Man jailed 8 years for raping friend – Bulawayo24 News

A 24-year-old Harare man will spend 8 years in jail after he was found guilty of raping his friend.

Denzel Chikore was convicted by Harare Magistrate Mr Taurai Manuwere after a full trial.

The magistrate initially sentenced Chikore to 12 years in jail before suspending four on condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next five years.

The court heard that on January 14, 2023 at around 5 pm the complainant and Chikore were at number 19 Banchory road Mandara preparing for an event together with other friends.

After the preparations they had dinner and some drinks together.

After having dinner, the complainant who was tired proceeded to her room and slept leaving the door unlocked since her cousin was supposed to join her later.

At around 2 am the complainant woke up and discovered that Chikore was having sexual intercourse with her without her consent.

The court heard that the complainant was shocked and confused to such an extent that she could not do anything until Chikore finished having sexual intercourse with her.

Investigations established that Chikore later walked out of the room and the complainant continued sleeping. When the complainant woke up around 9 am she started recollecting what had transpired the night before.

She then narrated the story to her cousin.

The complainant later went home and told her uncle about the issue and asked him to help her inform her parents.

A report was later made at ZRP Highlands.

The accused person was arrested and brought to ZRP Highlands. The complainant was sent to hospital for medical examination and treatment.

Mass exodus at Skyz Metro FM – Bulawayo24 News

SKYZ Metro FM has announced the departure of yet another popular presenter, Manurse Ndlovu who joins six other staff members who have parted ways with the Bulawayo-based radio station.

The MC and award-winning presenter was popular with listeners and her departure will surely be felt as she was part of the first radio personalities when the station went on air, eight years ago.

She joins part of the mass exodus of staff including popular news reader Kundaimidzo Shamuyarira who announced his own departure earlier today.

Their departure though the station says “do not in any way affect our commitment to our valued audience and advertisers,” will shake the station as presenters ‘move with their audiences’ should they join rival stations.

Listeners follow their favourite presenters when they move which gives rival stations the edge.

“Skyz Metro FM would like to announce that we have recently experienced staff changes, following the departure of a number of our staff members who have moved on to other opportunities. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their contributions and wish them the very best in their future endeavours.

“We are proud and grateful for the efforts of the following staff members who have been with the station since its inception and have contributed greatly to where the station is today: Tafadzwa Mukome, Manurse Ndlovu, Bonakaliso Mlotshwa, Khayelihle Moyo, Kundaimidzo Shamuyarira, Shamiso Ncube, Njabulo Proud Moyo,” said the station in a press statement.

The station said it will continue with its programming and has already roped in new presenters to replace those who have left.

“We assure our listeners that we remain steadfast in delivering quality programming and providing a platform that entertains, educates, and informs. We remain committed to providing our listeners with the best radio programming,” said the station management.
