Two Zimbabwean men charged with raping a 19- year-old Francistown teenager allegedly forced her to perform oral sex first.
Kudakwashe Masawi (27) and James Donga (31) from Harare and Lupane respectively were not asked to plead to a single count of rape each when they briefly appeared in the Francistown magistrates’ court on Wednesday.
The Zimbabwean duo were suspected to have sexually violated the girl on Saturday April 5, 2013 near Ntshe River in Monarch, Francistown.
Police said that the rapists pounced on the girl and her boyfriend while they were taking a walk.
One of the culprits brandished a knife causing the boyfriend to run for his life leaving his young lover at the mercy of the alleged rapists, police revealed.
Immediately after the rape the girl went to the Francistown Central Police Station to report an incident of rape by two men who also forced her to perform oral sex on them.
The two suspects were not eligible for bail because they did not have valid passports.
