ZBC manager up for rape

PROMINENT Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) manager and radio announcer Simon Pashoma Ncube yesterday appeared at the Chivhu Magistrates’ Court charged with raping a 15-year-old girl at Frontline Hotel in November last year.

CHARLES LAITON

Ncube (56) was remanded in custody to tomorrow for trial after his bail application was dismissed by resident magistrate Archie Wochiunga.

The Radio Zimbabwe announcer is being charged with one count of rape or alternatively having sexual intercourse with a minor.

According to the State case, the incident leading to Ncube’s arrest occurred on November 8 last year after he allegedly made a love proposal to the minor while at Nharira business centre.

Ncube was in the company of a friend and workmate identified as Clifford Makonese.

Prosecutor Nicholas Mabvongodze submitted that after proposing love to the minor, Ncube and Makonese drove her to Frontline Hotel where they proceeded to a room which they had booked.

The State alleges that when Ncube and the girl entered the room, Makonese locked the door from outside and disappeared with the keys, leaving the girl at the mercy of the former DJ.

The court heard that Ncube tore the girl’s skirt and panties and raped her once.

After the initial encounter, it is alleged, Ncube had sexual intercourse with the girl twice again during the same night.

The court further heard, during the early hours of the following morning, Ncube contacted Makonese on his mobile phone who then unlocked the hotel room before giving the girl a blanket to cover herself.

The girl fingered Ncube after being quizzed by her uncle and mother over where she had spent the night.

The irate parents then reported the matter to the police, leading to Ncube’s arrest.

    From my own views it was consectual. How can a disabled Pashoma rape a physically fit lady. Why is it that she failed to scream for help? Driven all the way from Nharira why then did she accepted to enter a lodge with a stranger? Maybe Pashoma can be charged for having a sexual intercourse with a minor only.

    1. Consensual! CHAKAZA revise your viewpoint.

    2. @CHAKAZA,if it was consensual,sei akabvarura hembe ne pantie?disability does not mean inability to rape or have sex or rape.ko mukadzi wa Pashoma chirema here?iko kukiya door nekunze munhu oenda nema keys for the whole night inotori sign yekufosa munhu zvaasingadi.ndokuti indeginisation kana woman empowerment kauku according to z..”

    LUKE MBUNE uri benzi. Chimboenda kuLibrary unoverenga mabhuku. There is no consent where an underage girl is concerned. That’s why its caled ”age of consent”. At 15 she CANT GIVE consent.
    You’re an idiot if you think a man with a disability cannot commit rape. What you said is the same as saying a person with a disability can’t have a job or a wife. Ukambobatwa kwiyo nemunhu weWheelchair basketball ndipo pauchaziva kuti a man is a man even without feet.

    Uri duzvi mupfana.

  21. It says “Ncube contacted makonese on his mobile n he came to open e door”. its clear kuti they all ‘ad there hands in blood…… its rape.

  22. She thot she was going for a prayer session with two men at lodge,the parents must c it as it is,it wasn’t her first tym to go out with older men,Pashoma was just stupid for kiping her the whole nyt achafire izvozvo.The girl is a pro she knew Wat she was getting herself into en she wanted them both.
