JONAS Mukoma (26) of Makarutsa village, Rushinga was on Friday jailed 15 years for raping and impregnating a woman suffering from mental illness by a Bindura magistrate.

The magistrate Marehwanazvo Gofa conditionally  suspended 5 years.

Prosecutor Samson Chamunorwa told the court that sometime in December last year Mukoma saw the complainant at a grinding mill and took her in his tuck-shop where he locked the door and raped her once without protection.

He threatened her not to review the rape to anyone.

During the same month the rapist lured the complainant to his kitchen and used the same modus operandi.

The matter came to light when the complainant fell pregnant and upon being interviewed by her grandmother she exposed Mukoma.
