    Chivhu taxi driver had an affair with a grade 5 pupil


    – William Matimba (45) who is employed as a taxi driver in Chivhu has been remanded in prison for allegedly raping and impregnating a 13-year-old form one pupil.
    Matimba is alleged to have raped his friend's daughter. The friend was also his employer, according to court records.
    Matimba who appeared before Magistrate Denis Mangosi last week on Thursday will spend the next one-and-half weeks behind bars after he was remanded in custody to July 21.
    The State representative was Nicholas Mabvongodze.
    Allegations are that Matimba had an affair with the minor since she was in grade five. The affair was only discovered this year with the minor now in form one, according to information from the courts.
    Matimba however, faces three counts of rape.
    On the first count, the complainant met Matimba on her way home from school and she entered into the accused's vehicle so that he could take her home. The accused person then drove to a road that leads to Chivhu cemetery and parked at the side of the road.
    Matimba allegedly raped the girl from the back seat.
    On the second count, the accused again picked the girl and drove along Marondamashanu Road where he again parked by the road side and allegedly raped the girl.
    In November, he picked the girl and allegedly raped her along Nyazvidzi Road.
    The juvenile's affair with Matimba was later discovered this year in June after he sent the complainant airtime on her mobile phone.
    The complainant was doing form one at a boarding school in Gutu and has since stopped going to school.
    Prince Shonhiwa (24) who resides at Chivhu location was also arrested for allegedly raping the same juvenile.
    However, there are allegations that Shoniwa was just a decoy to cover-up for Matimba's alleged crime.local news
