CHIGUDO GUDO JAILED 14 YEARS
Zim Dancehall artiste Joseph “Chihomuhomu-Chigudogudo” Mutamba was yesterday sentenced to 18 years in prison for raping a 14-year-old girl who was a fellow tenant at his place of residence.
Mutamba was convicted after a full trial by a regional magistrate Hosea Mujaya. In his ruling, Mujaya castigated Mutamba for being a musician who claimed to sing against child marriages but went on to take advantage of the trust a child had in him and raped her.
The State, led by George Manokore, proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the complainant was at their shared home when Mutamba called her and asked her to sweep his room. The Court, through the complainant’s testimony, heard that she agreed as Mutamba promised to give her money.
When the complainant entered the room, she asked Mutamba to leave and he complied. While the complainant was sweeping, Mutamba suddenly came back into the room and locked the door.
It was proved that Mutamba suddenly produced a knife and told the complainant to drink some juice which was in a glass on the table, threatening her with a knife. After the complainant had finished the drink, Mutamba once again forced her to smoke dagga, which he was smoking, and when the complainant tried to resist, Mutamba once again threatened her.
Mutamba then told the complainant to lie on the bed and he removed his clothes and raped her. When he had finished raping her, the complainant’s mother started looking for her and knocked on Mutamba’s door.
He shoved the complainant into his wardrobe, threatening her with the knife. However, the complainant’s mother managed to search the house and found her daughter in the wardrobe.
She then told her mother that she had been raped by Mutamba and her mother reported the matter to the police, leading to Mutamba’s arrest.
Mutamba denied the allegations, claiming that the complainant’s mother was fabricating everything as it appeared that she wanted him to marry her daughter and also tried to discredit the witness saying that she was of loose morals as she had been married three times and even claimed that she had had abortions.
Mutamba was sentenced to 18 years in prison and four were suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar offense in the next five years.
