Terrifying Rise in Rape Crimes Traced Back to Guchu & Libido Boosters, Police Uncover Alarming Findings

According to Detective Assistant Inspector Rachel Muteweri, men who use gushu and libido boosters are the main perpetrators of sexual abuse, murder, and domestic violence. She made the comments at a training conference for female police officers hosted by the Southern Africa Regional Police Chiefs Corporation Organization (SARPCCO).

Power During Sexual Intercourse

Det Asst Insp Muteweri said some men take sex-enhancing drugs in the hope of gaining power during sexual intercourse and end up raping their relatives, minor children, or those close to them. She said,

“Mhosva dzemakunakuna dzawanda zvichikonzerwa nevarume varikutora zvinodhaka pamwe nemapiritsi epabonde.”

Placards Denouncing Violence

Female police officers from the region marched in the Harare central business district (CBD) with placards denouncing violence against women and children, child marriageshuman trafficking, and drug abuse. Some of the placards were inscribed “Speak out against sexual and gender violence“, “No to child marriages”, and “Together we can stop drug and substance abuse.”

Official Opening

H-Metro reported that, officially opening the conference, Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Deputy Minister, Ruth Mavhunga Maboi, said that the training workshop would leave all participants better positioned to combat the ever-evolving criminal sophistry and serve society effectively. She added, “It’s through training conferences of this nature that law enforcement agencies can build the much-needed technical capacity to combat these emerging crimes.”

Quoting Detective Assistant Inspector Rachel Muteweri

Detective Assistant Inspector Rachel Muteweri shed light on the issue of drug-fueled sexual violence, saying, “We have some men who take sex-enhancing tablets expecting to gain power during sexual intercourse and they end up raping their relatives, minor children, and anyone close to them.”

Ending Sexual Violence

The rise of drug-fueled sexual violence highlights the need for increased awareness and education around the dangers of sex-enhancing drugs and the importance of consent in sexual intercourse. It’s crucial to provide support and counseling services to victims of sexual abuse and work towards creating a safe environment for all.
