Teenager (19) Charged With Murder After Killing Sex Pest Who Tried To Rape Her

A 19-year-old teenager who fought off and killed a sex pest who was attempting to rape her has been arrested and charged with murder.

 

Online publication Zimlive reports that the police confirmed that the young woman, Tariro Matutsa of Nyenda Village, Mutoko was charged with murder following the death of 40-year old Sure Tsuro.

According to an internal police memo that detailed the incident, Tsuro had been repeatedly harassing Matutsa and demanding sexual favours from her.

On June 7, Tsuro is reported to have gone to the young woman’s home in the morning. The 19-year-old was alone and was preparing rice for breakfast when Tsuro proposed love to her and started harassing her.

 

“Tsuro proposed love to the accused person who turned him down. Tsuro went on to take a pot containing rice from the fireplace and threatened to throw it away in protest. He later withdrew his intention and brought it back to the fireplace before going away.”

After his unsuccessful attempts in the morning, Tsuro returned to the woman’s home in the evening. Once again, she was alone and this time she was preparing supper.

 

“Tsuro went on to propose love demanding consent for sexual intercourse from Matutsa. The accused person again turned him down. The now-deceased went on to spill a boiling pot containing meat in protest. The accused picked up the pieces of meat from the ground and washed them with water.”

 

“Tsuro persisted, demanding to have sexual intercourse with Matutsa, and the accused person refused. Tsuro suddenly produced his erect penis and charged towards the accused person. The accused person took a glowing piece of firewood, extinguished it using water that was in a bucket at the fireplace, and assaulted the now deceased several times on the legs and hands.

 

“The accused person also assaulted the now deceased twice on the head using the same log. Tsuro staggered away from the fireplace and walked out of the yard. He fell to the ground 10 meters away in the middle of a dirt road leading to Jumbe Business Centre.”
