Arrests in female rapists probe

THE notorious female rapists who have been terrorising men and eluding police arrest have resurfaced in Gweru where they staged a daring abduction of a uniformed soldier on Sunday and took turns to rape him in broad daylight.

Midlands Police spokesman Leonard Chabata says the unnamed military man, 32, hitch-hiked a BMW in downtown Gweru Sunday morning intending to travel to Harare where he is employed.

The car had three female passengers and a male driver, who instead of hitting the road to the capital, detoured into the bushes where the females allegedly gang-raped the complainant.

Chabata says on arrival at the Ridgemont turn-off, one of the females, stout and light in complexion, retrieved a container from her handbag and sprayed the soldier with an unknown substance which weakened him.

The suspects then forced him to drink yet another unknown liquid, presumably to crank up his erection. Police say the man passed out after ingesting the substance.

“At around 11:30AM, the complainant gained consciousness and discovered that he had been dumped in a bushy area about 100m away from the highway,” Chabata said.

“He also discovered that his trousers and undergarments had been removed. All his belongings were at the scene where he was dumped.”

Sensing that he had been violated, the man picked himself up and went to the Gweru Central Police Station where he filed a report.

Chabata urged members of the public to cooperate with police in the search for the suspects.

He also counseled: “We are also appealing to members of the public to always use public transport when travelling.”

The incident matches several other alleged abductions and subsequent rapes of men by females, that have been reported especially in Gweru and Harare in the past two years.

Last year three Gweru women, Rosemary Chakwizira and sisters Sophie and Netsai Nhokwara were arrested at a road block after police discovered used condoms with semen in the boot of their vehicle.

The three were suspected of being part of a female gang targeting men to collect their semen for alleged ritual purposes, but they were acquitted due to lack of evidence.

And in October this year, a Harare man was allegedly kidnapped and raped by a four-member gang that had offered him a lift from the city centre.
