Wife helps hubby rape sister (13)

HARARE - A Norton woman has appeared before a Harare magistrate facing charges of assisting her husband rape her 13-year-old sister.

Rosina Langson, 49, together with her 65-year-old husband Business Chigama, appeared before magistrate Tendai Mahwe on Friday charged with rape.

Mahwe freed the duo on $50 bail each.

According to State papers, the incident took place in March last year, when Langson approached the teenager and told her that she was supposed to have sex with Chigama.

She told the girl that she was no longer in a position to have sex with her husband because she was experiencing abdominal pains.

The court heard the girl refused to have sex with the 65-year-old man, despite Langson’s attempt to take the teenager into her bedroom.

It is alleged that the girl ran away and only returned home at 10pm.

As the girl entered the house, she saw the couple waiting for her. Langson allegedly carried the girl into the bedroom, threatening to assault her if she refused to have sex with her husband.

Chigama allegedly gave his wife some blankets to sleep on the floor, while he and the teenager slept on the bed.

The teenager only woke up to find Chigama tearing her skirt and pant, while Langson was pinning her legs down.

Chigama allegedly raped the girl. After the act, it is alleged, Langson told the girl that she was to have sex with Chigama for six more days.

According to State papers, Chigama had sex with the girl for the next six days, while being assisted by his wife who was holding the girl’s legs.

The court heard that the girl started staying with her brother in Harare’s Epworth suburb in January this year. The girl informed one of her sisters of the rape.

The matter was only reported to the police on January 25, this year, leading to the couple’s arrest.

Mahwe remanded the duo to February 24.
