A Dzivaresekwa man was dragged to court yesterday to answer to rape charges after he reportedly raped his nine-year-old step daughter.
McDonald Nkomo was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Shane Kubonera.

The state represented by Anesu Chirenje alleged that sometime last year and early this year, Nkomo raped his nine-year-old step daughter with whom he was staying on several occasions.

It’s is alleged that sometime, last week, Nkomo attempted to rape his step-daughter again but she managed to escape and sought refuge from their neighbours who took her to the police where she made a police report.

Meanwhile, another Dzivaresekwa man Aaron Dudzai, 38, also appeared in the same court to answer to rape charges.

The court heard that on the first occasion, Dudzai raped the 17 years old complainant whom he resided at the same house with as she was bathing.

It is alleged that on the second count, Dudzai found the complainant cooking and switched off the stove and ordered her to carry his clothes to the bedroom where he raped her and on the other occasion he dragged her to the bedroom and locked the door and raped her again.

He was remanded in custody to September 9 and was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
