    Mwenezi rapist comes to court in school uniform to disguise age


    MWENEZI – A 22-year-old Mwenezi man charged with statutory rape almost succeeded to disguise his age when he came to court wearing a high school uniform.
    Talkmore Mbedzi (22) of Village 2, Zvirikure under Chief Neshuro told Resident Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa that he was 18 after coming to court in Budirirai High School uniform.
    He raped and impregnated a 15-year-old girl and the matter came to light when he tried to convince the complainant to illegally terminate the pregnancy.
    All people including some court officials were convinced that Mbedzi was a student but a curious Resident Musiiwa poked holes into the accused’s evidence when he stammered on being asked the name of the school head. The Magistrate then asked for the accused’s identity card to which he said he had a birth certificate but he had left it in Mberengwa.
    Further verifications revealed that he was not a student and was actually 22 years of age.
    Musiiwa slapped him with a 25 months jail sentence and 10 months were suspended for five years on condition that he does not commit a similar crime.
    The State said the accused proposed love to the minor who is doing Form 1 on January 12, 2019 and had intercourse with the complainant without her consent.
    After some time, the complainant told Mbedzi that she was pregnant and he told her to get rid of the pregnancy. The juvenile refused and reviewed the matter to her parents leading to the arrest of the accused.
