Magistrate Memory Chigwaza, however, suspended 5 years on condition that Dinara will not commit a similar offence in the next 5 years.

It is the State case that the 15 year old complainant was having prayers at Domboramwari together with her young sister when Dinara approached them.

Dinara misrepresented that he was a police officer and wanted to arrest them for loitering.

It has been established that Dinara took the complainant to a bush area and raped her.
