British national acquitted of rape

HARARE - A Zimbabwe-based British national who was accused of raping a 22-year-old woman has been acquitted.

Khwaja Hisha, 32, of number 17 Cosmos avenue, Ridgeview in Harare, was acquitted of rape charges last Friday after the State failed to prove a prima facie case against him.

Hisha produced pictures taken during his encounter with Silethemba Ndlovu which proved that no one was forced.

It was proved that Ndlovu tried to extort $5 000 from Hisha and had also lied to the court that she was 19 when she was in fact 22.

The State had alleged that on March 23, Hisha approached the woman at her Marlborough residence around 7pm in connection with a clothing business.

Hisha reportedly drove the woman to his residence in Belvedere where he wanted to show her the clothing samples but did not do so. The complainant claimed he forced himself on her.

But Hisha was acquitted after a full trial and is now suing Ndlovu.

Gumbura was also lied against. The young women lied their ages. The young women were never touched by Gumbura but they self confessed that 'zvekurara nevarume vakazvijaira from school'. Why do people get so cruel at Gumbura and turn a deaf ear to the extent of not verifying these truths.
