'She enticed me your worship'

BULAWAYO - A 71-year-old Hope Fountain man has been arraigned before  the courts for raping his 14-year-old niece whom he claimed enticed him by indecently exposing herself.

Daniel Sibanda pleaded guilty to the rape charge when he appeared before Bulawayo regional court magistrate Collet Ncube but argued that the complainant lured him to rape her.

“The complainant called me to her room and I found her legs wide open so I thought she had called me for sex,” Sibanda told the magistrate who remanded him in custody up to March 20.

The court heard that on October 12, 2013, Sibanda entered the girl’s room saying he wanted to retrieve his trousers.

He seized the Grade 7 pupil in a stranglehold on her neck using his pair of trousers, took her sister’s skirt and tied her hands.

The complainant started crying but Sibanda did not relent.

The court further heard that Sibanda then removed the girls underpant and raped her once and left.

The young girl told her aunt who merely cautioned him but the girl related her ordeal to her headmistress who called Childline.

The complainant was taken to the hospital and the matter was reported to the police, leading to Sibanda’s arrest.

People need to be educated about this rape issue. Many rape cases are not reported because close relatives fear the accused will go to jail. What surprises me is that a fellow woman does not feel for the raped girl. How can a normal person protect a rapist. Women organisation, please rise up and face this challenge.
