said Ncube cov­ered the teenager’s mouth with his hand and raped her once.

“Ac­cused went into the com­plainant’s bed­room and asked for her cell­phone claim­ing that he wanted to send some videos. Com­plainant fell asleep while ac­cused was still in her room.

“He sud­denly cov­ered her mouth with his hand and raped her once,” said Ms Takawira.

She added: “Com­plainant nar­rated her or­deal to her friend. Her friend told her aunt who re­ported the mat­ter to the teenager’s aunt. The mat­ter was re­ported to the po­lice by the teenager’s aunt.”

In her state­ment, the com­plainant said af­ter the in­ci­dent, her sis­ter came to her room sum­mon­ing her boyfriend to their bed­room but he re­fused claim­ing that he was still send­ing some videos.

“As my sis­ter left the room, Nqobani wore his trousers but she did not no­tice be­cause my room has no light. I told my friend about the in­ci­dent the fol­low­ing morn­ing and she told her aunt who called my aunt and told her,” read the state­ment — @tan­nytkay.
