- Charles Mutema (20) of Dzingai village under Chief Chiwara this week appeared in the Gutu Magistrates' Court facing charges of attempting to rape a four-year-old girl who is said to be his niece.
He was charged for contravening with Section 189 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 09:23, 'attempted Rape'.
Mutema was remanded in custody to September 04 and was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
State facts as presented by Millicent Azangwe are that on July 28 this year around 10:00hrs, the child was at home when Mutema called her into his room promising to give her bread.
When the child got into the room, Mutema lifted her, laid her on the bed facing upwards, lifted her skirt, removed her pant completely and caressed her intending to have sexual intercourse with her.
Mutema then suddenly ordered the child to dress up and get out of the room after hearing some footsteps outside.
The matter came to light when the child reported what had happened to her mother when she came back home. A report was then made to the police leading to Mutema's arrest.court
