ZRP RoundUp
Police in Ruwa arrested a man (25) for raping a juvenile (15) on 9/02/21 at about 1700 hrs. The suspect invited the victim for private lessons and raped her. Meanwhile, The ZRP is warning parents against trusting strangers in executing private lessons with children.
Members of the public are warned against boarding private transport or Mushikashika vehicles. The warning follows a case of rape which occurred in Chitungwiza in December 2020, where a juvenile (14) was offered by a lift by a man who later raped her.
The victim did not divulge the offence to anyone until February 2021 after discovering that she was pregnant. #notorape
