A man has been arrested and charged to court in Zimbabwe for allegedly raping his biological mother.
The man who lives at the Cowdray Park suburb, was arraigned before Magistrate Abednico Ndebele, and according to the prosecutor, Mufaro Mageza, had gone to his 53-year-old mother's house on January 18, broke into the house and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.
In her statement before the court, the victim said her son who is a mechanic, burst into her house in the evening of that day and raped her when she was sleeping.
“He came into my room at around 7pm and shouted at me when I asked how had entered. He then jumped into my blankets and slept on top of me. He had sexual intercourse with me without using protection. I did not refuse or scream because I feared for my life as he has assaulted me before,” the mother narrated.
But the suspect denied raping his mother, saying she was only framing him up.
“I didn’t do it your worship. I don’t know why she is saying I raped her. When she is fighting with my father, she gets me involved in their issues for no reason at all.”
But Abednico Ndebele did not take his plea and ordered that he be remanded in prison custody till February 10 when judgement would be given in the case.
