    Zvishavane robber asks woman to choose between rape and death


    – A suspected Zishavane robber who allegedly raped three women in the process of committing crime is said to have presented one of his victims with two difficult choices, either to get raped or killed.
    Ngonidzashe Shoko of Pope Village, Chief Mazvihwa in Zvishavane has appeared in court facing seven counts, three of rape, three robbery and one count fortheft.
    Shoko allegedly raped a woman at every house that he robbed.
    It is the State case that Shoko broke into a house in the Highlands Suburb of Zvishavane and found a 17-year-old girl sleeping. He stole two cellphones from under the pillow and went and hid them outside.
    He came back, woke up the girl and allegedly dragged her into another room where he at knife-point asked the girl to choose between rape and murder. The frightened girl could only ask for forgiveness but Shoko allegedly went ahead and raped her.
    Shoko raped yet another woman at a house in Lot 2, Makwasha who he ordered to bend down and hold the bed while he had sex with her.
    It is the State case that he found the 24-year-old woman asleep and switched off the lights in the house and went to the complainant's room. He then grabbed her by the throat and threatening to stab her.
    After the rape, he ordered the complainant to take a bath while he watched. The victim later managed to escape and the accused also ran away.
      It is also the State case that on February 23, 2016 and at around 11pm Shoko broke into a 33-year-old woman's house in Makwasha Suburb in Zvishavane using an unknown object.
