Drama as woman flees rape scene in petticoat after being molested by ex-husband


The Police in Zimbabwean have taken into custody a 27-year-old man who reportedly raped his ex-wife after luring her with Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) tickets.
The Bulawayo native, who cannot be named to protect the woman, was said to have perpetuated the act last Friday at his home in Mpopoma suburb.
According to the ‘Chronicles’, the woman who managed to escape the venue of the assault wearing a petticoat, lodged a complaint with the police afterwards, who recovered her clothes from the assailant’s resident.
The man was not asked to plead to rape when he appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube on Monday.
He was remanded in custody to May 14 for provision of a trial date.
Mr Ncube advised the man to apply for bail at the High Court.
Prosecuting, Mrs Memory Ndlovu said on Friday, the accused lured his ex-wife to his place of residence saying he had some trade fair tickets that he got from his uncle.
“At the man’s home the accused suddenly pulled the woman’s blouse and dragged her into his bedroom.
“The accused forcibly had unprotected sexual intercourse with the woman. The complainant screamed but no one could hear her as the radio was turned on high volume.”
The court heard that the woman managed to escape and she ran out of the house.
