Published: 25 July 2015 (930 Views)
A man from the Madlambuzi area in Plumtree who delayed his sentencing in 2014 by claiming that he was insane just after he was convicted of rape will now spend 10 years in jail after a psychiatric examination proved that he was mentally stable. the rapist was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment of which four years are suspended for five years on condition of good behaviour.

Possent Moyo, 35, allegedly raped a five-year-old girl once last year in January and immediately smeared mud on the girl's thighs and bathed her after taking the minor to a pond in a bid to cover up the crime.

Moyo, a father of 11 and husband to two wives, begged regional magistrate Mark Dzira to consider his mental instability last year in September after he was convicted of raping the minor.

The state's case led by Tinashe Dzipe is that on January 29 last year at around 8AM, the girl's mother left her in the custody of two other children aged six and nine as she was going for a school meeting.

Moyo, who resides in the same village in Madlambuzi, visited the children at around 12.30PM and took the two girls to a nearby bushy area. There, Moyo chased away the older girl and had unprotected sex with the four-year-old.

After raping her, he took her to a pond where he bathed her and then took her back home.

When the girl's mother came back the girl informed her of what had transpired."

Moyo was arrested a day after committing the crime.
