Man sodomises sleeping vagrant

HARARE - A Harare man who allegedly sneaked on a mentally retarded vagrant, sodomised him before threatening him with death has been locked in remand prison.

John Kazhanje, 42, appeared before magistrate Anita Tshuma yesterday on aggravated indecent assault charges.

Prosecutor Tungamirai Chakurira told the court Kazhanje sneaked on the vagrant, who was sleeping in Harare’s Dzivaresekwa suburb last month, removed his clothes and began sodomising him.

According to the prosecution, Kazhanje did not stop even after the vagrant woke up.

Instead, he threatened the vagrant with death if the matter was reported to police, the prosecution stated.

The vagrant, however, reported the matter to police leading to Kazhanje’s arrest.

Magistrate Tshuma remanded Kazhanje in custody to December 19 for trial. - Ivan Zhakata
