Police officer allegedly rapes fellow cop’s wife

KWEKWE — Police Constable Robert Dzonge is in trouble over allegations of raping his colleague’s wife on April Fool’s Day in Redcliff this year.


Dzonge, who appeared before a police disciplinary hearing last Thursday, is being charged with breaching the Police Act by “Acting in an unbecoming or disorderly manner or in any manner prejudicial to good order or discipline or reasonably likely to bring discredit to the police”.

According to an internal charge sheet seen by NewsDay, Dzonge, who is currently stationed at ZRP Beitbridge Canine, is alleged to have forced himself on the wife of his fellow police officer in a bush near Nhamo Bridge in Rutendo, Redcliff, on April 1. Besides the internal disciplinary hearing, Dzonge is also facing a criminal rape charge in court.

Dzonge is accused of waylaying his victim who was on her way to Rutendo suburb using a path through a bushy area and forcibly had sex with her.

“The accused forcibly pulled up the complainants skirt and pulled down her skin tight and pant. He then had sexual intercourse with his victim without her consent,” the charge sheet read in part.

Dzonge then promised to send his victim R200 the following day through Ecocash once he was back at his base in Beitbridge.

According to the charge sheet, Dzonge’s victim did not proceed to Rutendo suburb, but instead went back home to her husband.

“Upon arrival at home complainant was asked by husband as to what had happened to her since an unknown caller had already informed him that the accused had dragged her into a bush,” reads the charge sheet. A rape case was then reported to the police.

Dzonge’s lawyer Caroline Mugabe confirmed that she and her client had appeared before the police disciplinary committee.

“It is true my client is facing the said charges and appeared before a disciplinary committee suffice to say he denies the allegations leveled against him. I will not say much,” she said.

The matter is expected to continue today with Dzonge presenting his defence.

      Don’t waste your time talking politics when others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how a Zimbabwean poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accidented cars, Very interesting idea. Go to (ACCIDENTEDCARS.COM) to see the various methods and companies she was using (ACCIDENTEDCARS.COM). A very simple idea but very realistic. WAKE UP AFRICANS

    No rape here. These pple were in love but the fact that someone 4ned the woman’s husband, the woman had no option but 2 tell her husband who already new that è two had sexual intercourse. Of course the woman fears divorce if she tells her hubby that they were in love.

      There’s no rape here. The two consented to have sexual intercourse only somebody witnessed the act and reported it to the husband. The wife feared divorce and just thought to sacrifice the boyfriend.

    So the husband of the victim discovered through an unknown caller that his wife had been raped.Upon arrival from the rape experience ,the wife did not volunteer the information , but had to be asked by the husband who was already in the know.It is probable the the wife anticipated the R200.Who is the complainant here, wife or husband?It seems to me that this was an exposed consensual sex.The competent courts will do their job and the unfortunate one will be charged with rape and lose employment.But deep down his heat, the husband knows that he has used brutal tricks to get at this adulterer.Deep down in her heart, this wife knows the truth.This brutal lie will not save her marriage and reputation.

    Thre is norape here ,ths two had agreed why she didn’t screem?is it easy to remove a woman ‘s skin tight and her skirt and then rape her?if she is a 5 years child then she waz raped and if she is a woman according 2 story facts then lets get ths staight no rape but the officer is mow a victim of rape fabrication and he is likely to spend his last miserable days in jail:warning:ppliz stay away from somebody ‘s wife ,why someone’s wife taking into consideration that there are so many single ladies all over the country vari kutofa nechikara.stay away from someone ‘s wife i reapeat

    • xyz May 30, 2013 at 6:31 am #

      If it was really rape she would have screamed for help and this unkown caller who later called her husband would have come to her rescue , this woman was probably having an affair with this guy

    Ava vawiri wakadanana kare kare. Akafumura gure rese ndiye akaita makuhwa nephone. The husband is a fool to believe that stupid rape story. Of course the husband has to try and hide the shame of another police church mouse bedding his wench. But the offending policeman ari ku Beit Bridge kumafuro manyoro. He was to send $200 by ecocash. Who do you think gave him the phone numbers?

    The complainant and her husband should be arrested for extortion.They have aagrred to manufacture a story of two people who were in love when the husband had divorced her so called wife.The husbanda was paid 2000.00 rands as compansation.On realising that he could make more money he went on to demand a truck which the accused refused.Police need to get to the botton of this matter to avoid miscarriage of justice.

    Gukurahundi and the 1979 Shona Gukurahundi ZANU PF Satanic Verses should be included in Zimbabwe’s history books.

    They want this Gukurahundis buried in the name of keeping the peace and their Gukurahundi Unity –so they can continue with their one sided history books so as to create the impression of them being the only victims in Africa, and everyone else as evil – hell no!!!
