Step mum rapes, infects son

MASVINGO - A 40-year-old Chiredzi woman who raped and infected her mentally-challenged stepson with a sexually transmitted disease, stunned a Masvingo magistrate when she said she was having an affair with the teenager because his father spent too much time away from home.

Respina Mukanduri appeared before Masvingo magistrate, Judith Zuyu facing charges of aggravated sexual assault to the hapless mentally-ill teenage boy who is her stepson.

Mukanduri however, denied the charges saying they were lovers.

It is the State’s case that sometime in November last year. Mukanduri lured the boy into having sexual intercourse with her one night while his father was away.

The court heard that on that day Mukanduri allegedly convinced the boy that she was afraid of sleeping alone in her matrimonial bedroom and wanted to spend the night with him.

It was further alleged that she followed the boy into his bedroom and stripped naked.

She then ordered the boy to remove his clothes and they slept together in his bed and had sexual intercourse.

The stepmother allegedly continued to abuse the boy while his father was away and told him that he was taking over his father’s role.

Luck however, ran out on Mukanduri when the boy became ill and was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection.

The teenager was forced to spill the beans and fingered his stepmother.

A police report was made leading to the arrest of Mukanduri. She was remanded to April 21.
