Female rapists resurface


Two suspected female rapists have resurfaced in Chiredzi where they reportedly pounced on a stranded commuter and raped him at knifepoint.

Police said the incident occurred on December 25 and involved two unidentified ladies.

It is alleged the pair approached the 25-year-old man who was looking for transport from Chipinge to Chiredzi and sexually abused him at knifepoint.

Manicaland police spokesperson Inspector Leonard Chabata said: “What happened is that the 25-year-old man was offered transport at Madzivire bus stop in Chisumbanje along Ngundu- Tanganda Road by two unknown female adults at around 8pm. The ladies were travelling to Chiredzi where the man was going.”

The man reportedly sat in the back seat where one of the women was seated while the other drove.

“When they reached Ndali area in Chiredzi, the medium-built woman seated in the back started caressing him, Chabata said.

“The victim showed resistance prompting the driver to stop the vehicle. The driver produced a knife and ordered the passenger to have sex with the other woman.

“Fearing for his life the man complied and had unprotected sex once with the suspected female rapist.”

“After their sexual encounter, the driver of the vehicle exchanged seats with the other woman who took the knife and also ordered the man to have sex with the driver.

The man complied again and had unprotected sex with the woman at knifepoint in the back of the vehicle.”

After the alleged sexual abuse, the man was ordered out of the vehicle which immediately sped off leaving him stranded by the roadside in the dead of night.

The incident was reported at Middle Sabi Police Station.
