GWERU – A sister-in-law (mainini) who is accusing Zanu PF Central Committee Member Saviyasi Piki (46) of raping her told a Gweru Magistrate that her evidence against the accused is that she knows his organ which is circumcised.
The 18-year-old complainant momentarily disarmed Piki and sent the court into stitches when she retorted to her brother-in-law, "You have a circumcised organ".
Piki who did not refute the physical appearance of his organ could only say that his sister-in-law gave such evidence because she knew that many men were getting circumcised these days.
Ironically Piki is married to the complainant's two elder sisters and he stays with his wives in Chirumanzu, according to evidence given in the court.
The complainant described Piki's organ after the magistrate gave the accused a chance to ask questions to the complainant and prove his innocence. Piki then told the complainant that she had no evidence that he raped her.
It is then that the complainant told the accused that his organ was circumcised.
It is the State case that sometime in January 2015 Piki raped his sister-in-law twice. On the first occasion the complainant was asked to clean the bedroom by her sister and Piki allegedly demanded sex from her because he was looking after her.
He allegedly said he wanted his share from the sister-in-law before she got married to some other man.
The accused allegedly had sexual intercourse with the complainant once on this day without her consent.
On the second occasion Piki found the complainant naked bathing and he allegedly lifted her and had sexual intercourse with her on the bed without her consent.
The complainant said that she revealed the alleged rape to her sister, one of Piki's wives but the later told her not to disclose it to anyone.
The complainant became suicidal and disclosed the alleged rape after being quizzed.crime news
