Zim rapist caught napping at crime scene

2012-02-14 13:02

Harare - A young Zimbabwe man who raped a 72-year-old woman was arrested after he was caught by neighbours fast asleep and naked inside her house, state media reported on Tuesday.

According to the Herald newspaper, Strive Vhune, 26, broke into the elderly woman's house in the south-eastern district of Chivi, raped her, then fell asleep.

The woman went out to alert neighbours who caught him on the scene naked and handed him to the police.

"The suspect fell asleep soon after raping the woman who then took advantage and alerted neighbours who managed to apprehend him after he fled from the bedroom hut while stark naked," police spokesman Tineyi Matake told the Herald.

"Vhune is in custody while police finalise investigations and he will appear in court soon," Matake said.

    How stupid can you be!! Lekker bliksem! Wish all criminals were this dumb. Maybe the cops can actually catch some of them, then...

      I do NOT condone his actions and he deserves being castrated! But just as one sentence of a bit in irony: “Experience beats amateurs!”

    until death do us apart, taken literally

  • Burtfred - 2012-02-14 13:31

    The cops are mostly fast asleep too.

    The moral of the story is, 'STIRRING BIG POTS IS NOT A BOYS PLAY'

    let's hope he never wakes up again and goes straight to hell

    Mamparra of the week in Zim, Hope they hang him.

      Don't worry Hermann, after the ZRP (Zimbabwe Republic Police) are done with him, he'll be crying for the noose. In Zim we have a way of "dealing" with such scum, beat him till he wants to die, then beat him some more. Then we send them to Chikuribi Maximum Security (google it) where he'll languish till the bed bugs the sieze of small rodents finish him off. That's how ALL rapists and murderers should be treated in SA. I have a solution to South Africa's rape epidemic (yes epidemic), send them all to Zim prisons, I tell you, the rape stats will drop like the Zim dollar did!!!

      @the_gob I just googled that prison jerrrrr I'll rather be thrown in a lion cage with hungry lions in it than be jailed in that prison. Its hectic and scary.

  • Raeez - 2012-02-14 14:13

    Well averyone, in african we dont have a name called rape. It is a western name or english. Rona re bua kaho beta kase habo rona. Tlohelang ho pota, meloko ke lona.

      Jan it seems you are the problem.

      Fidel - 2012-02-14 15:24

      Maybe in Sotho culture, but definately not African. In isiXhosa, it's called "ukudlwengula" or "ukuZuma".

      the_gob - 2012-02-14 15:44

      In Shona (Zimbabwe) its called kubhinya...And if they catch like this poor bastard, you'll wish you'd have used your hand. Cause after they're done "questioning" him, my friend, I tell you, death will seem a good way out. But rape is not a capital offence in Zimbabwe, but spending any time in Zimbabwean prisons is far worse than the hang man's noose..

      Anthony - 2012-02-14 18:28

      And in most civilized soceities, its simply called; CRIME

  • Michael White - 2012-02-14 15:45

    Its not acceptable, this old man should have known that you ALWAYS need to provide a small meal and taxi fare before your nap else it's rape.

      the_gob - 2012-02-14 15:50

      Old man? He's 26
