    Shurugwi man (54) rapes, breaks teen’s virginity


    SHURUGWI - A 54 year-old Shurugwi man who raped a 13-year-old and broke the girl's virginity has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.
    Medicine Sibanda residing in Makusha Shurugwi appeared before Gweru Regional magistrate Morgan Nemadire facing rape charges last Wednesday.
    Sibanda was slapped with 12 years and three years were suspended on condition that he did not commit the same crime within a period of five years leaving him with nine effective years.
    The court heard that on October 31, 2015 at about 430pm the accused arrived at the complainant's home and found the complainant alone.

    After raping the complainant, the accused vanished into a nearby bush.
    The mother later examined her daughter and found bruises on her private parts and reported the matter to Shurugwi Police station and a medical report was produced as exhibit in court.
