    Juvenile directed me to rape her – suspect tells court


    CHIVHU -
    A man from Village 10 in Manyoni, Mhondoro-Ngezi who was determined to convince the court that he did not rape a 10-year-old minor but there was consent argued that it was the minor who actually held his manhood and directed it in for sex.
    "It is the girl who actually got hold of my organ and inserted it in," said Braswell Chigwededza in defence.
    Chivhu Regional Magistrate Fadzai Mtombeni however, still convicted Chigwededza and slapped him with eight-year jail sentence.
    The Court heard that the accused followed the complainant into her room where she wanted to collect her clothes for laundry, tripped her before removing her skirt and pant and had sexual intercourse with her without her consent. The incident happened on September 24, 2016.
    Chigwededza was employed as a domestic worker at the complainant's homestead.
    He then persuaded the complainant not to reveal the matter to anyone and offered a cell phone, money and washing powder.
    The complainant told her uncle and a report was made at Manyoni Police Post in Mhondoro. Chigwededza pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years in jail, two 0f which were suspended on condition of good behaviour.crime news
