GWERU -Regional Magistrate Christopher Maturure has sentenced a Zaka man to 17 years in jail for raping a six-year-old girl.

Evans Damba (27) of Veza Village, Chief Nyakunhuwa in Zaka raped the girl (name withheld) while her mother who is a sex worker was bathing. 

Damba had gone to the house to get the sex worker’s services. The incident happened on November 3, 2023, in Gweru around 7 am.

Magistrate Maturure said Damba exposed the girl to Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and left her mentally disturbed. 

A medical report indicated that the girl suffered bruises on her knees and on the anal region with blood stains on her undergarments. 

Circumstances are that Damba arrived at the woman’s house around 7 am to have sexual intercourse and he found her bathing. He failed to control his sexual desire and grabbed the minor that was playing with friends and dragged her to a nearby bush where he raped her. Damba took the minor to the nearest shopping centre where he dumped her and fled away. The mother traced her daughter and found her at the shopping centre. The minor narrated the ordeal to her mother who alerted community members leading to Damba’s apprehension. A Police report was later filed.
