A HARARE woman from Borrowdale landed in the dock after she hired men to r_ape her 15 year old house maid.
Mildred Mutasa, a hairdresser, was arraigned before magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa on Wednesday answering to procuring and r_ape charges.
She was not asked to plead and was remanded to January 31 on $100 bail.
Court heard the teenager suffered in silence for the whole of last year and only managed to expose the abuse when she went to her rural home in Checheche, Chipinge, for last year’s Christmas holidays.
It is alleged that between May and December last year, Mutasa arranged and facilitated for two men only identified as Ticha and Denzel to r_ape her maid without using protection.
Court heard she would silence the victim each time she declined the men’s advances.
Mutasa would order her maid to comply while she got r_aped and threatened her with unspecified action if she declined. Linda Gadzikwa appeared for the state.
