A gang of female serial rapists has been declared wanted after they abducted two men and repeatedly raped them leading to their being hospitalized.
The Herald reports that the two men were sexually assaulted after they were offered lifts by seven women in two separate incidents in Harare.
The first victim, it was gathered, was held up with a gun, forced into the bush, raped and then drugged while the other was knocked out by a drink and abused while unconscious by the female serial rape gang.
Police say they are now investigating the rape cases and have also urged members of the public to be vigilant when they are picked up by women.
The Harare Chief Superintendent of Police, Paul Nyathi, while confirming the cases, said one of the two recent victims, aged 37, was picked up in Harare on May 27, 2017, by a car containing one man and two women.
A woman who then came aboard at the same time reportedly pointed a pistol at the man after the driver had taken the car on a detour.
Nyathi said the woman force-marched the man into the bush, adding:
"One of the females forced the complainant to have sexual intercourse with her without his consent while another female forced the man to drink an unknown liquid which left him unconscious."
The other victim explained that he also boarded a car in Harare containing five women. One of them allegedly offered him and shortly after drinking, he became unconscious.
Chief Supt. Nyathi said:
"When the man gained consciousness, he discovered that he had been abused."
The police officer noted that last year, the police were on the lookout for four women alleged to have sexually abused a 29-year-old man after offering him a lift in the Zimbabwean capital.
In 2015, another man, also aged 29, was allegedly raped at gunpoint after being given a ride from Magunje Growth Point.
