Land­lord ‘rapes’ ten­ant’s daugh­ter as wife cooks out­side

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Tanaka Mrewa

A MAN from Nguboyenja sub­urb in Bulawayo al­legedly dragged his ten­ant’s daugh­ter (11) into his bed­room while his wife was cook­ing on a fire out­side and raped her.

Bulawayo mag­is­trate Mr Ti­nashe Tashaya yes­ter­day did not ask Si­mon Ncube (64) to plead to a rape charge and re­manded him in cus­tody to 16 Novem­ber.

Prose­cut­ing, Mr Tau­rai Hon­doye­moto told the court that on Au­gust 28 last year around 9AM, Ncube was in the house with the mi­nor while his wife and the mi­nor’s sib­lings were out­side.

“Ac­cused per­son leapt from his sofa as the mi­nor passed him in the sit­ting room. He cov­ered her mouth with his hand. He dragged her to his bed­room and raped her once,” said Mr Hon­doye­moto.

He said the girl re­ported the mat­ter to her mother when she re­turned home and a po­lice re­port was made. — @tan­nytkay.
