A SEX-starved Masvingo man allegedly grabbed his unsuspecting 63-year-old mother and attempted to rape her. The mother had to scream for help forcing the son-turned rapist to flea. The shameful suspect, 44 reportedly sneaked into a kitchen where his mother was, pretending he wanted to light a cigarette.

Yesterday the accused appeared before Masvingo regional magistrate Langton Ndokera facing charges of attempted rape. He pleaded not guilty and was remanded in custody to Friday.

Prosecuting, Fidelicy Nyamunkondiwa said on February, 3, 2014 at around 3PM the man, who has two previous convictions involving theft and indecent assault, entered the kitchen hut at his brother’s homestead and found his mother inside.

He allegedly pretended he wanted to light a cigarette before tripping the mother to the ground and then sat on her. He thereafter allegedly unzipped his pair of trousers and attempted to rape the old woman. The woman screamed for help forcing him to storm out of the hut and flea. The woman then went to a nearby homestead where she narrated her ordeal while waiting for her elder son’s return from work.

When the elder son arrived, the mother reported the attempted rape after which he phoned his brother in Guruve, Mashonaland Central province. The son in Guruve suggested that the matter be solved at family level and the mother agreed.

However, on February, 7, 2014 the woman decided to report the matter to Mashenjere Police Base leading to the man’s arrest.
