Man ‘rapes’ married sister in her sleep


Sukulwenkosi Dube-Matutu, Plumtree Correspondent
A 55-YEAR-OLD Plumtree man allegedly raped his married younger sister while she was sleeping alone at her house during her husband’s absence.

The man who cannot be named for ethical reasons was not asked to plead when he appeared before Plumtree magistrate, Mr Taurai Manwere facing rape charges.

He was remanded in custody to October 20.

Prosecuting, Mr Charles Nyatsine said the man who is from Dingumuzi Suburb raped his 38-year-old sister on July 28.

“On 28 July at night the man went to the complainant’s house where she was sleeping alone. He opened an unlocked door and gained entry into the house,” he said.

“The woman woke up after she felt the weight of someone on her. She noticed that it was her brother. He pressed her down against the bed to stop her from fleeing and raped her once. The man then warned his sister against reporting the matter and he fled from the homestead.”

Mr Nyatsine said the woman went to visit her husband in Botswana and told him what had transpired. The complainant’s husband accompanied her back into the country and they reported the matter at Plumtree Police Station resulting in the man’s arrest.

      I know the man. He is a Shona that lives there in Plumtree.

        I doubt it. Shonas dont do things like that! Raping is the sole preserve of MaNdex.

        • Saul

          I know him well. He is definitely a Shona.

    let’s play a little guessing game here…. guess the gentle persuasion this so-called man was?

    Not named for ethical reasons?

    Am I to guess that this means he is black – and you want to let people think it might have been a white person that did such a thing?

    So, I am guessing his name wasn’t Bill Smith, Or Fred Bloggs, but perhaps was a little more “ethnic”.

    It is the same in the UK, if the person is white or asian – they always say so – if the criminal is black they always withhold the race – it isn’t a difficult “code” to work out though – or at least not for white people…… ;)
