Man (38) ambushes girl (12) at a well, drags her to a banana plantation and rapes her


Horrific rape of young girl lands predator behind bars

Justice was served this week as a 38-year-old man from Gosho village was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the heinous rape of a 12-year-old girl. The disturbing incident occurred last December, shaking the community to its core.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority of Zimbabwe, the predator had repeatedly made unwanted ƨǝxuɑl advances towards the young victim whenever they encountered each other at the local well. However, the brave young girl always resolutely refused his despicable propositions.

Tragically, the man’s persistent depravity culminated in a vicious attack one fateful afternoon. Spotting the child at the well, he seized her, gagged her with a cloth, and then dragged the terrified girl to a nearby banana plantation. There, he callously overpowered and brutally raped the innocent victim.

It was only two days later that the traumatized child confided in a friend, setting in motion the wheels of justice. The Chegutu Magistrates’ Court swiftly heard the case and delivered a stern sentence, sending a clear message that such heinous crimes against the vulnerable will not be tolerated.

While no punishment can undo the damage done, residents hope this conviction will serve as a deterrent, protecting other children from falling prey to such predatory monsters. The fight to keep Zimbabwe’s streets safe for all continues.
