A 27-YEAR-OLD man has been arraigned before the courts for allegedly sodomising his inmate at Mutare Remand Prison.
Moses Madhure last week appeared before Mutare regional magistrate, Mrs Lucie-Anne Mungwari facing charges of aggravated indecent assault as defined in Section (11) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.
He pleaded guilty and will be back in the dock on December 18 for sentencing.
The complainant (name withheld) resides in Machipanda, Mozambique, and is currently at Mutare Remand Prison.
The court heard that on unknown date, but during the month of November 2020, Madhure went into a bathroom where the complainant was bathing and requested to be intimate with him.
When the complainant refused, Madhure forced himself on him.
The matter came to light on November 29 when the complainant, acting under duress, was seen caressing Madhure’s privates by another inmate who went on to inform the prison officer who was on duty.
Madhure was subsequently arrested.
