THE family of a 27-year-old Masvingo woman, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by president of the Chiefs Council, Fortune Charumbira, has demanded the former deputy minister’s arrest
The victim filed a case of sexual assault against Charumbira, who is also president of Pan-African Parliament (PAP), on Saturday last week at Masvingo Central Police Station under RRB 5457646.
Police said they would release a statement on the matter.
The victim is said to be Charumibra’s niece.
In an exclusive interview with NewsDay, the father, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim, said: “My daughter is terrified.
“She feels intimidated. This is because of the communication that he has been receiving from the perpetrator.”
Charumbira allegedly tried to influence his niece to drop the case, but did not succeed.
“She will not bow to any influence to withdraw the charges,” the father said. NewsDay
