: Here’s the report, from an international news agency:
He now moves around with the aid of crutches… he’s a 48-year-old teacher… He’s a father of four…. It still brings him to tears… He was sexually abused for days by two women…
…My family stays here in Chitungwiza (Zimbabwe, Africa), and I was on my way back to Macheke after a weekend visit when this tragedy happened. I usually prefer to use buses when traveling but as fate would have it, that day I flagged down a private car, a BMW and it stopped. The driver told me that he was going to Mutare via Marondera and that was perfect for me. There were three women already in the car, one sitting on the front passenger seat and the other two on the back seat. I got in and sat with the two women at the back and we took off,” Chivamba said.
He said everyone was very friendly and the driver seemed to be in a love relationship with the woman sitting with him in the front.
“They were all drinking beer which was in a cooler box and when we got to Ziko shopping center they stopped to refill. One of the ladies offered me a beer and I politely turned her down since I was not feeling well. I settled for a cascade which she handed over to me,” he recalled.
Chivamba said as they approached the Dema toll gate the driver took the dust road which many other drivers used to avoid paying toll fees. He said by this time he had finished the drink but was strangely feeling dizzy.
“I thought maybe it was the effects of the tablets that I had taken that day since I was having a running stomach. I fell asleep and the next moment I found myself in a small room with a small bed. I screamed but no one came to my rescue.
“My manhood felt itchy and when I looked down I realized I was bruised. I felt weak and I was confused. Then the two women who I was sharing the back seat of the car entered the room. They appeared to be much younger than the one who was seated at the front. They began removing their clothes and told me that they wanted me to have se_x with them. I refused but one of them who appeared very drunk produced a pistol and told me that she would not hesitate to kill me.
They tied both my hands and began caressing me like what happens in a porn movie. They would take turns to suck my manhood and forcibly having se_x with me. I was made to take another drink and soon after I had an erection. They would not stop raping me despite my pleas for mercy. One of the women used a condom but the other one wanted unprotected se_x,” Chivamba recalled.
The following day the women brought him food but kept him locked up in the small room while masked with a woolen hat. Later in the day they bundled him into their car and they drove for some time before he was dumped along Wedza-Murambinda road.
“That was my first time to be in Wedza. I was assisted by some young men who directed me to Wedza center where I reported the matter to the police. The police then took me to the hospital where I was given treatment for the bruises on my manhood and also medication to prevent infection. I am grateful to the police and the staff at the hospital,” he said.
The medical report seen by this paper says Chivamba sustained injuries on his manhood, suffered chest pains and was put on 30-day medication to prevent him from contracting the HIV virus.
