A Zvishavane man has appeared before the magistrate’s court facing charges of rape.
It is the state’s case that the accused 52 -year-old Arnold Makonye of Plot 5 Woodlands raped his daughter-in-law Grace Jinya (27)on the 3rd of September at his place of residence.
The court heard how the accused forcibly opened a closed-door to gain entry and while inside the room, he grabbed the complainant from behind then pushed her to bed, and had sexual intercourse with her once without the complainant’s consent.
Zvishavane Magistrate Archie Wochiunga remanded Makonye in custody to 24th September 2021 and was advised to apply for bail at the high court.
