Court jails uncle, cousin 10 years each for gang-raping teenage maid
Two family members in Zimbabwe have been sentenced to a 10-year prison term each for gang-raping their teenage maid.
According to Zimnews, the rapists, aged 45 and 28, who are uncle and cousin respectively, were sentenced yesterday by a provincial magistrate Pathekile Msipa.
The court heard that the two took turns to rape the 18-year-old maid in August this year after the other family members had travelled out of town.
The complainant later opened up to a neighbour leading to the convicts’ arrest.
The Magistrate initially sentenced the duo to 13 years each but suspended three years on condition of good behaviour.
