    Mucheke barber arrested for raping juvenile


    MASVINGO - A 39-year-old barber who operates from Sisk Business Center in Masvingo's old suburb of Mucheke has been arrested for keeping a 13-year-old girl at his lodgings for three days and raping her on several occassions.
    Mike Mapfumo appeared before Masvingo Provincial Magistrate Purity Gumbo facing a charge of rape. Allegations are that on June 16, 2017 the accused met the juvenile in the evening and offered her shelter since she was away from home. They proceeded to Mapfumo's place of residence where they slept for the night.
    The following day, the girl spent the day at Mapfumo's place while he was at his workplace. Mapfumo came back that night and allegedly had unprotected sex with the minor once without her consent. Mapfumo repeated the same act on the third day and the juvenile did not tell anyone about the issue and spent three more days at Mapfumo's residential place having sex with the accused.
    It is the State case that the matter came to light when the complainant was spotted by her school mates playing at the accused's place and they reported the matter to the father and then to the Police. Mapfumo was remanded in custody to July 6, 2017.
    Fidelicy Nyamukondiwa prosecuted.
