Community service for false rape report

A TEENAGE girl from Chitungwiza has been slapped with a four-month jail term for filing a false rape report against her brother.

By Sofia Mapuranga

Nyasha Moyo (18) ) was convicted on her own plea of guilty to falsely accusing her brother of raping her. She was, however, spared a custodial term after Chitungwiza magistrate Tafadzwa Miti ordered her to instead perform 105 hours of community service at Seke North Clinic.

Prosecutor Ntombikayise Nleya told the court that on February 3 this year, Moyo filed a rape report at Chitungwiza Police Station, leading to the arrest of her brother.

She later approached one Constable Chindove and pleaded with him to cancel the matter, saying the report was false.

Moyo was made to complete an affidavit form to facilitate the withdrawal of the case, leading to her arrest.

    Uyu musikana was raped but I suspect her relatives asked her to withdraw the case so that his brother will not rote in prison. But this is abuse of the girl child. Can anyone help this girl out. I tell you, this teen girl will die of trauma. Were are women and girl organisations, can you help this teen girl. This is really very bad. The relatives and parents of this girl who caused her to withdraw should be arrested as well
