Tout up for rape

A Kambuzuma tout was on Wednesday brought before the court accused of raping his landlord’s 10-year-old daughter.

The suspect, Ivan Evidence Ngundu was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Judith Taruvinga who remanded him in custody to October 28 and referred him to the High Court for bail consideration.

Prosecutor Sebastian Mutizirwa told the court in March this year, and at around 1pm Ngundu called the complainant into his bedroom so that she could watch television and ordered her to sit on a bucket next to his bed then began fondling her breasts.

He reportedly then told her to remove her underwear and she complied then raped her and after that he threatened to kill her if she disclosed the incident to her mother.

On the second count, Ngundu called the minor again into his room and raped her once without protection.

On count three, Ngundu called the girl into his room and forced her to touch his manhood then raped her and after raping her offered her roasted liver so as that she wouldn’t tell anyone.

The rape reportedly continued on several occasions that the complainant does not remember and the matter came to light after the complainant’s aunt saw Ngundu hugging the girl outside the gate and then told the girl’s mother.

When the mother interviewed her, she revealed the rape incidents and a police report was made.
