A FORM Four pupil at Stanmore Secondary School has appeared in court for raping his 10-year-old cousin sister while her three-year-old younger brother watched.

The teenager, who cannot be named for ethical reasons was not asked to plead when he appeared briefly before Gwanda magistrate Miss Nomagugu Ncube facing rape charges. He was remanded out of custody on free bail to November 1.

Prosecuting Mr Takudzwa Mafudze said the teenager raped the juvenile last year on 30 September while she was a Grade Five pupil at Shake Primary School and while he was a Form Three pupil.

"On 30 September last year the accused was left alone with his 10-year-old cousin sister and her two siblings aged three and five years old. He prepared lunch for them and after they ate he tasked his cousin sister to go and fetch firewood. The complaint left and took her three-year-old brother with her.

"The teenager followed them into the bushes and upon catching up with them ordered his cousin to have sexual intercourse with him. The juvenile refused and her cousin brother went on to rape her while her three-year-old brother watched and warned the complainant against reporting the matter,'' he said.

Mr Mafudze said upon her mother's return the juvenile disclosed what her cousin brother had done to her.

He said the matter was reported to the police, resulting in the teenager's arrest.
