Obert Chiweda (18), Titus Funganjera, (19) and a 17-year-old (name withheld) appeared before Harare magistrate Marewanazvo Gofa for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl from Budiriro
Allegations are that last Saturday at around 7 pm, the 16-year-old victim was coming from Budiriro when she met her boyfriend, the 17-year-old, who was with Chiweda.
The two asked her to accompany them to Mashwede and she agreed.
The State asserts that when they got there, they bought an alcoholic drink which they mixed with a soft drink before they gave her to drink and she got drunk.
The duo allegedly hired a taxi to the girl’s home in Glen View where Funganjera also resides.
When they got to the house, they took the girl into Funganjera’s bedroom and took turns raping her without protection.
The girl screamed, but no one came to her rescue, and she reported the matter to her uncle the following day and he accompanied her to make a police report, leading to the trio’s arrest.
The girl was medically examined and a medical affidavit was obtained.
The 17-year-old boy was released into the custody of his guardians, while his two accomplices were remanded in custody and advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
