For allegedly detaining and raping a Pastor who came to demand the money one of them was owing him, 3 women who gang-raped this Pastor from a local church in Cowdray Park suburb in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, have been arraigned before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube, and charged with aggravated indecent assault.
It was gathered that Sandra Ncube (21), Riamuhetsi Mlauzi (23) and Mongiwe Mpofu (25) who reside at the same house in Cowdray Park suburb, led the victim into the house before Ncube held him by the waist and fondled his private part.
Here’s what Prosecutor Petros Shoko said;
“On July 14, 2017, at around 7PM, the complainant went to the three accused persons’ residence to collect his money from Riamuhetsi Mlauzi, which she owed him,” said the prosecutor.
“They forced him to lie on the bed and undressed him. Ncube sat on his chest and he tried to push her away. However, Mlauzi, who was in the same room, held his legs together and sat on top, pressing him against the bed,” said Mr Shoko.
Mpofu, who was in another room, allegedly brought condoms and placed one on the complainant’s manhood. She then allegedly assisted to hold the complainant down as he was resisting.
“Ncube had sexual intercourse with the complainant once, without his consent,” said Mr Shoko.
However the suspects denied raping the victim as they claimed they were only playing around, though they admitted indecently assaulting him.
“We were just playing around Your Worship. I did not think that he would take it seriously,” said Ncube.
Mpofu distanced herself from the incident and said she had only been called to bring condoms.
“I was not part of it. They just called me to bring condoms. We keep condoms around the house and there were some in my room, so I just brought them,” said Mpofu.
Mlauzi said she wanted to “fix” the pastor, whom she accused of having a tendency of walking in on her when she was bathing.
Mlauzi said: “He always walks in on me bathing and claims to be unmoved as a man of God. I just wanted to see if he was going to be aroused or not. I did not plan to execute the whole rape thing, Your Worship.”
The Chronicle reports that Magistrate Ncube asked Mlauzi what she aimed to benefit from the attack, and she said she just wanted to prove to the pastor that he had feelings like everybody else.
“I wanted him to see that he was not special and was not immune to sexual arousal. When I touched him, he immediately got aroused. And that is all we wanted to see,” she said.
The matter was reported at Cowdray Park Police Station and the complainant was referred to Mpilo Central Hospital for a medical examination. A medical report was produced in court as evidence.
