Deaf man up for attempted rape
A MBARE deaf man has been hauled to court by his neighbour who caught him on top of her eight-year-old daughter intending to rape her.
Shadreck Hwema, 31, pleaded guilty when he appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa facing charges of attempted rape.
Hwema was granted $50 bail and the matter was remanded to April 9 for trial.
The State led by Sebastian Mutizirwa alleges that on March 14 at around 9pm at Nenyere Flats, the accused was accompanied by the complainant to his home to collect her mother’s money.
Upon arrival at Hwema’s place of residence, the accused closed the door and played pornographic videos in the presence of the complainant.
Further allegations are that Hwema grabbed the complainant by the waist and laid her on his bed whilst he was removing his pair of trousers.
The court heard that the accused slept on top of the complainant and before proceeding to rape the complainant, her mother knocked at the door.
Realising that there was no response, the complainant’s mother pushed the door only to find the complainant lying on the bed without her pants and the accused hurriedly trying to put on his trousers.
The complainant’s mother asked Hwema what was happening and how he could watch pornographic videos in the presence of an eight-year-old child.
Hwema did not respond but instead went on to switch off his television and ordered the complainant’s mother to leave his house.
The complainant revealed to her mother what had transpired and she went back to confront the accused in his house where she discovered her daughter’s pants inside Hwema’s wardrobe.
A complaint was lodged with the police at Mbare by the complaint’s mother which led to Hwema’s arrest.
The knickers were produced in court as evidence as well as the porn disc.
