Wedza man gets 15 years for raping granny


A 22-year-old Wedza man who last month raped a 73-year-old woman from his neighbourhood was on Wednesday slapped with a 15-year jail term after he pleaded guilty to the rape charge when he appeared before Marondera magistrate Clever Tsikwa.


However, the rapist, who can not be named to protect the victim’s identity, will serve an effective 12-year jail term after three years were set aside on condition of good behaviour.

The court heard that on August 1 this year, the rapist from Chief Ruzane’s area forced his way into the woman’s bedroom and demanded to have sex with her.

The complainant, who then had switched on her torch and positively recognised her assailant resisted the move, but was overpowered and eventually raped.

Soon after the act, the man fled the scene, but was arrested the following day after the matter was reported to the police.


    • ndipo patinotika shandisai bhadhizzo se everlasting mutongo kuvanhu vakadai. 15yrs ishoma dai vakati 30yrs mujeri better.

  1. That is nothing, he needs to be castrated, lets implement zvakataurwa na gushungo thats a gud move. Evry rapist must be castrated bcoz if he goes to jail he can sodomise other prisoners there.

  2. People with such intentions should really be sentenced for life or better yet be hanged. How can one possibly enjoy over powering an old woman for self pleasure? He should rot in jail!!

  3. the young man was over-powered by his sexual thoughts/feelings to this extent? Such an act could have been aided by the influence of drugs. Talk of a clouded mind, which make you see a 73 year-old as a prospective girlfriend. Now that the evil has fled from you. You are exposed. The next 12 years will make you realise how costly 5 seconds could be! Review the laws, for stiffer penalties.
