    GWERU – An Aiforce Captain at Thornhill in Gweru,  Aron Gwengo (44) has been acquitted for charges of raping his neighbor's six-year-old daughter.
    However, the ruling was not without drama as the minor's grandmother was so furious to the extent of nearly exchanging blows with the accused's  relatives as they came out of the Gweru Magistrates Court.
    Magistrate Morgan Nemadire said in his ruling that the State failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the minor was raped.
    It emerged during the trial that the minor initially accused a relative of rape but changed her statement and accused Gwengo after she was beaten by the grandmother.
