Man In Court For Beating & Molesting Sister With sjambok

A man hailing from Chief Shumba’s jurisdiction in Masvingo found himself in court, accused of domestic violence and indecent assault. Allegedly, he had beaten and molested his sister, accusing her of attracting men without genuine intentions.

Appearing before Masvingo regional magistrate Bishard Chineka, the accused was remanded in custody pending the continuation of the trial scheduled for February 26. While he admitted guilt to the charge of domestic violence, he pleaded not guilty to the charge of indecent assault.

The incident reportedly occurred on February 7, 2024, around 10:30 PM, when the accused and his younger brother visited their sister’s home in the village. Upon finding her with a male companion she referred to as her boyfriend, they inquired about her intentions regarding marriage and starting a family, to which she expressed no such desires.

It’s alleged that the accused then proceeded to physically assault the complainant with a sjambok, prompting her to flee to their aunt’s house, with the brothers in pursuit. Despite seeking refuge behind her aunt, the accused continued the assault. He even forcibly entered the aunt’s room, where he restrained the complainant and demanded she undress, purportedly to assess her attractiveness.

When the complainant refused, the accused tied her hands, forced her to the floor, and proceeded to molest her, despite her pleas for mercy. She eventually managed to escape, seeking refuge at the village head’s residence, only to be pursued and assaulted again by the accused and his brother.

Ultimately, they dragged her back to her own home, leaving her naked until she could wrap herself in a towel. The matter was reported on February 12, leading to the accused’s arrest while the complainant sought medical attention for her injuries. Innocent Mudzingwa served as the prosecutor in the case.
