Punish rapists heavily

EDITOR — As one goes through the newspapers  these days, one only seems to read about more and more cases of rape.

I think Zimbabwe as a country is going through a dark period in which men are raping women and children of all ages.

It no longer matters these days whether one is a man of God or any ordinary man, it seems rape has all of a sudden become fashionable.

I think men should pride themselves in being able to approach and convince a woman or girl to have a relationship rather than resort to force.

I am sure as a woman I would like a man who convinces me to have a sexual relationship with him than for him to trick or force me into having sex without my consent.

I know the courts are having a torrid time in trying to handle these cases that seem to be on the increase on a daily basis.

I believe that even stiffer punishment must be given to these rapist to curb the problem.

I would like to applaud the women for coming out in the open and reporting some of these cases as they seek justice to be done.

Let us all as Zimbabweans work together to do away with this problem that seems to be growing in this country.
