•ILLIGAL ZIMBABWEAN ARRESTED AND DETAINED

Many enjoyed Independence holidays for the first time in two years because of Covid 19 disruptions, but it turned out to be a disastrous time for a 37- year -old woman who was allegedly raped by an illegal immigrant.

The illegal alien, 23- year – old Thabani Murudangwa, is accused of raping a 37- year old woman of Marobela village on the 1st of October.

His arrest opened a can of worms for him as the police found that he has been in Botswana illegally and without travelling documents.

He entered the county through ungazetted point of entry on December 2020 near Maitengwe.

Murudangwa was therefore arraigned before Francistown Magistrate Court on Monday where two counts were leveled against him.

In court, the Investigating Officer, Meshack Mosika indicated that it is a fresh matter that happened immediately after Independence Day.

“We pray that the accused be remanded in custody to allow investigations. We need to identify some potential witnesses and collect their statements. The charge the accused is facing is a serious one which attracted public interest as it is associated with gender based violence,” said the Investigating Officer.

“We fear that should he be given bail he might escape. I find him not a bail candidate. So we pray he be remanded in custody until the completion of this matter your worship,” pleaded the Investigating Officer.

His plea bore fruits as Murudangwa was remanded in custody. He will be back in court on the 28th of October.
