THE 29-YEAR-OLD Mfelandawonye woman Abigail Muzamba, who allegedly demanded sex from her younger brother, had the charge of indecent assault provisionally withdrawn on Tuesday after the magistrate said the court needed to assess her mental status.
When Muzamba appeared before Victoria Falls resident magistrate Sharon Rosemani, she did not respond to any questions posed to her and just kept repeating: “I don’t know anything.”
“Do you know the reason you are here again today?” Rosemani asked.
“I hear you spent the whole night screaming and making noise in cells.
“Do you know the people who were making noise in the cells? We have agreed with the prosecutor to withdraw the charges for further assessment to see whether you are mentally ill or you are faking it,” Rosemani said.
The court heard that on June 10, Muzamba called her 20-year-old younger brother from the rural village saying she had found him a job.
The younger brother arrived at her place on June 13 and later that night she called him to her bedroom where she was laying stark naked.
Muzamba allegedly jumped and grabbed him and demanded that he become intimate with her.
The two fought until the brother escaped to a nearby bush.
He returned and Muzamba approached him still naked and begged him to have sex with her saying this was the only way of cleansing her bad luck.
The brother reported the matter to the police and Muzamba was arrested.
