Jilted man rapes ex-wife's sister

A MAN from Bulawayo's Entumbane Suburb allegedly raped his ex wife's 15-year-old sister and told her she should become his wife because he had made her pregnant.

Tendai Marecha, 30, called the 15-year-old on her mobile phone and invited her to visit him as he had something to share with her. Yesterday, he appeared before magistrate Sibongile Msipa-Marondedze charged with rape.

He was remanded in custody to today for bail ruling.

Prosecuting, Maria John said sometime in July at around 12 noon, the girl received a phone call from Marecha inviting her to his place of residence in Entumbane.

She said the girl proceeded to the house and found him seated under a mango tree.

The court heard they went into the house and she sat on a bed.

Marecha, the court heard, locked the door. He later turned up the volume on a radio and pushed the girl down forcing her to lie facing upwards.

"He forcibly removed her clothes and raped her once without protection, the girl tried to scream but the volume was too high for anyone to hear her," said the prosecutor.

John said: "After committing the crime Marecha told the girl that she will have to live with him because she was already carrying his baby. The girl dressed up and demanded that Marecha should release her."

The court heard the girl went home and did not reveal the matter to anyone.

A month later, the girl revealed the matter to a police officer who was passing through her neighbourhood who helped her report the matter.
