Three Bulawayo women have appeared in court facing rape charges on a 23-year-old man from Cowdray Park.

Sandra Ncube (21), Riamuhetsi Mlauzi (23) and Mongiwe Mpofu (25) appeared before regional magistrate Joseph Mabeza for allegedly having sexual intercourse with Kudakwashe Munhenga without his consent.

According to the state prosecutor, Tinashe Dzipe, Munhenga visited the girls’ residence to request the money that one of them owed him.

Upon arrival, it is alleged, one of the accused grabbed the complainant by his waist and dragged him into their room.

The accused allegedly held Munhenga against the bed whilst the other accused was having intercourse with the victim.

The three women being represented by Abednico Ndebele from Mathonsi Law Chambers said the complainant had intercourse with the accused willingly since he found the women naked.

Ndebele said the women only tickled the victim who ended up agreeing to have intercourse.

The accused denied the allegations and the case has been remanded to the 20th of November.
