A 38-YEAR-OLD Shurugwi man allegedly raped his neighbours’ 10-year-old daughter while his wife watched.

Daniso Sibanda of Ruzive Village, Chief Banga in Shurugwi, a court heard, first had unprotected sex with his wife in their bedroom while the complainant — a Grade Five pupil — watched the action.

With his wife’s permission, Sibanda allegedly went on to rape the girl once without using protection. Sibanda appeared before Gweru Regional Magistrate Mr Morgan Nemadire facing one count of rape.

He pleaded not guilty and the magistrate remanded him in custody to October 3 for trial.

Prosecuting Mr Kelvin Guvheya told the court that sometime in February, Sibanda was resting in his bedroom hut when his wife in the company of the complainant entered.
Mr Guvheya said Sibanda got up from the bed and told his wife that he wanted to be intimate with her while the minor watched.
“Sibanda had sexual intercourse with his wife in the presence of the complainant,” he said.
The court heard that Sibanda told his wife that he was now going to have sex with the minor.

Mr Guvheya said Sibanda turned to the complainant and forcibly removed her undergarments and allegedly raped the girl once without using protection while his wife watched.

He said after the rape, Sibanda and his wife ordered the complainant to go back to her homestead.

“The matter came to light when the complainant’s mother noticed that her daughter was experiencing some difficulties in walking before she interrogated her. The complainant narrated her ordeal before the matter was reported to the police leading to the arrest of Sibanda,” said Mr Guvheya. Chronicle
