It is alleged that sometime in October of this year, Ngqatha went to the elderly woman’s homestead during the night. Upon arrival, he broke her bedroom window to gain entry. Once inside, he silently approached the 80-year-old’s bed, groped her breasts and buttocks before molesting her.

Together, the shocked granddaughter and the granny returned to the bedroom, only to discover that Ngqatha had already fled the scene. However, they noticed that he had left behind his knobkerrie, a traditional weapon.

Reporting the Crime and Arrest

Realizing the significance of the evidence, they promptly took the knobkerrie to the local police station, reporting the incident and providing crucial information that led to Ngqatha’s subsequent arrest.

Court Appearance and Remand

Onele Ngqatha stood before Bulawayo regional magistrate Collet Ncube and was remanded in custody until November 8, 2023. He was not asked to enter a plea during the hearing.


As the court case progresses, our primary focus remains on achieving justice for the elderly victim. It is crucial to send a stern warning to potential offenders about the severe consequences of such heinous acts. Unfortunately, instances of rape are increasing, as exemplified by a recent report from H-Metro detailing the shocking rape of two Lord Malvern students by their fellow schoolmates.
