Prophet ex­poses rapist

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Tanaka Mrewa

A PLUMTREE man has been ar­raigned for al­legedly rap­ing his 14-year-old step­daugh­ter thrice while her mother was in hos­pi­tal.

The mat­ter came to light af­ter a prophet told the mother that the Holy Spirit had re­vealed to him that her hus­band had sex­ual in­ter­course with her daugh­ter.

Pi­nos Moyo (39) was not asked to plead to a charge of rape when he ap­peared be­fore Bu­l­awayo mag­is­trate Miss Eve­lyn Mashavakure.

He was re­manded Septem­ber 29.

State al­le­ga­tions are that Moyo raped his step­daugh­ter, who can­not be named in cus­tody to for eth­i­cal rea­sons, while her mother was at a ma­ter­nity hos­pi­tal for check up.

Prose­cut­ing, Mr Nkat­hazo Dlodlo, said: “The ac­cused per­son raped the com­plainant on three oc­ca­sions. They were shar­ing a room. On the first oc­ca­sion, he dragged the com­plainant from her blan­kets on the floor to his bed. He re­moved his and her clothes and raped her once”.

He added: “On the last two counts, the ac­cused per­son would sneak into the com­plainant’s blan­kets. He threat­ened to as­sault her with a switch in the event that she told any­one about the rape. The com­plainant’s mother was ap­proached by a prophet who told her that her hus­band had sex­ual in­ter­course with her daugh­ter. She con­fronted the ac­cused and he ad­mit­ted.” — @tan­nytkay
