A WAR VETERAN from Mzilikazi in Bulawayo allegedly forced a young girl to suck his manhood before fondling her private parts.
He went on to allegedly rape another girl. This was heard in the Bulawayo Regional Court when Ndola Gwebu (57) appeared before magistrate Collet Ncube facing two counts of aggravated indecent assault and one count of rape.
Gwebu was not asked to plead to the charges and is set to again appear in court today. Ncube advised the State to ensure the case papers were retyped to indicate the ages of the children before the trial can continue.
The State alleged that Gwebu is a neighbour to the two minors and that between November 2013 and January this year, he called one of the girls to his house and allegedly stripped before asking her to suck his manhood.
It was alleged that Gwebu gave the girl R2 and ordered her to leave.
Gwebu allegedly called the same girl to his house during the same period and told her he wanted to have sex with her so that he could give her some money, but she refused to remove her clothes.
Gwebu allegedly threatened to call her aunt. He allegedly inserted his finger into the girl’s private parts before giving her $1 and the girl went away.
In the third count, Gwebu was said to have called another girl from the neighbourhood while she was playing with her friends and took her to his room where he allegedly raped her once.
