A woman from Insuza was nearly raped in a scotch cart before pulling the would-be rapist's anaconda until she collapsed.
This was heard by Bulawayo regional magistrate Mark Dzira yesterday when the complainant narrated her ordeal to the court at the trial of Smart Ndlovu (39) who is facing attempted rape charges.
The woman said on the fateful day, some time in 2012, she was looking for transport at around 6pmto take her home when she came across the accused.
"It was then that I saw the accused, who was at the bus stop with his scotch cart. I asked for a lift and he said I could not be transported for free and that I had to pay him. I agreed with him on paying for the journey. He charged me $20, but I contested the fare and he later agreed that $20 was too much, but did not go on to tell me how much I was supposed to pay," she said.
The woman said Smart vowed to rape her when she was about to get home.
"He loaded my goods and two other men boarded the scotch cart. We went towards the village and the two men disembarked at different locations leaving me and the accused in the cart. When we were getting close to our village, he said to me ‘I want to rape you today’. He grabbed me and I pushed him away and he fell on the donkeys. I jumped off the cart and started running away," she said.
She added that the 'self confessed rapist' had already withdrawn his seemingly lengthy anaconda out of the panties but she grabbed and pulled it until he fainted.
"I elbowed him with one hand and grabbed and pulled his manhood which he had exposed, and he fainted then I ran away," she said.
She fled into the bush and phoned her mother to meet her on the way as she was in trouble. The married woman also told her husband how she was nearly raped in a scotch cart and the couple reported the matter to the police, leading to Smart's arrest.
However, through his lawyer, Smart denied the allegations and said he was madly in love with the married woman until he discovered that she was married. he claimed that the attempted rape allegations were merely framed against him by the complainant whom he was once in love with.
