A man has been arrested and arraigned before a Harare magistrate in Zimbabwe for repeatedly raping an 84-year-old woman.
The 25-year-old suspect identified as Erifi Loki of Lumanda Farm is accused of taking advantage of the woman’s age and staying alone at home to perpetuate the sad act.
The court heard that from 2019 to the 6 of December 2020, Loki would regularly force his way into the octogenarian’s bedroom where he repeatedly raped her. He was however nabbed on 6 December by his victim’s son, while leaving her bedroom.
It was further learned that when the complainant’s son asked her why she allowed Loki to violate her, she said she thought her deceased husband had been visiting her from the grave and had been making love to her since 2019.
Loki is set to appear in court again on 21 December.
