Jealous Man R@pes Ex-Girlfriend As Punishment For Moving On & Finding Happiness With New Lover
Love and jealousy can make a deadly cocktail. A 34-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly r@ping his ex-girlfriend in Waterfalls, a suburb in Harare, on Monday.
According to the police, Richard Sauti, a resident of Epworth, had gone to his former girlfriend’s house to discuss their recent break-up. However, things turned ugly when the woman informed him that she had moved on and found a new lover.
The victim, a 23-year-old woman who had moved on from the relationship, welcomed Richard into her house, hoping to have a civil conversation about their future.

However, things took a turn for the worse when Richard learned that his ex-lover had found a new boyfriend. He became irate and demanded that she end the relationship with the new man.
But the victim stood her ground and informed Richard that she had moved on and would not end her new relationship. This response infuriated Richard, and he allegedly locked the door to the house, preventing the woman from leaving. He then proceeded to r@pe her.
Thankfully, the victim confided in her new lover, who accompanied her to the police station to report the crime. The police promptly arrested Richard and charged him with r@pe.
Harare provincial police spokesperson, Inspector Luckmore Chakanza, confirmed the incident and urged victims of domestic violence to seek help and report such crimes to the authorities.
According to H-Metro, Inspector Chakanza said,
“He r@ped her once without protection before fleeing.
“The complainant contacted her new lover who then advised her to lodge a police report.”
This unfortunate incident serves as a reminder of the dangers of unchecked jealousy and the importance of respecting people’s decisions to move on from relationships. No one should have to endure violence and abuse in the name of love, and it’s essential to speak out against such atrocities to protect others from harm.
