Court told of Mutsvangwa’s son’s sex­ual de­viance

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Fun­gai Lu­pande Harare Bureau

NEVILLE Mutsvangwa (36) is a gam­bler and he slept with the 43-year-old woman he is ac­cused of rap­ing in his fa­ther’s of­fice, a court heard yes­ter­day.

Neville is the son of Zim­babwe Na­tional Lib­er­a­tion War Vet­er­ans As­so­ci­a­tion chair­man, Mr Christopher Mutsvangwa.

The com­plainant also ac­cused the po­lice of writ­ing things she did not say in her state­ment.

While tes­ti­fy­ing in court, the woman said she did not re­port a rape case but ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault.

“If it was an or­di­nary in­ter­course, I would not have re­ported the mat­ter but he made me suck his dirty man­hood the first time,” she said.

“The sec­ond time he made me suck his man­hood with a blood stained con­dom. He ejac­u­lated in my mouth.

“I have no rea­son to fab­ri­cate a case against him be­cause in May, we had plea­sur­able con­sen­sual in­ter­course in his fa­ther’s of­fice.

“He threat­ened me say­ing he is un­touch­able be­cause his fa­ther is a top govern­ment of­fi­cial ev­i­dent by pic­tures of him, the Pres­i­dent and some Chi­nese on the walls”.

The com­plainant said she gam­bled to­gether with Neville when they met at the casino.

“When he saw me at the casino he said I look Iike a mer­maid and he was go­ing to cam­paign to win me,” she said.

Neville’s lawyer Mr Har­ri­son Nkomo asked if her be­hav­iour of sleep­ing with a man the same day they met was not con­sis­tent with a pros­ti­tute.

“When I met him in May, I had not had sex for a long time and I wanted to sleep with him, I im­me­di­ately agreed and it was plea­sur­able, I en­joyed it,” she replied.

“But on this day I could not have con­sented while on my men­strual pe­riod. I promised him that as soon as I com­plete my pe­riod I was go­ing to agree but he be­came ag­gres­sive.”

Mr Nkomo asked if they phoned each other, vis­ited or ex­changed gifts and the com­plainant said they hadn’t.

“We only met at the casino. That was the na­ture of our re­la­tion­ship.”

Asked why her tes­ti­mony and her state­ment are dif­fer­ent, the com­plainant said she is not con­ver­sant with English and nar­rated to the po­lice in Shona.

“Most of the things they wrote are not what I said,” she said.

The court will pro­ceed to an in­spec­tion in loco at Mutsvangwa’s of­fice af­ter Mr Nkomo said the door to the of­fice does not open from in­side.

Neville is fac­ing two counts of rape and ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault charges.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Mr Ge­orge Manokore al­leged that on Au­gust 8 this year around 6PM, the com­plainant met Neville and they played casino un­til 4AM.

The com­plainant was of­fered a lift to town and at Harare Sports Club, Neville di­verted the route and drove to No. 3 San-Fer­nando along 5th Street.

Neville al­legedly in­serted his man­hood in the com­plainant’s mouth and later forced her to un­dress.

He al­legedly raped her and no­ticed blood be­cause she was men­stru­at­ing.

Neville al­legedly in­serted his man­hood into her mouth again and forced her to suck it.

He of­fered her $20 and the com­plainant re­jected it and pro­ceeded to Harare Cen­tral po­lice sta­tion to re­port the mat­ter.
