News:Magistrate aquits Mutsvangwa in rape case. Says evidence was exaggerated

<vote /> Neville Mutsvangwa was yesterday acquitted of raping a 43-year-old woman at his father’s offices in Harare. Harare magistrate Hoseah Mujaya ruled that the complainant’s evidence was poorly presented. He also observed that the evidence was exaggerated.

Majaya said

To the police, the complainant said she was penetrated twice but in court she said once. I cannot accept that she is illiterate that she cannot count to two. Can we shift the blame to the police? If at all the police wanted to make life easy for the accused, then this was a poor attempt. There are contradictions on whether the accused removed the condom before the complainant was made to suck his p***s. The moment the rape victim becomes unreliable, the State case collapses. He is not guilty and hereby acquitted.

Neville is the son of Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association chairman Christopher Mutsvangwa. He was facing two counts of rape and aggravated indecent assault.
