A 39-year old woman Nyaradzo Nyathi, has accused MDC Alliance Leader, Nelson Chamisa of raping her. The woman reported the matter to Norton Police station on Thursday, 28 February 2019.
The woman is the wife of Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) agent Herbert Garikai Nyathi, who is posted in Canada.
Nyaradzo, according to police sources, said she was returning from a jog at around 9.45PM on November 8 last year and had just reached their gate when Chamisa allegedly emerged from nowhere, grabbed her and raped her inside her home in Knowe Phase 2.
The MDC leader’s spokesman Nkululeko Sibanda said they would not be commenting until they hear from the police.
The alleged rape is being investigated under crime reference CR15/03/19.
ZimLive has been told that Zimbabwe’s ambassador to Canada, Florence Zano Chideya, ordered Nyaradzo to be returned home after her mental health was questioned. Nyaradzo had accused her husband of rape, but he escaped arrest because he enjoys diplomatic immunity.
Police sources say Norton police have referred the case to police headquarters in Harare, and police are keen to question the MDC leader.
