Women 'using toxic mine waste as sexual stimulant'
Women 'using toxic mine waste as sexual stimulant'

Women living in a small town in north-western Zimbabwe are reportedly at risk of contracting cervix cancer following reports that they were allegedly using toxic acidic mine waste to stimulate their sexual pleasure.

Gweru – Police in Zimbabwe have reportedly arrested a couple for allegedly kidnapping a 14-year-old girl before the woman assisted her husband to rape the minor by holding her hands.

The incident occurred on January 25.

According to the state-owned Chronicle newspaper, Philemon Moyo Tauze, 30, and his wife Netsai Sibanda, 25, appeared before a court in Gweru facing charges of kidnapping and raping a minor.

The two, from Mhike village in Zvishavane, pleaded not guilty and were remanded in custody to February 13.

The court heard that Sibanda approached the girl and asked her if she could accompany her to her homestead where she promised to give her something "that she had kept for her".

The girl agreed, and on arrival Sibanda asked her if she could sleep over for the night, saying her husband would be away. But around 20:00, the husband showed up and the couple asked the girl to sleep with them in the same bedroom hut.

During the night, Tauze started caressing the girl, who resisted, before Sibanda "grabbed and pinned her down". Tauze allegedly went on to rape her. 

This came just a few days after reports said that a 44-year-old Zimbabwean woman was sentenced to five months in jail after forcing her teenage daughter into marriage with a 40-year-old man.

The woman allegedly forced her daughter into marriage with Jelias Nyika, but the young girl refused. 

On the same night, however, the woman forcibly took her daughter to Nyika's homestead where she stood guard on the door while Nyika had sex with the young girl.
