A sex-starved married woman from Bulawayo's Makokoba suburb who allegedly could not afford living without 'sampling' her neighbour's 12 year-old son's anaconda reportedly invited him to her bedroom and raped him.
The woman whose name is withheld to protect the boy's identity, would reportedly watch the Grade 6 boy playing with friends through the window. She finally called him into her house and told him she wanted the two of them to play a game.
Neighbours told Bulawayo24 News that the boy's friends followed and saw the woman molesting the boy through a window.
"The children told us the woman was naked and she touched the boy who was also naked all over the body. She then put the boy on top of her and forced him to have sex with her. We told the boy's mother and she reported the matter to the police," said a neighbour.
Police arrested the woman on Saturday and she will appear in court soon.
The neighbours said what the woman did was disgusting and highly unethical.
"It is not as if she is not married, she is just being selfish. She might have destroyed the child emotionally by exposing him to the adult game. In these days of diseases, we can only hope he did not catch something from her," said another neighbour.
Acting police spokesperson for Bulawayo province inspector Mandlenkosi Moyo could not be reached for comment.
