Hurungwe man rapes his grandmother several times

A Hurungwe man was last week arraigned before a Karoi magistrate for allegedly raping his 65-year-old grandmother several times during the just ended Easter holiday.
Magistrate Mrs Nyaradzo Ringisayi advised Fidelis Chihaka from Nyahonde village under Chief Mujinga, Hurungwe to apply for bail at the High Court before she remanded him to
April 16.
The court heard that on March 31 this year, Chihaka who stayed with his maternal granny came home late from the beerhall before he knocked at the kitchen hut where the woman was sleeping.
It is alleged the grandmother who had refused to open the door on account of unavailability of matches only complied after Chihaka — who claimed to have some matches — indicated that he was hungry and wanted to prepare himself some food.
Upon opening the door, Chihaka went for his unsuspecting granny whom he raped four times after locking the door from inside.
As he raped the old woman, it is also alleged Chihaka would rest sitting on top of the old woman and pinning her hands to the ground to prevent her from breaking free.
Despite the granny repeatedly imploring him to release her so she could relieve herself outside the hut, Chihaka would have none of it and instead ordered her to urinate in one of the buckets in the hut until he raped her four times.
Chihaka was arrested the following day after his granny took the matter to the village head.
Chihaka had since 2011 been on the police wanted list for cases he committed in the Tengwe area that year.
The cases include escaping from Tengwe Police Charge office, unlawful entry, assault and theft of a bicycle at Tengwe police station.
Mr Webster Dimingo prosecuted.
