A 19-year-old has been arrested for allegedly raping his 36-year-old neighbour while she was on her way from church.

Thomas Moyo from Esigodini was not asked to plead when he appeared before Gwanda magistrate, Ms Lerato Nyathi facing a rape charge. He was remanded in custody to December 4.

Prosecuting, Miss Ethel Mahachi said Moyo allegedly raped the woman on September 5 at around 3PM while she was on her way from church.

“On 5 September at around 3PM the complainant was on her way home from church alone when she met the accused person.

Moyo proposed love to the complainant who turned him down and went on to rebuke him for being disrespectful.

“The complainant proceeded her way leaving Moyo behind. Moyo then followed the complainant and upon reaching a bushy area he grabbed her from behind and pushed her to the ground. The complainant tried to scream for help but Moyo placed his t-shirt in her mouth to stop her from making noise,” she said.

Ms Mahachi said Moyo then raped the complainant and threatened to kill her if she reported the matter and he left her in the bush.

She said the complainant proceeded to a nearby homestead where she sought assistance and narrated what the accused person had done to her.-Chronicle
