A 32-year-old Gweru man is up for rape which he committed after he allegedly first spiked his girlfriend’s drink with an unknown substance.

The suspect gave his 16-year-old girlfriend a Cascade drink which had some drug in it. When the teen passed out, he pounced on her and raped her.

The victim reported the matter to police.

“The ZRP is investigating a case of rape where a suspect (32) gave his girlfriend (16) a Cascade drink laced with unknown substance in Gweru and raped her,” police spokesperson Paul Nyathi said.

Nyathi did not give the date, but confirmed the incident and said investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, police in Bulawayo are investigating a case in which an 18-year-old woman gave birth to a still born baby and disposed the body in a sewage stream.

The incident took place near Manemo shopping centre in Nkulumane suburb on Thursday. □
