A NINETEEN-YEAR-OLD Budiriro man was yesterday remanded in custody for rap_ing a minor.
The suspect, David Makaza, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi.
Makaza and the complainant, who is 14-years-old, were in a love relationship.
It is alleged that in March this year, the couple went to a party with two of the complainant’s sisters and while they were there, Makaza started f0ndling the complainant before they later went into his bedroom.
The court heard that while they were in the bedroom, she became weak and does not remember what transpired, but when she woke up she was nak_ed and discovered blood stains on the bed.
She reportedly also felt pain on her lower abdomen and started crying because she knew that Makaza had rap_ed her and told her sisters what had transpired.
Lancelot Mutsokoti appeared for the State.
