A heartless Mutare employer allegedly assisted her male friend to rape her maid last week. The acting Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Sergeant Muzondiwa Clean, confirmed the incident that happened last Friday at around 3am in Dangamvura high density suburb of Mutare.
"The accused who was only identified as Roy visited the complainant's employer at her homestead and went on to spend the whole day drinking beer at a local drinking hole. After drinking beer, the two later returned home where the complainant's employer accompanied Roy to the bedroom where the maid was sleeping. She ordered the two to share the same bedroom for the night. The complainant's employer locked the two inside the room," Sgt Muzondiwa said.
"At around 3am, Roy allegedly requested for some condoms from the complainant's employer and was given. Roy raped the complainant once using a condom. The complainant called for help, but her employer ignored her. The complainant made a report to the police the following morning," Sgt Muzondiwa added.
However, Roy is still at large. Sgt Clean urged employers to respect their employees.
