PROMINENT Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) manager and radio announcer Simon Pashoma Ncube, who is accused of raping a 15-year-old girl at Frontline Hotel in Chivhu, was yesterday released from custody on $100 bail.

SENIOR COURT REPORTER

The Radio Zimbabwe announcer, who is being represented by Lucky Mauwa, was allowed to be tried from home after the Prosecutor General’s Office consented to his release on bail.

As part of his bail conditions, Pashoma was ordered not to interfere with known State witnesses and to reside at his house in Chitungwiza until the finalisation of the matter.

Ncube (56) was on Tuesday this week remanded in custody after his bail application was dismissed by resident magistrate Archie Wochiunga.

His trial is set to start on February 27.

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

  1. This story is so shallow, I doubt it was authored by a trained reporter whose calling should be to inform the public.

    • I thought the full story is in the Newsday of 12 February. This is just a follow up article so why do you want the journalist to repeat the whole story if it was carried in the same paper only on Wednesday. Those who read the Newsday are well informed and this is enough information. Tough luck to you kana wabatira nyaya pamberi

  2. Mr reporter can you not tell us more about this story. It’s just to shallow. Are you still a student on attachment at this paper?

  3. Innocent until proven guilty. There is a lot of missing information on the rape charges. Is it pure rape case or some grapes went sour? Journalists please dig for more information on this rape charge.
