    Zvishavane prophet shaves client’s pubic hair before raping her


    - A self-styled Mberengwa prophet who wanted to exorcise a 17-year-old girl of witchcraft spirits is alleged to have shaved the later's pubic hair first before raping her.
    It is the State case that female members of the girl's family have tattoos on their genitals and these are said to be linked to witchcraft. Silence Matena (48) of Chief Mataruse in Mberengwa had been working with all the family members to remove these and exorcise the bad spirits.
    It is not yet clear if Matema shaved the private parts of all the women that he cleansed in the family.
    However on this day the family wanted their daughter to be cleansed.
    It is the State case that on June 7, 2016, Matena went to remove tattoos from the 17-year-old. The court heard that before he could do anything Matena started shaving the minor's pubic hair so that he could easily remove the tattoos.
    The victim alleges that Matena saw that her pubic hair was infested with lice and shaving was meant to remove them so that he could rape her without collecting the same parasites on himself.
    After shaving the hair Matena is said to have asked the girl to lie on her back after which he allegedly raped her.
    The complainant later on disclosed the matter to a relative who advised her to report the mater to Police leading to the arrest of Matena on June 11, 2016.
    Matena was brought to court facing a rape charge and was remanded in custody to July 20, 2016.
