A burst cond0m during se_x with a pr0stitute has landed a Harare man in court, charged with rap_e.
Godfrey Muteswa, 34, deliberately tore the cond0m and proceeded to have se_x with his accuser despite her insistence on the use of protection, the Harare Magistrates Court heard on Wednesday.
Muteswa, according to prosecutor Sebastian Mutizirwa, picked up the hooker from Joy Centre Night Club in Machipisa, Highfield, on July 30 this year. A fee of $10 was agreed for se_x.
They proceeded to the woman’s residence in the same neighbourhood, magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa heard.
The woman, 28, gave Muteswa a cond0m to put on, but it is alleged he went on to deliberately tear it just before the interc0urse was to begin.
“The complainant realised that Muteswa had torn the cond0m and ordered him to stop but he resisted and went on to sleep with her without protection,” Mutizirwa said.
The state further alleges that Muteswa paid $8 instead of the agreed $10 after ra_ping the victim.
Following the alleged se_x attack, the victim called a taxi and went to a police station where she filed a case of rap_e.
Muteswa denies rap_e, insisting that the cond0m burst during se_x. He told the magistrate he was the one more concerned about possible exposure to se_xually transmitted diseases given the alleged victim’s risky se_xual behaviour.
He also told the magistrate he successfully negotiated for $8 although the woman had initially charged him $10.
The case was postponed to a later date for trial.
