CHIEF Chikwaka Wednesday testified in court that rape-accused Tapiwa Freddy enjoyed oral se_x with the ZBC presenter Rutendo Makuti.
The cleric also enjoyed se_x when the DJ was having her periods.
This emerged as the rap_e trial of T Freddy continued before Harare Magistrate Gloria Takundwa where Chief Chikwaka, an uncle of the complainant, testified against the cleric.
The traditional leader said T Freddy once forced himself on the complainant without her consent. He said the accused molested Makuti first before forcefully having se_xual intercourse with her.
“She said Freddy had accompanied her to her rural home in Chiendambuya. When they came back, the accused said he was tired and wanted to rest after arriving at Rutendo’s residence. He was then given a place to rest,’’ Chief Chikwaka told the court.
“Rutendo told me when she went to the kitchen and came back to where the accused was, that was when Freddy touched her, but she rejected his advances. However, she was overpowered until they had se_xual intercourse without her consent.
“She also said the accused enjoyed having oral se_x and also liked intercourse with her whenever she was on her men_strual periods.’’
Chikwaka said he made a follow-up and asked his niece if she had reported T Freddy to the police, but to his surprise, she did not as the accused had propositioned her.
“I then followed up and asked her after a long time if she had reported and said ‘No’. I asked why she had not reported and she said the accused was spreading stories which indicated he was proposing to her and she would accept him.”
Chief Chikwaka told the court T Freddy had also threatened the complainant telling her if she said anything she would disappear or be fired from work.
“Freddy was allegedly threatening Rutendo that she would disappear or be fired from work, but when he met me, he denied these allegations.”
