A 39-year-old Waterfalls man has appeared before the courts facing three counts of rape after he had unconsented sexual intercourse with his niece.

It is the state’s case that Michael Kadzima, allegedly had unlawful sexual intercourse with his 17-year-old niece.

The court heard that on the 6th, 7th, and 10th of December 2021 at around 0700hrs, the complainant was at home together with Kadzima, who is her father’s older brother whilst ironing his clothes.

She then went to his bedroom intending to give him his clothes. Kadzima, who was naked, reportedly pulled the complainant inside his room.

He told the complainant that he wanted to see if she was still a virgin and carried her and placed her
on the bed. He later removed her underwear whilst pulling down her skirt.

She tried to scream for help but was overpowered by Kadzima. Kadzima then went on to have sexual intercourse with the complainant without her consent.

The matter came to light when Kadzima texted the complainant on her phone and his wife saw the
messages.

Harare Magistrate Yeukai Dzuda remanded Kadzima in custody to the 10th of February and advised
him to approach the High Court for bail.
