    Traditional healer rapes client’s daughter (14) during rituals


    GWANDA - A traditional healer hired to perform rituals at a homestead in Mathabisa area in Filabusi ended up raping his client’s 14-year-old daughter, Gwanda Regional Magistrate Mark Dzira has been told.
    Dumezweni Nsumbane from Bethel in Guyu is facing charges of raping the girl at Andrew Moyo’s homestead.
    The case only emerged after the girl became pregnant and an aunt quizzed her.
    The complainant told the court that as part of the rituals they were smeared with muti on their backs and asked to kneel on the floor. After that they were allegedly told to go to bed naked but the accused allegedly followed the complainant into the blankets and had sex with her without her consent.
    The accused later followed the complainant to school where he left a Dollar to share with her sibling.
    All hell broke loose in February 2019 when Siphethile Moyo (the complainant’s aunt) observed that the complainant’s body was bulging with breasts increasing in size. Moyo reported the matter to the complainant’s father who in turn made a Police report.
    Abel Ndlovu who represented the accused told the court that on September 26, 2018 the accused went to Andrew Moyo’s homestead to perform traditional duties only. His application for acquittal was dismissed by the State.
    The matter was remanded to June 6, 2019 for sentencing.
    Mncedisi Dube prosecuted.
