A 42-year-old man from Harare has appeared in court for allegedly rɑp!ng a minor.
Moses Ngwena appeared before Harare Regional Magistrate Mr Stanford Mambanje charged with two counts of rɑpǝ.
He pleaded not guilty and was remanded in custody to April 5.
The State alleged that sometime last year in August, Ngwena and the complainant were residing close to each other.
The complainant’s mother went to her workplace leaving the minor at home alone.
Ngwena then invited the complainant into his house and he proposed l0ve to her and she rejected his pr0p0sal.
On another day, Ngwena invited the minor to his room f0ndled her brǝɑƨts asking if she had made up her mind to his pr0p0sal and she turned down the pr0p0sal again.
In that same month, Ngwena asked her to come to his room and that is when he rɑpǝd her once without pr0tection.
After the act, Ngwena threatened to harm the complainant if she disclosed the matter to anyone and she complied.
On another separate day, Ngwena rɑpǝd her again.
