A barber from Ascot in Gweru who has appeared at Gweru Magistrates Court on three cases of rape of minors has been convicted on one of the cases.

Goodluck Mbewe (56) of number 428 Sixpence Road, Ascot, Gweru is also accused of molesting minors. He was sentenced 20 years for raping his Grade 7 client at his shop when he appeared before Regional Magistrate Phathekile Msipa on Monday.

It is the State case that on March 16, 2018 the complainant was called by Mbewe when she was passing through his barbershop and he dragged her into his barber shop and raped her once without protection.

The court heard that the complainant reported the matter to her mother two weeks later and that led to Mbewe’s arrest.

Mbewe was brought to court and he pleaded not guilty of the charge but was convicted after a full trial by Msipa.

He will serve an effective 15 years in prison after five years were suspended on condition of good behaviour.

Talent Tadenyika prosecuted.
