Zimbabwe: 27yo deaf pedophile in court, accused of 12 counts of rape

The charges of 12 cases of child molestation were brought against a 27-year-old deaf and dumb man from Penhalonga, the Manicaland province, Zimbabwe, on Monday.

The accused denied the charges of 12 counts of rape and aggravated indecent assault against minors. Magistrate Notebulgah Muchineripi had postponed the trial until December 4 and remanded the man in custody.

The Court heard that the suspected rapist had been committing the offences molesting children in a period of eleven months from January till November this year. In two cases, he is suspected of having sodomised two minors, aged nine and seven. The other two victims were six and seven years old.

The man was arrested after one of his victims had complained to the parents about the ordeals.
