female rapists.jpgThree females and a 24-year old man have appeared before a Harare Magistrate, Mr Kudakwashe Jarabini facing 17 counts of aggravated indecent assault.

The four, Rosemary Chakwizira and two sisters Sophie and Netsai Nhokwara together with their male accomplice Thulani Ngwenya were arrested in Gweru last week when their vehicle which was loaded with 31 used condoms was involved in an accident.
Pandemonium broke-out at the Rotten Raw Magistrates Court in Harare on Friday, when court officials and the public jostled to catch a glimpse of the suspects commonly referred to as, female rapists.

The three women together with their male accomplice Thulani Ngwenya have been remanded in custody to the 28th of this month after the state represented by Mr Michael Reza indicated that the four are facing a 3rd schedule offence, hence bail can only be entertained at the High Court. 

The four suspects were transferred from Gweru police to Harare where more complainants are alleged to have positively identified the three female suspects.

According to state papers, the three women went on a rampage and lured males to get into their vehicles before raping them.

It is further alleged that the suspects sprayed substances and forcibly gave them concoction to drug their prey before getting intimate with them.

If convicted the suspects are likely to get sentences similar to those of convicted rapists.
