60 years for raping niece

People get locked for exercising their constitutional right to freedom of expression

A 51-YEAR-OLD Bindura man was last week slapped with an effective 50-year jail term for raping his 16-year-old niece on five occasions.


Joseph Kanyuchi, a District Development Fund (DDF) employee, was initially sentenced to 60 years by Bindura regional magistrate William Bhila. However, 10 years were set aside on condition of good behaviour.

The court heard that on the first count, sometime in February last year, Kanyuchi summoned the complainant into his bedroom and demanded to have sex with her or else he would throw her out of his Glendale home. When the complainant spurned his sexual advances, Kanyuchi muffled her mouth and raped her.

He again repeated the same act on an unknown date, but in the same month.

He later gave the complainant $1 to repair her skirt which had been torn during the act.

The court heard that Kanyuchi kept raping the girl each time his wife was away and at one time, bought the complainant two mobile phones in an attempt to buy her silence.

But in February this year, the girl felt she had had enough and spilled the beans to Kanyuchi’s wife, leading to his arrest.

In his defence, Kanyuchi told the court that the allegations were trumped up, saying there was never a time the complainant and himself were left home alone.

But the court dismissed his defence, saying the complainant had provided irrefutable evidence.

  3. there should be consistency in the sentences meted by the magistrates. In Gumbura’s case, the magistrate blamed the law for limiting him from imposing stiffer sentences and eleven counts of rape attracted only forty years but in Kanyuchi’s case sixty years. Gumbura should have been given six hundred and sixty years.
