A man was arrested, charged and convicted of rape for sexually assaulting his own grandmother on numerous occasions.
Police in Zimbabwe, have arrested the 32-year-old man for raping his 95-year-old grandmother.
The suspect shocked the court on Friday, when he said that his grandmother begged him to have sex with her.
The man appeared before Hwange regional magistrate Mr. Dambudzo Malunga, where he is facing three charges of rape.
However, in his defense, the suspect said: “I did not rape my grandmother. She asked me to have sex with her, saying that she had been alone for a long time after the death of my grandfather.
“When I refused, she literally begged me, saying that she can still perform as a young woman, regardless of age. I had no other choice, but to help her out when she really wanted sex.”
The court heard that the man went to his grandmother’s house numerous times during the night and went to her bedroom where she was sleeping.
The grandmother told a family member about the rape, but refused to disclose the name of the perpetrator.
However, after she was repeatedly raped by her grandson, she went to the village head, Aleck Nyoni, and told him about the rapes.
The 32-year-old man was arrested and found guilty of the rape. He is being held without bail.
