MASVINGO –The High Court has acquitted Aubrey Cummings, a Masvingo businessman and renowned golfer of rape charges after staying in jail for three years.
Cummings was acquitted at the High Court in Masvingo on Tuesday after he was incarcerated in 2017 on two counts of raping a minor niece.
He was given the 15-year jail term by then regional Magistrate Dambudzo Malunga at Masvingo Magistrate Courts.
