Epworth Man Rapes Wife’s Friend While Seeking Refuge in His House

A woman seeking refuge in Epworth from a domestic dispute was allegedly sexually violated by her friend’s husband. Tendekai Chitambu is accused of raping the woman while his wife was away.

Brutal Assault

The incident occurred on May 18 at around 7pm when Chitambu asked for sex while they were having supper. The woman turned him down, but later that night, Chitambu went to the spare bedroom where the woman was sleeping and demanded to have sexual intercourse with her. He argued that he was providing food and accommodation for her and her son.

When the woman refused and threatened to tell Chitambu’s wife, he hit her on the head several times until she became weak. Chitambu then had unprotected sexual intercourse with the woman once without her consent before leaving for his bedroom.

Shocking Revelation

The woman continued to stay at the house until May 20 when her husband came to take her back home. She then narrated her ordeal to her husband, who promised to solve the matter. The woman was referred to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals for medical examination.

According to H-Metro,  Police are investigating the case, and Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza, stated:

“Police are investigating a case where a woman was raped while seeking refuge in Epworth. The accused is the husband of the complainant’s friend.”

Justice Must Be Served

The incident is a reminder of the dangers women face when seeking refuge from domestic violence. It’s important for perpetrators of such crimes to be held accountable for their actions. The court is committed to delivering justice and ensuring that Chitambu is punished for his alleged crime.
