Armed robber facing 6 rape counts




Armed robber facing 6 r@pe counts. Bessam Mahosi alias Kudzanai Gwaze Ambewe, 37, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi.

A suspected armed robber who is currently in remand prison was yesterday dragged to court to answer to six counts of r@pe which he reportedly committed as he was on a robbing spree in Kuwadzana, Norton and surrounding areas.

The court heard that in counts 1 and 2, on April 20, at around 3pm, and along a foot path that links Kuwadzana 4 and Crowborough Phase 2, Mahosi using violence attacked the complainant and threatened to stab her using a knife.

It is alleged that he strangled her whilst pulling braids before he took her money and cellphone that were in her handbag and after robbing her of her possessions, he raped her.

The court heard that Mahosi dropped from his pockets an NMB card, Zupco tapcard and a national identity card belonging to Prosper Qokana which the complainant picked and surrendered to the police and it was established that it belonged to one of his victims whom had been robbed in Norton.

The court heard that in counts 2 and 3, Mahosi attacked the second complainant at the same bridge and threatened to stab her before robbing her of her belongings before stealing her tap card and cellphone.

When he took her cellphone, he demanded her Ecocash pin code which she gave him and after robbing her, he raped her and fled from the scene.

Mahosi was linked to the offence when he dropped the second complainant’s tap card after raping the first complainant and he also made an Ecocash transaction using her phone to pay a sex worker in Norton who implicate him to the police.

In count five, it is reported that Mahosi r@ped a 12-year-old girl who was using the same path in the Kuwadzana council paddock.

In count six, the court heard that Mahosi approached a 14-year-old complainant who was with her twin sister and asked them to assist him to carry his crates of eggs and they followed him to a supermarket close to the Kuwadzana paddocks where he left the complainant waiting outside and ordered the other twin to go to White road to meet unnamed people who were bringing other items to the shop.

Mahosi reportedly then came out of the stop and asked the complainant to follow him and when she noticed that she was getting to a bushy area she attempted to turn back and he took out a knife and threatened to stab her before r@ping her.

Mahosi ordered the juvenile to leave the scene without turning back and when she got home she told her grandmother what had transpired and she made a police report. Mahosi was positively identified by the complainant in camera. Anesu Chirenje appeared for the State.
