HIV positive man arrested for raping three women in Zimbabwe

A man who is living with the HIV virus has been arraigned in court for raping three women.

A Zimbabwe Court of justice

ZimEye reports that Nhanga was arraigned before Magistrate Story Rushambwa on a three-count charge of rape.

According to the prosecutor, sometime in February this year, Nhanga broke into a house in the Makwasha area of Zvishavane and grabbed the first victim by the neck, undressed and threatened to kill her if she refused to cooperate. He then raped her once before escaping.

On the same night, Nhanga proceeded to a nearby house where he raped a 24-year-old woman. He allegedly switched off the electricity at the house, sneaked into the house and  ordered the woman to undress but she refused.

Nhanga then forcibly removed the woman’s clothes and raped her once and ordered her to take a bath while he watched.

The woman managed to see Nhanga's face through the dim light provided by the tower light. She pushed him down overpowering him in the way and ran to the police station where she reported the matter.

On March 26, Nhanga broke into another house where he stole two Nokia cellphones before raping the 17-year-old girl who was sleeping. He threatened to kill the teen after raping her.

Upon hearing some noise, a neighbour woke up to investigate and hit a fleeing Nhanga who forgot his red jacket.

Nhanga was later arrested after the police tracked him using his jacket and has been remanded after the initial court hearing.
