Female rapists with 33 condoms versus Male rapists with 33 girl victims in Zimbabwe - Be the judge.
In the last decade, I spent most of my time going to police stations and tracking cases of rape involving minors and not a single day did I see mobs of people thronging police stations to get a glimpse of the male rapists whose cases were so crystal clear. They did not need to be paraded to be identified by their victims. I had caught them red handed and all the evidence was there and yet I still had to prove they were rapists. I am very angry and frustrated with the harsh and tough actions against so called three female rapists caught with 33 condoms compared to the leniency given to some male rapists with 33 rape victims in Zimbabwe.

Over the decade when I intervened in many cases of rape in Zimbabwe, I never saw a single sympathizer in and outside the police stations displaying any form of anger or disgust against male rapists.

Mind, some girls had to undergo surgery on their uterus and honeypot to put together whatever flesh remained after some gruesome rapes. A lot of girls fell pregnant and had to think of themselves being products of child rape and their children to be labelled thus. I saw blood oozing out of children`s honeypots and a lot of the time it was followed by pus. Many a times the odour would make you think the child would die quickly. There were many times when a child had to be taken to hospital only to be pronounced dead upon arrival - a rapist would have infected her with HIV and AIDS. No one thronged the hospital or even bothered to attend the many funerals of mostly orphaned and disadvantaged girls whose young lives were ruined by rapists. No journalist thought it news worthy or if they did through kindness for the story to be given a small corner to fill up a newspaper so that it was ready for publication. To think the three so called female rapists with 33 condoms would make every journalist in the world run up and down like we have seen in the past weeks generating over 500 news articles within a day has shocked me. I am just thinking of a situation where everyone sympathizes with semen in a condom more than the torn honeypot of a baby. Nxa !!!

To be frank, I did not know that the Zimbabwean society was so against rape until a few weeks ago when three women were found with 33 condoms with semen. Just having the condoms turned them into rapists even though no victims had come forward. A car accident scene was turned into a rape crime scene within seconds and the women were paraded across the whole country for male rape victims to come and identify them. Mind you when I went to report rape to police stations with girl victims, they had the semen still dripping, not from a condom but from a child`s honeypot. I had a medical report from a government registered doctor confirming rape and still no one thronged to the police stations to protest. Within hours of being taken by police I saw the rapist walking scot-free and not even his passport was condition for bail like I saw with the three alleged female rapists.

As I write this article I feel anger and disappointment at the way people have only supported male victims of rape and ignored the many calls of babies and little girls being raped in Zimbabwe. Right now, one alleged rapist I have been pursuing Dr Munyaradzi Kereke (Advisor to Dr Gedion Gono of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and a businessman in Zimbabwe) who raped his 11 year old niece at gunpoint and is still a free man despite my call to police to arrest him and my plea to journalists to expose him. Recently he was in the government newspaper donating to Bosom  cancer screening for Beauty pageants. A Registered medical doctor in a government hospital whose report is in my possession right now confirmed that this man raped the girl and damaged her genital organs in a very cruel way. He tore a hymen of a virgin girl who had never thought one day at her age any male organ would get into her and leave her with both physical and psychological scars that are so deep and next to impossible to heal. It might be the case that he wanted the blood of this virgin girl to make his medical centre prosperous. I have a detailed police statement which my client gave to a senior police officer and it has just remained a statement like thousands of others at police stations in Zimbabwe. The child is living in fear and her mother has sought refuge in a foreign country in fear of being persecuted as Dr Munyaradzi Kereke has threatened the family many times.

Another rogue alleged rapist Obediah Msindo of Destiny of Africa Network was released by a high court judge after terrorising me and the junior magistrate who said he had a case to answer. Even to date myself and my client are still in exile and had to flee for our lives. The magistrate was allegedly fired and one senior officer in Attorney General Office who handled this case bravely was transferred to an unknown destination. Police did a fantastic job by keeping evidence of his semen and torn underwear under lock and key. Despite his semen being on this underwear as evidence he was discharged. To think police are searching for male rape victims when my victims of rape are ready and need justice has shocked me and has made me see what attitudes we must work against in Africa as a whole.

Now I read that the three alleged female rapists are being paraded in prison regalia with their hair and faces deformed after being granted bail. They are facing allegations of rape and already given the public insults that have come their way compared to Dr Kereke for instance who is scot-free and dining and wining with big people as if celebrating molesting children is a good thing. What a shame!!

I am fully aware they will be punished but to be paraded in public and to have yourself paraded in every newspaper in the world to me sounds like public verdict. Whatever punishment follows after this one is not as terrible and severe as harassment they have faced so far. When women commit segxwal crimes even if these are allegations they are guilty automatically. If men rape children and babies they are innocent until proven guilty. It can take a long time to prove them guilty than it takes for female rapists to be proved innocent. This is what the public law says and it is the one that works and is engineered by patriarchy.

I did not know rape was such a serious crime until recently when women were caught with 33 used condoms. Mind they were caught with condoms and not rape victims!!!!
