Three Zimbabwe women in court for sex attacks on men


Three Zimbabwean women have appeared in court charged with indecent assault for a spree of sex attacks on male hitchhikers and using their victims’ semen for undisclosed rituals, police said Saturday.
“We can confirm that three female and one male suspect were arrested,” national police spokesman Oliver Mandipaka told AFP. “But we cannot speculate or comment further as the case is now before the courts.”
Sisters Sophie, 26, and Netsai Nhokwara, 24, and Rosemary Chakwizira, 28, were the first suspects to be charged in connection with a string of sex attacks on men first reported two years ago. They were arrested together with a man who said he was boyfriend to one of the women, according to the state-owned Herald newspaper. In March this year the women sprayed an anaesthetic substance on a 19-year-old after giving him a lift, according to prosecutor Michael Reza.
“They then allegedly forced the teenager to be intimate with the three of them using condoms,” The Herald quoted Reza as saying.
“After this, they secured the used condoms containing semen before leaving him unconscious after spraying the unknown substance at him.”
