22-Year-Old Man Rapes 9-Year-Old Niece In Baboon Sex Lesson

A 22-year-old man from Gokwe has been slapped with a 14-year jail sentence after he was found guilty of raping his nine-year-old niece in the guise of demonstrating how baboons indulge in sex.

Manasa Makura of Makore village under Chief Chireya in Gokwe North had pleaded not guilty to the charge of rape when he appeared before Gokwe-Kwekwe regional magistrate, Mr Amos Mbobo. Makura was however, convicted after a contested trial and was on Wednesday sentenced to 14 years in prison of which four were suspended on condition of good behaviour.

The State's case as presented by Robert Ndlala was that on 12 September this year, Ndlala met the complainant who was coming from school. Ndlala said Makura invited the young girl to his bedroom hut where he told the complainant that he wanted to demonstrate to her how baboons indulge in sex.

The unsuspecting juvenile complied and followed Makura to his bedroom where upon arrival Makura tripped her and raped her once before threatening her with death if she reported the matter to anyone. However, the brave little girl went and reported the matter to her parents right away who then made a report to the police leading to the 'baboon sex' lecturer's arrest.
