GOKWE — In a shocking incident, a Kwekwe woman allegedly stripped a four-year-old and nine-year-old girl naked and invited her three male accomplices to rape them.
This was heard by Gokwe resident magistrate Shepherd Mjanja on Wednesday when Sonie Chada (46), Clever Muchanyu (54), Gabrial Muchanyu (18) and the woman Zodwa Luthili (53) appeared in court facing rape charges.
They were not asked to plead to the charges and were remanded in custody to December 31.
Prosecutor Mandla Ndlovu told the court that the two minors, who are nieces of Chada, met their uncle in the company of Clever.
Chada called the nine-year-old into the house where Gabrial and Luthili were. Luthili grabbed the little girl and stripped her naked before pinning her down on the floor.
Chada and the Muchanyu brothers then took turns to rape the minor.
It is the State’s case that the four-year-old girl said she was going to report to her mother what had transpired and this incensed Luthuli who grabbed and undressed and pinned her down while the three men ravaged her.
After the act the girls told their parents and a report was made to the police, leading to the arrest of the four.
