In a shocking incident, a shameless and extremely sex-starved Masvingo man (44) has been arrested for trying to rape his biological mother (63).
It is reported that the man found his elderly mother standing in the kitchen hut at his brother’s homestead and got in after giving her an impression that he wanted to light his cigarette.
Upon getting inside, the 44-year-old man then approached his mum and tripped her to the ground before sitting on her lap. He allegedly withdrew his ‘dangerous anaconda’ and attempted to rape his mother.
The elderly woman, realising that her own son she gave birth to and raised was about to rape her, then screamed for help, and her son stormed out and fled the scene.
State Prosecutor Fidelicy Nyamukondiwa said the incident occurred on 3 February and around 3pm.
“After the incident, the complainant went to a nearby homestead and narrated her ordeal as she was waiting for her elder son to return from work,” the Prosecutor said.
When the elder son returned home, he too could not handle the matter alone, so he decided to phone his other brother who is based in Guruve. The two sons of the woman, who she gave birth to when she was still a teenager, agreed to solve the matter as a family without reporting it to police.
At first the woman seemed to have agreed to this arrangement, but four days later, the 63-year-old woman could still not stomach the fact that her own son had attempted to rape her. She then went to Mashenjere Police Base where she reported the matter leading to her son’s arrest.
He was hauled before Masvingo regional magistrate Langton Ndokera, facing attempted rape charges. The 44-year-old man pleaded not guilty and was remanded in custody to 21 february for trial.
Meanwhile, it has since been established that the man has previously been arrested and convicted for theft charges. He has also previously been convicted on yet another sexual-abuse related case.
