A Harare man stood before Harare magistrate court yesterday, facing allegations of raping his two step grandchildren.
Hudson Makavire 61, was dragged to court following accusations of having sexual intercourse with two juveniles, who happen to his step grandchildren.
The court heard that, sometime in November last year, the accused took the minors to bed several times on different occasions.
The girls confirmed that they were sexually harassed on several occasions.
One of the complainants told the court that she received a death threat from the step grandfather claiming that she will die if she discloses the matter.
The complainant’s mother, Chipo (not real name) stood before the court as the witness.
She told the court that after being informed by the neighbours about the issue, she took her daughters away from accused’s home.
The witness then reported the case to the police leading to the arrest of Makavire.
Harare magistrate Fadzai Mthombeni stand down the case to Monday 9 May for paving way for other witnesses who were absent to testify in court.
