Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Than­deka Moyo Court Reporter

A 94-YEAR-OLD man from Sipepa in Tsholot­sho al­legedly raped his men­tally un­sta­ble niece and his evil act was ex­posed by two ju­ve­niles who saw him rap­ing the 13-year-old girl.

The old man lured his niece to his home­stead say­ing he wanted to give her a pair of new school shoes, only to rape her.

The man who can­not be named to pro­tect the iden­tity of the mi­nor is fac­ing rape charges.

Pros­e­cu­tors al­lege that he called his niece to his home on Jan­uary 30 at around 4PM and two ju­ve­niles who saw him rap­ing the girl told their un­cle who reported the mat­ter to the po­lice.

“The man sum­moned her to his bed­room where he told her to re­move her pant and have in­ter­course with her. He had in­ter­course with her once and the two were caught by two ju­ve­niles.

“The two girls in­formed their un­cle that they found the nona­ge­nar­ian hav­ing in­ter­course with the girl. A re­port was made to the po­lice lead­ing to his ar­rest,” reads the out­line.

The girl was taken to Tsholot­sho District Hos­pi­tal where a med­i­cal re­port was com­piled and it would be pro­duced at the Bu­l­awayo Re­gional Court as ev­i­dence. — @thamamoe
