Mhiripiri Bus Company owner Mathius Mhiripiri, 60, was arraigned before the courts yesterday charged with raping his 17-year-old niece at gun point. He appeared before Harare magistrate Tilda Mazhande and was released on $200 bail and will be back in court on March 23 pending finalisation of investigations. The court heard that the victim went to the accused’s house at the behest of her aunt and was told she could not go back since it was late. The accused then asked her to share the same bedroom with him where he allegedly pointed a gun at the minor before raping her. She reported the matter to the police and was sent MSF Clinic for medical examinations.
