In a somewhat unusual turn of events, three women in Zimbabwe were charged on Friday with forcibly raping at least 17 men. The women, all in their mid-20s, were arrested near Zimbabwe’s capital after their car was involved in an accident.
Rosemary Chakwizira, 24, Sophie Nhokwara, 26, and her sister, Netsai Nhokwara, 24 had reportedly been targeting male hitchhikers, and allegedly laced their drinks with a tranquilizer or forced the men to have sex at gunpoint.
At the time of their arrest, the ladies were allegedly in possession of 33 condoms full of semen. According to an expert, they semen may have been intended to be used in rituals to eliminate bad luck or regenerate life.
These are hideous crimes, and hopefully the perpetrators will be brought to justice. I’m just glad that I haven’t yet heard anybody wonder what the male victims were wearing.
