An elderly man was arrested for raping a young girl who came to visit him.

84-year-old Forward Akundila of Gweru, Zimbabwe, appeared before Gweru Magistrate Musaiona Shotgame, after being charged with rape.

Prosecutor Edward Gwainda said that the 10-year-old girl and her brother, went to a friend's house in the suburb of Mkoba.

On their way home, the brother met his friend. While he was hanging out with his friend, the girl went to visit the 84-year-old man who lived nearby.

The girl knew Akundila, as he was the landlord of her family’s home, and she had been to his home before.

The girl told police that she found the defendant sitting on a wooden bench outside of his house.

Akundila, who was home alone, invited the girl inside before taking her to his bedroom, where he raped her.

Akundila then gave the girl $1 and warned her not to tell anyone about the incident.

The girl went home and immediately told her mother, who called police. The girl was taken to Gweru Provincial Hospital, where she was examined and found to have been raped.

Akundila was then arrested on one count of rape.
