In apparently the rarest of rare cases, a 31-year-old man from Esigodini in Umzingwane District, Matabeleland South province left the entire area reeling in shock after he allegedly rap€d his 64-year-old mother.
Yes, you read that right, the man whose identity has been withheld to protect the victim allegedly pounced on his biological mother as she was sleeping and was also suspected visibly drunk.
Circumstances to the shocking incident are that on 15 July during the night, the man went to his mother’s bedroom and found the door unlocked.
He then pushed the door open and got inside.
While inside the bedroom, the seemingly s€xually frustrated man found his mother who was visibly drunk fast asleep and alone on the bed.
It is alleged that he then got on top of the bed where he allegedly started caressing her before he went on to undress her and allegedly had s€xual intercourse with her while she slept.
After having s€x with his mother and apparently in a swank of shame the man quickly bolted out of the house to an unknown destination.
When the woman woke up she was horrified to find that she was no longer wearing her clothes and had semen on her body.
Suspecting that it was her son who had s€xually attacked her she went to a member of the Neighbourhood Watch Committee and narrated her ordeal to her.
The matter was reported to the police and investigations led to the arrest of her son.
The man has since appeared before Esigodini resident magistrate Jeconia Prince Ncube charged with rap€.
He was not asked to plead and was remanded in custody until 4 August.
