A Harare man appeared in court yesterday on allegations of raping his employee.
Tinashe Mashayamombe,36, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Victoria Mashamba charged with rape.
He was remanded out of custody on $500 bail.
Allegations are that sometime in May this year, Mashayamombe and the complainant were at work at round 5pm when Mashayamombe locked the office door and started romancing the complainant.
The court heard that Mashayamombe started touching the complainant’s breasts and she started to scream for help but nobody rescued her until she kept quiet.
The State alleged that Mashayamombe then put the complainant on the table and removed her pants and raped her once.
Meanwhile, an Epworth man appeared in court facing the same charge.
He was remanded in custody to November 27 with instruction to apply for bail at the High Court.
Allegations are that sometime in August this year the accused person Patrick Masoka informed the complainant that he wanted to visit her.
During the same month Masoka visited the complainant at around 7pm.
The court heard that the complainant lit the candle and Masoka sat on the bed and Masoka suddenly put off the candle, forcibly kissed the complainant and he grabbed her hands and pushed her to the bed.
It is the State case that Masoka pulled the complainant and pushed her panties aside and had unprotected sexual intercourse with her without her consent.
